Hello i am Wasim Akram and live in a small town of india named Gopalganj(Bihar). i am running a school which has around 150 students.They are mostly from underprivilaged and rural background. In order to provide my students help like making them learn from someone who is not from our culture(which seems to be a great idea)
We would like you to stay with us and tell kids about your country and culture,teach them English,yoga, meditation or something like that.we are friendly and we follow an age old saying 'atithi Devo bhawah' (guests are like God).
So if you want to know and feel about the real india,you are most welcome here.
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help with Computers/ Internet
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Travellers would get a first hand experience of how indian people of small town lead their lives.You can also learn about local language and Hindi,education system of India.we can also teach you on how to cook indian food.
Apart from all these you will be able to feel what indians from rural areas think about people of other countries...they basically revere them.
Please come to our small town and feel the warm gesture of we people.
Language practice-You can teach your language so that our students have this opportunity to know about you and your country.
Teaching-One can help us in teaching subjects like Science,Maths,English as ours is a middle school it has students till grade 6 only.after school we have class for teaching people how to speak english so you can help us in that too.
Help with computers-One can teach them about computers as well
Other-You can help us create an environment of learning the way you did in your country which i think would be amazing.
You will be provided a separate room with washroom and clean drinking water. we provide beds, mattresses, pillows and blanket and food(lunch and dinner everyday.)
Most probably you wont be needing a penny while staying with us.
They can meet local people and get to know about their lives, We have Buddha's place( Kushinagar) and Kesariya where he got Enlightenment not very far from here (50km away)
I personally believe that travelling and visiting historical monuments of a country is fine but to get the real feel of the country culture and environment you got to spend some time with the local people.. Especially in india where more than 75% of the population is living in rural area.
