Hope Story - Activities of Overseas Dispatch Unit: an unexpected year in Nepal

Meet New Nepal

 

Nepal has changed a lot from two years ago. Nepal, which seemed to stop after the earthquake, was moving forward little by little. There are more cars and motorcycles than ever before. Houses were being rebuilt everywhere. Foreign companies are starting to stand out, and the power supply, which was cut off for seven hours, will no longer be cut off. Also, Nepal has 4G, so the communication system has developed and the Internet has exploded. However, the growth in Nepal was new to me, who only remembered what happened right after the earthquake.

 

When I arrived in Nepal, I spent a month in the guest house at the branch office and tried to reach the people. Two teachers living with 15 Nepalese girls and a staff member named BizeI to oversee the branch offices. Children started feeling awkward about me, but they started to greet me first.

What I have to do and what I can do

 

My responsibilities were to research a new project that could be carried out in Nepal's branch, teach Korean to children, and establish a mentoring program for Global Hope in Nepal. As I was the first member of the WFK dispatched to the global Hope Nepal chapter, I often thought about what to do.

 

The Nepalese branch worked with neighboring public schools to prepare and implement after-school programs targeting children from low-income brackets. There were many attempts and difficulties, but we tried to give the children a better education opportunity. At Global Hope, the staff with children is called a mentor. Of course, mentoring programs, which provide not only intellectual but also social, emotional and physical care for children along with staff, have also been devoted to mentoring programs as they are major projects at the global Hope.

 

After a year, I came back to Nepal and had a hard time. It was often the first time for them to work for NGOs and to communicate with other people in different languages. There were times when children took turns absent, and there were times when government schools failed to keep regular classes because of frequent holidays. Keeping the effectiveness and consistency of education was not easy enough.

Precious people who never left me alone

After all, it was the " Person" who kept me going throughout the year. Every time I come to the branch, I say, " Jivan Sir, Annyeonhaseyo. There were home children saying hello. There were some staff members who always looked at each other's dictionaries and tried to understand the meanings of the words. There were Nepalese friends who came to play at home without being lonely. Whenever school breaks after school, I say, " I don't want to take a break! I can't come to the center. The Himalayas, which opened up when I felt gloomy, were left with a bonus.

I had considered hope to be difficult or readily apparent and as a result. I felt that hope only came from what I did. But Nepal's hope was in each one. Just as they came to me and helped me walk through the loneliness of my life, I had only to go and show them hope in their lives. It's been a long time since I found out this way. I would've been happier with the kids.

 

I feel I can come back soon as I feel sorry for it. And it is likely to wait longer as there are people who remember the year when they return. Hi Nepal, I'll be back again!

 

" After all, there was hope in it. "

 

Sharing Hope Together!
