  We are very proud of this achievement which recognizes our innovative approaches to implementing the community-based Bungamati Family House and Early Childhood Program, and THEN improving the local economy and empowering the community so that it can support and sustain the project!

 Introducing the "Bungamati Home Stay Project" 

 Global Family Village-Nepal and its community partner, the Bungamati Cooperative Society recently launched the HOME STAY PROJECT in partnership with the Nepal Tourism Board. The HOME STAY PROJECT is designed to bring tourism to the Bungamati area and to offer tourists an opportunity to stay overnight with a village family.

On 12 May 2012, 50 participants from the community, ­including politicians, local organizations, district representatives, teachers and members of the Cooperative, came together for an orientation program. Representatives from 14 families (mostly women) then signed on for a 7-day training session on hospitality and home stay, which covered such topics as providing­ Nepali authentic cuisine, house keeping, sanitation, health security, communication, and comfort for western tourists.

How it works.....

 GFV-Nepal and the Cooperative will:

  • Manage reservations for the Home Stays in Bungamati;
  • Follow up the services and security for the tourists; and
  • Coordinate promotion and marketing with travel and trekking agents.

For these services GFV-Nepal and the Cooperative will receive a 10 % commission towards sustaining our project in Bungamati!

We greatly appreciate your support and generosity. Please continue to remember us. Even small donations can make a big difference in the program, and ultimately for the disenfranchised children in Nepal! GlobalGiving donations will be matched on June 13th in honor of Father's Day!

Thank you so very much!

Namaste, Freema Davis and the GFV Board of Directors
