Art on the Road trip Jan 8-17 2012: Volunteer needed

We are planning to take art and crafts to the rural areas of Nepal in January month joining hands with COMMITED a Non-Profit based in Kathmandu. We will be visiting the Thangpalkot and Gunshakot Villages of Sindhupalchowk District. This is a road trip intended to expose art to the rural underprivileged children of Nepal. The plan is that we will leave on the 8th of January and return January 17th.The school has arranged accommodation close to their premises; you will just need to bring a sleep mat/mattress and sleeping bag. They have been so amazing and offered to subsidize our meals by 50%. COMMITTED has agreed that they will assist us with the bus fees. I can guarantee that this will be an amazing adventure for those of you that would like to experience the culture and spend some time with the children. You can also look at this link and see the projects COMMITTED are planning for this school. Please give them your support. .  
We will be visiting 3 schools which are approximately 20 minutes walk from each other. These schools are in the Sindhupalchowk District, and we will reach it by local bus. We will be organizing art and craft classes for the children. Our only request is that volunteers work on a few ideas for art and craft projects for the children and collect supplies for the art classes. No experience needed, but you have a love for children and have fun with colors. Please write me at and I can provide you with the program details. If you scroll down the page you will see a video that COMMITTED has made on the projects they have started in that area. It will give you an idea of where we will be travelling.  Join us on facebook
