Youth Service Connects International and Intercultural Relation Among Young Nepalese and Korean Volunteers

 

 

Six days period of engagement and contribution to community was organized on 11th to 16th July, 2012 by a total of twenty local and international student volunteers to further promote global citizenship, intercultural cooperation, and to foster understanding between each nationality as a same human family.

 

The fourth Global Poomashi Project in Nepal was formally commenced on July 11, 2012 at the welcoming program for the Korean and local volunteers and staff. It ended with brotherhood and sisterhood ceremony among the Korean volunteers and their local counterparts that brings sharing, understanding, and respect of culture and tradition.

 

The values of the project are experienced not only by the volunteers but also by some college students particularly the K& K International College students who participated in a Fundraising event that collected a total amount of NRs 4,000 as a contribution to helping the North Korean Children. Soon after, the team proceeded for the Launching of Alllights Village Project – a project that helps remote communities to be given a nighttime illumination for students who are studying and for other family members for their household chores through environmentally-friendly solar lanterns provided by GPFF-Korea. The alllight village project creates a lasting bond with local communities not only as recipient but an owner committed to balance progress through harmonious activities of service, cooperation, and education.

 

Joint rapport and greater cross-cultural understanding were shared among the volunteers and the local community during the three-day community service.  Volunteers were divided into three groups. One group focused on painting the school (Shree Krishna Higher Secondary School, Bhaktapur District), another on giving education to students, and the other group on sports and games outreach. Also, Distribution of ecobags brought more excitement to all students after they painted it with a colorful owned-design pictures (most of the ecobags were designed with Nepal and Korea flag) together by the volunteers and the students. Aside from ecobags, they also received donated shoes that were brought from Korea by the Korean volunteers themselves.  “I feel how they love us and how they want to help us, I feel so happy, “one student shared.

It was a day that cleared the barrier among two different races where volunteers and students build deep closeness as same human beings. “It’s nice to see the smile coming from the people around you. As we work together in goodwill, we can spread more happiness to everyone, “said Mr. Kwangmo Lim, a student volunteer from Korea.

The community service was then extended to cleaning the Bagmati River, considered a holy river to among Hindu believers where they worship the natural resource of water till date.The volunteers, together with twenty five students of Shree Krishna Higher Secondary School, wasted no time but immediately rolled up their sleeves and spearheaded toward sanitation awareness, home to home visit, proper segregation campaign, and tree planting. “Serving my community with young leaders from another country is a golden opportunity for me not only to meet friends but also give us a chance to learn from each other,” said Mr. Safal Mishra, a student volunteer from Pyramid International College. 


The Global Poomashi is a project developed by GPYC-Korea. The word “Poomashi” is a pure Korean word which means “exchange of love” with each other. It is a project to understand and respect differences and to love each other as one family.
