Over the past year, all the changes connected to COVID-19 have posed new challenges to all of us. Many workcamps had to be cancelled. Volunteers who were excited to work in an intercultural group in a foreigncountry could not make it to their camps and many of us were forced to stay within their own houses for months. However, not only bad things came out of this. During lockdown we started to host our first virtual camps and learnt that online meetings are a great way of connecting with people all across the world and promoting our ideals and environmental awareness, even without meeting physically. Join us in this virtual camp to volunteer and learn in a different way

TRAVAIL

SEEDS camp leaders will be creating opportunities for you to focus ondifferent current environmental and sustainability issues through a selection of workshops and activities online. One of our aims is to help create more environmentally aware consumers and travellers. During this campparticipants can share their love for (and learn more about) global and local environmental topics such as climate change, waste management, sustainable solutions. There will be two to three different sessions each day. As each of our camp leaders have focused on specifictopics according to their knowledge and experiences, the sessions we offer can be arranged with the participants based on what they are more interested in and can include:9679; Plant-based cooking and vegetarian baking classes9679; DIY natural self-care or cleaning products tips9679; DIY repurposing plastic bottles/used products workshops9679; Everyday eco-friendly habits workshops9679; Overall Iceland introduction and Iceland-related environmental issues workshops9679; Presentations about the effects of tourism and slow-travel tips9679; Presentations about the problems of fashion industry and clothes upcycling tips9679; Presentations about climate change and how to face deniers9679; Presentations about permaculture and urban agriculture9679; Fun and interesting environmental quizzes and documentariesNote that this project is a learning/sharing camp, so we encourage everyone to share their knowledge and participate actively in this learning process. We also encourage our participants to create and sharepresentations about their countries, as our leaders will do the same. This is a great way to meet new people from all over the world, so you can exchange ideas, experiences, language, music, recipes and much more withthe other online volunteers, just as in a regular workcamp. Bring your own ideas and let s be creative together

LOGEMENT & NOURRITURE

SITUATION

This camp takes place online. It is accessible to everybody with a working internet connection. No borders, no visa, no need to travel, so you are saving CO2 emissions which is better for our beautiful planet While it is important to keep physical distance at the moment, we can create social proximity in the digital world. We believe that especially in times as challenging as these, it is important to raise our voices for solidarity andinternational friendship. International workcamps were created 100 years ago to work towards mutual understanding, peace and solidarity beyond borders. Let s keep this spirit and find new ways to get to know andsupport each other. These virtual camps are organised as an effort to keep up international volunteering, even if most of us cannot travel right now.

MORELIA, founded in 1541, was one of the first Spanish cities in Nueva EspaE a. The first viceroy, Antonio de Mendoza, named it Valladolid after the Spanish city and he encouraged Spanish nobility to move here with their families. In 1828, after Nueva EspaE a had become the Republic of Mexico, the city was renamed Morelia in honor of local hero JosE MarEa Morelos y PavEn, a key figure in Mexicos independence. Morelia is the state capital of Michoacan and its a dynamic and beautiful city. Also, Morelia is an increasingly popular destination, and rightly so: the colonial heart of the city is so well preserved that it was declared a Unesco World Heritage site in 1991, and its cathedral is not just gorgeous, its inspirational.

Volunteers Initiative Nepal (VIN) is a NGO with the mission to empower marginalised communities through inclusive and holistic development programmes. This is done through the following project areas: – Education – Health and Environment – Economy – Basic Infrastructure Within the above project areas, we conduct the following programmes: – Women s Empowerment – Children s Development – Youth Empowerment – Disaster Risk Reduction – Environment and Conservation – Public Health and Medical Care https://www.volunteersinitiativenepal.org/ VIN works with local community schools in partnership

TRAVAIL

Children s Development is one of the major programs at VIN s Integrated Community Development Approach. The Goal of the Children s development program is to protect the rights of all children by providing them access to basic quality education, developing their life skills (creativity, leadership etc.) and providing access to health and hygiene services. VIN has different projects under children s development program such as Children s Clubs (CC), Early Childhood Development (ECD), School Attendance (Teacher Development, Parenting Education, School Infrastructure Development, and Child Sponsorship) and Child Care. Even in these days in Nepal, schools are focused mainly on examination and are not doing enough to develop life skills like creativity and leadership for children. Teachers only focus on reading and writing i rote learning. Creativity and individual differences in children are not explored. Due to the busy work schedule of parents, most of the children do not have an opportunity to socialize and be creative. That s the reason why, this types of camps are so essential to provide life skills development opportunities to children aged between 5-12 years old. We work only with disadvantaged communities as these families cannot afford to take their children to holidays during their Winter and Summer breaks. Children don t have a proper structure and environment at home, or a school to develop their innate talents. Children s camp (at winter and summer breaks) is one of the best places to explore their innate talents such as creativity and leadership. In this work camp, national and international volunteers will facilitate different types of fun and creative activities for the children where VIN works.Objectives: -To provide unique opportunities for overall development (social, emotional, physical, mental, creativity) and provide fun-time for children aged between 5 and 12 utilizing their vacation period.-To promote the friendship, understanding and solidarity among local young volunteers and cross-national volunteers.-To provide an opportunity to understand and appreciate the Nepalese culture and traditions via cultural immersion.The volunteers will conduct children s camp to promote their innate talents and creativity for their overall physical, mental, social and emotional development. During the children s camp volunteers will prepare sessions and take classes on following topics: Physical exercises, team building, drawing, colouring and painting, art, craft and origami, singing and dancing, drama, music, hiking, teaching language, and so on.

LOGEMENT & NOURRITURE

The volunteers will stay with the host family/hostel identified by VIN. The living facilities are simple and basic. Male and female volunteers will share the same living area with separate rooms.

The workcamp has two main activities. In the area of Sanet, there are so many orange and mandarine trees. Due to the workload and the lack of time, the farmers are not able to collect them and they got rotten on the trees. The farmers donated the fruits to who ever would like to pick them up. The task of the volunteers will be collecting the fruits to create a homemade marmalade and distribute it to the locals as a gift.In case the wheater is to bad and it is not possible to work outside, the volunteers will have another task which is collecting unused clothes and toys from the neighbours and pack them in order to send those little gifts to the orphanages.

LOGEMENT & NOURRITURE

The volunteers will stay in a volunteer house, with three rooms with several bunkbeds and bathrooms. They will share rooms with four to six other volunteers. The house includes a nice kitchen in which the volunteers will cook for themselves in the guidance of the camp leaders.Sheets need to be brought by the volunteer, sleeping bags are not necessary.
