I’m Julia from the Netherlands and I am 19 years old. Last year I went to Nepal for three months, on my own. I travelled, experienced the Nepali life and also volunteered at a school, named ASHA. I am so happy I made the decision to volunteer at this school. I learned so much and got new insights.
The first two weeks at the school I had the time to get used to everything, the children, the teachers, the way of teaching and so on. This was a comfortable way to get to know the ‘school life’ in Nepal, because it is so different than in the Netherlands.
After the two weeks I started to give arts and craft lessons. Everyday I made a new exercise for the children to practice their creative skills. It made me so happy to see how every kid enjoyed and did their best. They made some very beautiful work!
The teachers were so good and kind and I am amazed about the efforts they make to teach the children and give them a good time. ASHA make education possible for every child. I am glad I could be part of the ASHA famliy. They have a very special place in my heart!
