Cooperation with the Cooperative State University of Heidenheim

Excursion to the CFO-Kinderdorf (Children-Village) in Nepal

31.03.2014 – 9.04.2014

Six students from the Cooperative State University in Heidenheim got the chance to take part in an excursion to Nepal to take a look at the CFO-Children-Village in Dhading Besi. The Excursion was led by Professor Petra Pachner, who is a teacher at the Cooperative State University of Heidenheim. The CFO-Village offers orphans and disadvantaged children a place to live, an education and a family like atmosphere. Upon arrival in the CFO-Village, the students were welcomed by Petra Pachner and she presented the detailed plans of the project. Right at this time four buffalos were being brought into the CFO-Village. The biogas plant is powered in part by goats, cows and buffalos. The next big project in the future will be a training center for carpenters, tailors and metal workers. The lot has already been purchased. Before leaving Germany the students were supposed to create projects to do with the children. The three students Tina Dittweiler, Sarah Goebel and Sarah Mayfield did some activities like dancing and playing games. Christian Erhardt, Julian Findeis and Peter Daum played football and cricket. This was a wonderful experience and a chance to get to know the kids better said Christian Erhardt. All of the students and the children from the CFO-Village enjoyed the intercultural exchange. They were also able to meet Ramesh Dhamala chairman of the CFO-Village and Dr. Olga Lasota, an Austrian pediatrician.  She is the medical head of Dhading and Kalanki which is in Kathmandu. The students had the chance to get to know the diversity of the country. Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal and has many impressive Hindu monuments such as the sacred burial site Pashupatinath and the temple complex Swayambutinath. The National Park Chitwan in the south of the country offered the students a chance to see the jungle and its wild animals. The excursion allowed the students to get to know the culture of Nepal and themselves better. The students also were able to meet with the infants in the CFO-orphan asylum. When they are older, they will probably move to Dhaging. The trip has successfully sharpened the view of the students and made them aware of the conditions and the essential needs of the inhabitants of Nepal. The professionalism of the students has greatly expanded.
