Wanted young documentary film making volunteers
Timal Tourism Development Nepal is looking for volunteers to research, write, and produce a documentary film about ‘Children in rural areas of Nepal’. The main root cause behind the poor status of Nepalese children is poverty. Children in the more remote areas of Nepal are especially disadvantaged and Condition of Nepalese Women and their living style. The film will show how their future depends upon building an economy based on the foundations of high quality, universal education. This is an opportunity to explore an important aspect of life in Nepal and to contribute to a positive solution.
Nepal has many social problems that promote the poor status of children. As a developing country of South Asia, Nepal’s population growth rate is high and the proportion of children in the population is high too.
The UNICEF reports says that more then 50,000 children die annually in Nepal with malnutrition as the underlying cause in more then 60 % of those deaths. It also says that half the children in Nepal are underweight, the literacy rate for 15-24 year olds is 81 for males and 60 for females, and that 31% of children aged 5-14 are involved in some sort of child labor .

Became a Volunteer for e-learning project in Nepal
ICT volunteers needed for e-learning, IT and telecentre project in Nepal. Become a IT volunteer to help those who do not have basic/advance computer skills or access to ICT (information and communications technology) and Internet is widening. IT Computer training volunteers need not be experts to teach computer skills to new beginners. IT volunteers support local teachers, improve computer training and e-Learning in Nepal. Volunteers teach 15 – 20 lessons per week. We recommend that you prepare your lessons with your local teacher colleague. This makes teaching easier. The IT volunteer should however also be prepared to teach alone. Computer training ranges from hardware and software basics, games, Office programs and Internet usage. IT Volunteers demonstrate applications, and then help children to explore and learn by themselves. We encourage our computer training volunteers and local computer teachers to facilitate for children and students to use the school computers in their free time.
