Kagitigaun, a village on the poverty line. Struggles with major physical, mental and social health factors. This is due to the village demographic having a high rate of uneducated and low income earning people.

Volunteers who choose to work on the womens emowerment project will assit by educating the women of their rights and role model what it means to be independent. The women in this vilage rely soley on men for their income.Polygamy and child marriage is a common culture in this village. Women are left neglected after there husbands collect other wives. Leaving them with no support and often forced to make unjust and uneducated decesions inorder to survive. They sell their children to the indian sex slave trade, where they are Subjected to Rape and HIV. Others will force their children to marry young, for the benefit and securities the marriage system of Nepal offers. Child pregancys are therfore a common trend within this village. Human harmony would like to Prevent these cultral practices and social norms.
Due to lack of education, Villagers of Kagitigaun are unaware of the health hazards that surround them. They are at high risk of contracting diseases, and have low morality rates due to high risk health concerns. This is a result of continual use of communal water sources and open defecation. The minority of Villagers, who understand the concerns regarding their water sources, must walk far distances in hopes of finding clean water, where they are often met unlucky.
Human Harmony Nepal, need volunteers to implement workshops based on educating Villagers of health and hygiene concerns. Running workshops that direct and model how to live a healthy lifestyle.
The 2015 earthquake, effected Kagitigaun in a variety of ways. The main result being the damage of infrastructure to homes, shops and buildings. Volunteers who choose to work on a Construction or Disaster Relief project will be working on private homes and public service areas that have yet to be fixed, due to low funding and low income earning familys.

Our NGO needs 4 types of volunteers:
A lack of teachers is present in all the 3 schools of the village.
The volunteers will be assigned in one school; Sunday to Friday (Saturday day-off).
It's about 5 hours work/day and the schedule depends of the school you will work in.
You will be most of the time assisted by a local who can translate your course and help you in the construction of your lessons.

The lack of education goes throughout the adults. Foreigners with charism and determination will be welcome to help us by doing speeches about women rights and empowerment, the environment, healthcare, hygiene etc.. Further they should plan different kind of programs in this fields, like recycling, health campaigns and so on.
More and more farmers use pesticide and chemicals for their fields. It kills their land and they don't know anything about it. Volunteers have to explain the risks about chemical agriculture.
Most of the people are not educated, unhygienic and they are not using toilets or even build toilet in their home. It causes sanitaries issues and diseases.
Help us to explain what a lack of hygiene can lead and talk about what can be the consequences.
Furthermore, they don't care about their environment. They throw their trash everywhere and don't use bins. That's why it is very important to raise awareness in that field.
The schedule is not determinate.
