Voluntariat în Nepal

În octombrie 2011 am călătorit în Nepal, într-o ceată pestriță ce număra nu mai puțin de 28 de călători. A fost una din cele mai interesante experiențe – am văzut locuri, am testat arome, am ascultat mantre, am cunoscut oameni. Nepalezii ne-au cucerit prin simplitate și naturalețe, prin portul lor plin de culoare, prin frumusețea interioară.

 

Bijaya Ghimire ne-a însoțit în tot acest timp, fiind unul din cei doi ghizi nepalezi care ne-au purtat pe drumurile de la poalele Himalayei. De-a lungul călătoriei, în lungile conversații i-am descoperit latura sa spirituală deosebită, reușind să aflăm o mulțime de lucruri despre o lume aproape de neînțeles europeanului de rând. O lume în care pacea spirituală este pusă înaintea bunăstării materiale. O lume în care un simplu creion de la IKEA poate mobiliza un sat întreg de la marginea junglei, stârnind un interes neașteptat printre copiii adunați în jurul unei colibe din chirpici numită școală. Am aflat cu ceva timp în urmă că acei copii vor să învețe și că un creion sau un caiet le-ar fi mai utile decât o pungă de bomboane.

Nepalul nu înseamnă doar munți, sate sau orașe. Cine ajunge acolo poate trăi aventura vieții, iar prin programele de voluntariat poate vedea o altă față a acelei lumi, nu doar pe cea turistică. Iată cum descrie Bijaya experiența unui voluntar din grupul celor 28:

Volunteering abroad in Nepal means going to beautiful land for helping, learning spiritual practices and adventure programs that ranges from trekking to Himalayas, jungle safari, paragliding, rock climbing, bungee jumping and much more. Volunteering in Nepal means to take part in day to day life and lifestyles different then you do at home in West. Life in cities is chaotic and unlinked with nature but in the villages it is simple and colorful. The sights in the mountains are peaceful, the smells are overwhelming. Third eye volunteer Nepal offers various Nepal volunteer projects that ranges from teaching, child care at orphanages, conservation & environment, medicine & healthcare, agriculture volunteer, elephant care projects, journalism, business, veterinary medicine and sports.

One of the romanian volunteer Daniela Suceava says “I embarked upon an adventure through Nepal in october 2011, and was mesmerized by the beauty I found in this country’s places and people. Our trip was designed and coordinated by Third Eye Volunteer Nepal and I am thankful to Bijaya for giving me the opportunity to experience their culture so genuinely. Among the many surprises they had in store for us, there was also the chance to visit and volunteer in an orphanage in Pokhara. Seeing as how I am also involved in a charity here in Romania (we provide medical treatment, shelter and adoption for stray dogs), I was more than happy to visit the orphanage. I arrived there to find a small, well-kept and clean building and was shown around the premises and given thorough explanations about the project and it’s impact on the children’s lives. It was heartwarming to see that no matter the culture, people who want to make a difference will struggle and fight to see their dream come true, and regardless how small the initiative may be it will generate a ripple effect upon society that may prove to stretch far beyond imagination. So thank you, my friends, for making the world a better place!”

The writer has also travelled Nepal in 2011 and had short visit to Tharu village in Chitwan Nepal. The simply giving of school supplies had brought smile and radiance of happiness in the face of underpriviledged children. Many organizations asks donation as help but Third Eye Volunteer Nepal prefers your physical presence to help. When you are under such programs you are transformed into new persona. If you want to go Nepal in low cost and help the locals and travel around contact Third eye Volunteer Nepal by visiting their website, www.volunteersummernepal.org

Așadar, dacă vă tentează să cunoașteți mirifica lume de la poalele Himalayei printr-un program de voluntariat, Bijaya vă așteaptă cu brațele deschise. Nu uitați de creioanele IKEA – micii prieteni nepalezi știu de ce 😉
