Idea for training volunteer in Kathmandu

Estimated reading time: 1 minutes

This is an old post from a now-deprecated website. I’m keeping it around only for historical preservation reasons. Not much of it is relevant to the website you’re currently reading on. Also, this was a terribly-planned and executed post in general, I should have started writing earlier.

Airy is a 45-hour long training spread over three weeks (3 hours a day, five hours a week), aimed to acclimatize foreign volunteers

Why the need for training?

Who are the trainers?

Aspects of training:

1) History of Nepal ..6 hours 2) Current political situation in Nepal ..3 hours

3) Various cultural issues in Nepal (12)
