Purpose

You will be given a unique opportunity to get to know a completely different part of the world where family and religion matters more than material goods. When meeting the young Nepalese you will learn about the life of contrast in Nepal as well as learn about yourself.

In the culture subject and during the trip you will widen your horizons and for sure transcend barriers. The trip contains both physical challenges as hiking with a backpack up a mountainside as well as the social and cultural aspect of staying with a host family without being able to speak a common language.

During the trip we will visit our friend ship school in a Nepalese mountain village for 3-4 days. Here we will take part in the everyday life. After the visit at the friendship school, we will experience a part of Nepal’s nature with the possibility of trekking, rafting and maybe a view of the Himalayan range. In the capital we will also work with social and political projects as for example women’s rights, charities, electric cars etc. where your interest is key.

In this culture subject we are going to work with many of UN’s global goals for sustainable development since Nepal is a developing country. We are in particular going to work with the goals for good health and well-being, quality education and no poverty.

Before the travel

In this culture profile subject, you will gain an understanding, through preparation, experiences and subsequent processing, of what it is like to live in a third world country such as Nepal. By concentrating on different themes within the Nepali culture, traditions, history and personal experiences, you will become fully equipped for this cultural meeting.

In our preparations for this trip, we will work with the social conditions in Nepal-among others, culture, religion, history, nature and geography.

You will also research for an article, film or lecture. The research before our departure will be the framework for investigations and interviews during our trip. Before departure you will also plan and prepare a smaller  project for teaching at our friendship school.

Physical training is also a part of the lessons before the travel.

After the travel

After we return you will prepare and give a lecture of your trip, experiences, and thoughts-either at the efterskole or for others who may be interested.
