Our Outreach Project
End of the Universe Outreach Project is the social outreach branch of Hotel at the End of the Universe. Our activities are to coordinate volunteers and to support the school and children’s home of the Nepali NGO “Children of the Universe”. After destruction of so many homes due to the earthquake of April 2015, we have furthermore started to help rebuild homes of the locals.
We form a bridge between those interested in offering their skills to Nepal on the one hand and our local connections on the other, qualifying us to give our volunteers the best experience at local prices. There is much development work to be done in Nepal in general, and as such in our area from Nagarkot to Bhaktapur. The outreach project aims to make use thereby of local professionals in the fields of development, education, hospitality, cargo, travel and trekking.
We hope to offer more than just a 'filling of gaps' in the projects. We aim to really develop the places that we let our volunteers work at. In other words, we would rather train the teachers at a school, than only teach the students.
To accommodate to all budgets, our packages are basic. We can furthermore provide you with information and materials to fundraise for your stay and/ or the outreach project in case you choose to do so. For more information, please contact email@example.com
We have arranged for locals to be able to take loans at service charge at local banks to rebuild their homes. 25% of the loan will be excused if building experts judge the newly built home earthquake proof. We furthermore deliver aid (financial/ material) to other projects, i.e. the restoration of a government school wall that has collapsed.
The Karuna School
The Karuna school (non-profit) focuses on the needs of more than 70 young village children, with nursery, and kindergarten classes. It is set in a beautiful spacious green environment in Telkot. The school provides the poorest with scholarship, while letting capable parents take a financial share in the cost by requesting a minimal yearly school fee. Concerning the play-way method that is used, one of the teachers commented: “I’m so happy to be able to be friendly with the children. They come to us for help and comfort. In our time, we were so scared of our teachers!”. Educational professionals may apply for a special volunteer package! For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Children’s Home
The children’s home is the home of 10 children, a house mother and a helper. Various well wishers help the children with their daily homework. The children call each other brother and sister, and the atmosphere is one of a family. The NGO depends on donations to support the home.
