The main objective of the program is to make young people knowledgeable and experienced on Nepal’s rural affairs and develop leadership culture and skill of young people to lead a community, society, organization, project and initiative effectively and efficiently. The students are encouraged to work in extremely rural & remote communities, serve the community people, directly communicate and interact with the community people, observe them, learn from them and lead them as a servant leader.

They have to help the people to develop the community on sustainable way.

System of Learning:

This is not a class-room based course. It is totally a practical and field based learning program. It is about traveling in rural communities, working with the people & serving the people for learning. The students will have to go to rural communities to spend moments with rural people. A home-stay will be managed during the entire field-based study.The students will have to stay at a home of local people and have local foods served by the people. The host family will serve at least 2 meals ( a plate of rice, vegetables, curry, lentils, pickles) a day. Staying with a host family will give you cultural experiences and rural lifestyle.

The students will have to write a report by conducting a study/research on any rural developmental issues to be given by the research supervisor. A highly knowledgeable person about rural developmental issues will coordinate the field-based study as a coordinator and mentor.
