During the 2 weeks school holidays, our Camp Hope children visited different organization and respected people in order to understand where they want to lead their career in future. All the students above grade 5 visited to different chosen sectors to understand their career development in those sectors.
Some of them visited ICIMOD (International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development), Khumaltar Lalitpur and met Dr. David James Molden( Director General) of the ICIMOD Nepal.
The children also visited IDEA Nepal to get career counseling which was led by the Head of the mission, Ms. Sheri Meyerhoffer. Similarly, they went to United World Trade Centre, Tripureshwor to see the training phase of the contestants of Miss Nepal 2016 where they performed Catwalk afterwards.
This is the beginning of career orientation process to all these children because they will be getting more opportunities to visit other sectors like banks, airlines and many more.

Ms. Furba Sherpa from Sindhupalchowk is a victim of the earthquake 2015 and is one of the resident in the Camp Hope. She has been working as an intern in the ICIMOD Nepal where the children of Camp went to understand career opportunities in the non-governmental organization like ICIMOD.
Dr. Molden gave the concept of the mountain development and the ideas of how ICIMOD has been actively participating in different mountain development projects, improving the livelihood of the people living in mountain areas. This kind of field visit for our Camp Hope Children could be very helpful in understanding different issues related to the environment and sustainability and understand their sectors of career. The Dwarika’s Foundation is very grateful to Dr. Molden for giving the Camp Hope children this opportunity to Visit ICIMOD and talk to him in person.
