Makwanpur Teams Deploy

7th February 2018

Today, Makwanpur team woke up before the dawn They were excited to be in their buses and embark on a journey that they will remember for the rest of their lives. For four days since their arrival, they were trained and facilitated in subjects regarding safety, health, hygiene and culture. Most importantly, they were introduced to the villages and projects. Both Nepali and UK volunteers have been intensively learning about their project goals, expectations and strengths.

The team allocations took place on 5th February where all the volunteers were allocated to their placements. It was one of the most exciting moments.
