Area: DhadingI am Ajay, age of 35, I am founder and Principal of our academy, Vice- Chairman of the Prominent Welfare Society, Scouts Master for Nepal Scouts ( SCA Troop) and involved in local clubs with social services. I have a Master's Degree in Political Science, and a BA Degree in English Literature from Tribhuvan University. I have been teaching for ten years. My wife Bina, age of 28, is an administrator at the Academy and works in local women's groups as the leader in women empowerment issues. We have five year old daughter "Eminent Rimal (Sanskriti)", she prefers her Nepali name "SANSKRITI" which means culture. She reads in Class one at the Academy. I founded the academy in 2007 after a final wish from my father, who was a pioneer in bringing English education in to rural parts of Nepal. Sadly during the political crisis his school failed and he asked me to continue his dream of bringing education to all to develop communities. It is a government registered English medium school 4 km from our home which is located at the side of river Dharke, Dhading. Our place is one hour drive from Kathmandu ( 25 Kilometers) and on the way to Pokhara. We currently have 200 students that range from nursery to class 10 (age4-18). We want to develop our community by educating young people through active involvement in education, health, agriculture, languages, cultures, lifestyles, music, games and sports, the environment and its sustainability. Our Academy Mission • We provide qualitative education to both under privileged and privileged children irrespective of colour, creed religion and castes. Further, the students get ample opportunities to achieve their goals, establish social norms and values, and develop moral character in this ever changing world. At the academy, we believe in an education based on proper caring, counselling, love , positive thinking with a rounded curriculum. Our curriculum is based on significant lessons of mental and spiritual well-being, a direct involvement with nature to learn about sustainability of the environment, as well as music, sports, personality development, elocution, organic farming, project work, poetry, scouting, creativity and services that have been provided to the students by utilizing limited and locally available resources. At the Academy we provide our students the tools to unlock their potential and the freedom to explore the success in life in this ever changing world. The wealth of skills, knowledge and experiences that are brought by volunteers really builds a multi-cultural link for our students with the wider world. We welcome volunteers with mutual understanding, cooperation and a willingness to share food, cultures, lifestyle, languages, skills. Therefore creating a world wide network. Our Achievements: • Yale University's Service Project "Reach Out Spring Break Trip 2012". had been successfully completed their Trip at our Academy which helped students to learn many valuable lessons. • Participated in the Junior Wushu World Championship in Singapore and Asian Championship in China • 11 Gold medals at school-level Wushu games and 1 Gold medal in National Wushu Championship, including the best player award. We have excellence performance in educational activities by using limited resources. We are keen hosts and provide a traditional family experience for our volunteers. We hope to broaden our mutual understanding of other cultures, languages and lifestyles and share ideas to make our academy a success.

Area: SeasideDear volunteer/s. We do not plan to accept volunteers this summer 2014. Thank you. ___________________________________________________ I am a single mom in late 40ies. I live with my 11 old son in a small village, on Slovenian seaside, about 5 min from the sea. We live in a 3 bedroom flat, with our own entrance. We are easy going, likes to be in the nature, and likes to travel (I have been in more than 30 countries already, and my son in about 10 countries). The nearest beach is about 5 min away, possible to get there by bike or bus, or walk. We live not far from touristic place. I need a reliable and responsible volunteer, age over 21, for about 2 or 3 weeks in July 2013 (possible in August too), to take care about my son while I will be working (I work at University, with students exchanges) and teach him English or Italian, occasionally you can teach me as well.
Area:We are a family of five living on the south west coast of Norway. We run a small organic farm on the shore of the sea. We are building up our farm and have a lot of plans and ideas of what we want to do. We are moving slowly towards a permaculture farm and find our life very exciting, challenging and meaningfull. We have sheep and pigs and feed up some calfs from time to time. We want chickens. We also grow food for the animals and potatoes, vegetables to our self and for sale. We also have some fruits and berries. Most of the time we have smaller or bigger buildingprojects. The farm and small children and some extra work to get in some extra money fill most of our time. But we very much like to get out and about in the mountains, forest, sea or anywhere nice to explore around us. We also love books, games and a good conversation. We are trying to make as little mark on earth as possible without being to successful...
