Camp Nuan ( Give Greenlandic Children a Great Summ
Description: The Danish NGO Association for Greenlandic Children has been making projects for children and youth in Greenland since 1924. More informatio about that on www.fgb.dk (only in Danish). We have been doing work camps every summer since 2014.Association Greenland Children is cooperating with the local School in the town of Nanortalik.Nanortalik is a small town located on the west cost of Greenland with 1236 inhabitants. 298 of these are children at the age of 6 to 18 years. Despite of the size of the town, Nanortalik is in many ways a well-equipped town with two super markets store, a school, a kinder garden, a church etc. However, in many ways Nanortalik is also a very remote place. In 2019 you can only get to Nanortalik by boat or helicopter. It is quite expensive to go to Nanortalik. The prize on air tickets also means that tourists rarely visit Nanortalik. Therefore, the municipality of Nanortalik gets no worldly inspiration, and children are bored and under-stimulated.
Type of Work: Association for Greenlandic Children wants Camp Nuan to give the children of Nanortalik the best summer ever. The activities will take place five days a week 12.00-17.00, and will fall into these categories:-Music-Dance-Singing-Games-Sports-ExcursionsThe volunteers will decide which activities to offer during the camp. We will invite the entire population to a social event every saturday. This could be a night of music and dancing, teaching each other to play an instrument, cooking food from your home country, movie night etc.
Accommodation: Sleeping facilities:The Association for Greenlandic Children ensures that you will get a place to stay. We expect you to stay in a shared-bedroom with another volunteer of the same sex. Telephone coverage might be scarcely, and you might not be able to use the internet more than once a week for a very short time.Kitchen bathroom facilities: All food will have to be transported by ship. Therefor you should be able to adapt to these local conditions or bring a small stock of goods yourself. It can be difficult to be vegetarian or vegan, since many meals in Greenland is based on meat and fish. Therefore you will have to bring some stuff yourself, if you need a special diet.We will make cooking and cleaning teams. The group is responsible for shopping, cooking, cleaning etc. which is also going to take up some of your time every day. So you should expect long days.
Requirements: You also need to send a copy of your travel insurance. A motivational letter and a copy of your clean criminal record is required.In the motivational letter, please bear in mind that we value creative skills a lot on this camp. You are asked to answer as specific as possible to following questions:1.What are your creative skills?2.What kind of sport activities can you be a part of/lead?4.What can you offer to the children?5.How can you contribute to the volunteer team?
Approximate Location: The nature in Greenland is in general amazing. In Nanortalik the area is lush and Green, and the weather should be sunny and nice. You can hike, go boat riding etc. in your leisure time.Hiking in the fells and the nearby glaciers is amazing and a unique experience. You can decide to organize a weekly leisure activity going hiking, fishing etc. on Sundays, which is your weekly day off.Hopefully the gym will be accessible to us around the clock. It will also be possible to play football or other sports with the community.
