Time is flying and it has now been over a month since I started my Vodafone placement with Our Sansar. My position has been a dual role of event assistant and education officer. On the Event side of things, I have very exciting news- Our Sansar comedy nights will be coming to London… on the 11th of July. These nights are always a success- Take a peep at Comedy Rock the Komedia from last year for an idea of how great this night will be!
After hours of trawling the internet for possible venues and appropriate spaces to host our night of giggles, I finally found Rumba bar in Leicester Square. They have very kindly agreed to let us have the venue for the night and we are now just that one step closer to putting on a fantastic night and raising money for the children’s home in Birgunj .
In regards to the educational project we have been working on, our main objective has been to partner schools in the UK with those in Nepal to create an exchange of cultural knowledge, improve literacy skills and encourage global awareness in the younger generation. I have received positive responses from various schools and have put myself to work creating a set of after-school classes that explore Nepalese culture and global awareness through pen pal schemes, art projects and creative stories. The articles I have read on this subject have been inspiring and I have discovered that there is a growing movement of internationally-minded educators with similar ideas in mind.
The following article ‘Why global awareness matters in schools’ really highlights the benefits of looking at such topics in schools.
Looking forward to seeing the Project come to life!
