A library is a collection of sources of information and similar resources, made accessible to a defined community/school for reference or borrowing. It provides physical or digital access to material, and may be a physical building or room, or a virtual space, or both. Learners are at the centre of learning in the library. In Nepal, there are not enough training organized for teachers and children on how to use library. So through this camp, volunteers will organize teaching / learning activating through the use of library resources. It’s very fun and creative way of learning.
Workcamps will be organized with the cooperation of local community schools under VIN’s children’s development program, education and working together with local teachers/children/ villagers.
The schools where we are conducting camps lacks facilities of library and other infrastructure. Some schools have some collections but they are not managed and used well. The rooms are not well painted and books are not arranged in the proper order. Children are not taught the skills of using library and its importance.
You not only manage the library but also organize a lot of activities with children at school. You will also conduct some classes of how library is managed and used. The library camp will help children developing reading and writing skills. Volunteers with the abilities on any sports, arts & crafts, music, dance, drama, in & outdoor group games are welcome.
Through this project we want to give every student an opportunity to learn, to enjoy reading, and to create new knowledge and understanding by the use of library.
