After putting fliers for two weeks in the local grocery stores,bus station and tea shops we finally started getting candidates interested in our interpreter training program. With the help of Bajrabarahi Healthpost as a reception for the application form we started taking candidates for the program.
We started our first day with total number of 32 candidates from different wards of Thaha municipality. Despite the distance some candidates have to walk , it wasn’t a problem for them. Our Curriculum was focused on communication skills, public speaking, public interaction and Interpreting. It was about 45 Days. 3-4 hours each Day.
It has been very good experience and a beautiful journey with these youngsters with their hunger for knowledge and will to learn communication skill and learn english.
We are so grateful to Miss Elissa Chapman who is an acupuncturist and has been working with us for three years. Her presence was very helpful for candidates to improve their english speaking skills.
We thank our senior interpreters for coming and sharing their experiences with the candidates about their journey with Suswasthya Nepal and acupuncture Relief Project which gave them confidence to move ahead.
After 45 days of complete training we choose 4 promising candidates for this year’s camp. We had to choose 10 out of 25 candidates first and out of 10 we chose 4 candidates.All our candidates were not just involved in our training,we also organized reforestation program and had fun planting trees together.
Our new interpreters for this year and little bit about themselves in their own words.
