The Programme

International Citizen Service (ICS):

International Citizen Service is a UK government funded volunteer programme aimed at providing Nepali and UK young people the with opportunity to work together in the development sector to have an impact and become active global citizens. The programme is split into 2 parts, a 10-week placement and then a personal commitment to follow up your learning with writing a report. You will receive a certificate of completion from the UK government once your report has been accepted. There are also other further opportunities to engage with UK government Department for International Development (DFID) youth programmes after completion of the programme.

For the first part (placement), young people from the UK will travel to Nepal and work with you as part of a team of 12 volunteers – 6 Nepali and 6 UK plus 2 Team Leaders (1 Nepali/1 UK).

Our programmes are based in Gorkha and Makawanpur, and you will be living for 10 weeks in a selected community in a host home with a UK volunteer partner. Your team mates will be living in the same community as well and you will have 2 Team Leaders who manage the programme.

You will be responsible for delivering awareness raising sessions, community infrastructure, developing resources for the community, undertaking needs assessments and action research, helping our partners deliver training to the communities and promoting active global citizenship. You will live with a host home family in a community alongside a UK counterpart and you’ll be expected to participate in family life.

After placement, you will be expected to complete a report called ‘Action@Home’. This report is your commitment to the ICS programme to show what you have learnt and how you have applied it in your own community. We support you in this process and are here to help you achieve your positive impact.
