After the 7.8 magnitude-devastating earthquakes, Nepal suffers a lot, over 9000 people have been died and over half millions of people become homeless. In this tuff condition, the mostly vulnerable group is children group whom were witnessed that their parents have been died in front of them and they witnessed that their houses been collapsed. It might be certainly hit children’s mind very deeply and to make them feel okay and let them reintegrated to family again and back to normal life, this council camp could be best and fruitful.
By addressing all these things, we Living NEPAL in partnership with Cheers Nepal a local NGO in Nepal which is dedicated to work in the child and youth sector are working in counselling parts.
The working mechanism of council camp:
After driving 6 hour from Kathmandu we will reach at Kalikasthan from where we will separate for specific places or schools with our educational stuffs, four group with 2 each member will go to particular schools and complete the following tasks:
1.To give brief orientation session to every volunteer regarding the program schedule
2.Every volunteer’s team will leave for schools
3.At first, we will gather all the students and give brief introduction about us and also, we will hear from them as well.
4.secondly, we play different out door and normal games with children so that they can be familiar with us and that makes us to be trustworthy friends of them.
5.Then we will give them individual and group counselling regarding on related issues i.e. we let them tell jokes, sing a song or let them show all the talents they got also we will motivate them from different way.
6.To connect body and mind we train them to do meditation which helps them to feel more peace and prosperous from inside.
- Art for all: In this session, we will let them use their creativity and express their feeling through making drawings, arts and colouring and also, we will reward the best drawings.
8.we will deliver moral education to children that what are their duties and responsibilities also how they can contribute in nation building.
9.we will interact with kids that how we can cope in difficult situation and also about to be more responsible for our nation.
10.lastly, we will distribute all the educational material like; copy, pen, pencil and other stationary items
This is our tentative plan for each school and we will focus specially on counselling the kids and providing basic educational materials.
