Volunteer Belen

Let’s introduce our enthusiastic volunteer Belen Zanzuki from Argentina. She is a student, doing  her masters in Global Affairs taking the major subject as Sustainable Development in the United States. She is here in
Nepal for a month with the intent of doing a summer internship, as part of her Master program. Belen will be conducting her studies on promoting self recovery after natural disasters in Nepal and India. She is going to work in Kathmandu,
Gorkha and Okhaldhunga in Nepal.

Why decide to learn Nepali language?

She has been taking Nepali language classes for a week with our language trainer, Shakti. She is taking language class for 4 hours per day. Belen says; ‘‘I thought it was a good idea to learn some Nepali language and not only rely on the translator but also be able to sympathize with people. Additionally, I’ve never been to Asia at all so I wanted to learn and understand the culture before starting to work.” Beside language classes she has been to the Bhaktapur Durbar Square and Boudhanth stupa.

Belen her experience with Nepali Language and Culture Training

‘I feel like it’s really different to mine, but interesting. Nepali people are truly nice and friendly. The structure of the Nepali sentences is really different to Spanish and English, so it’s completely new and it’s hard to get used to it and change the way of thinking! And of course the words are also totally different. But it really is a lot of fun to learn a new language!  

Social Times

Besides learning about the language and culture Belen also stayed at a homestay and family house with other volunteers. Together they would hang out and have fun together. They would go for hikes, visit the tourist area or make Nepali food together.
