Cross-cultural  Awareness  Volunteer  Programme

The Cairn Euro-Asian Cross-cultural  Awareness  Volunteer  Programme  has a genuine cross-cultural  immersion learning and research experience as its main goalAs an innovative initiative in Euro-Asia university and High Education Institutions (HEIs)  linkages, this platform  is widely regarded as timely and appropriate, provided that key element of its strategy be refocused as much on the future of sustainable and relevant high education exchange niches, than addressing Asian LDCs pressing priorities and bringing more awareness on Nepal dramatic current issues. This innovative programme is accordingly the only one of its kind, which links  European researchers with strategic sites selected in the Himalayan region and places them accordingly at grassroots in a most favourable position to assess the prospectives of Asia. While on the one hand, it addresses the future relations of Europe with Asia LDCs emerging economies and the result of imported development policies, Cairn also seeks for innovative, beneficial and ethical personal development avenues within the rich traditional, philosophical and cultural heritage of the Himalayas, which as tools in terms of attitude, knowledge and decision-making process may lead to better understanding, mutual respect and collaboration.

With activities being organized under the legal umbrella of registered local HEIs and non-profit  organizations (NGOs), such as the St-Xavier Campus(SXC), St-Xavier's Social Services Center

(SXSSC), Nepal Institute for Health Science (NIHS), RECID (TU/IOM), KUNPHEN Tibetan Medical Center, KAILASH Tibetan Medical Center (Amchi Jampa), and/or other selected  intervenors and community support groups, Cairn offers a unique choice of true experiential and professional opportunities for thesis researchers, postgraduate students, professionals and/or international volunteers, including the possibility to enjoy the amazing beauty of the Himalayan region nature, rich culture and real involvement with people in daily life.

Given that this programme is fundamentally about creating and expanding new and sustainable structural opportunities for students, researchers and trainees to share and upgraded their knowledge, attitude and awarenness, it will remain flexible and based upon students projects,  within a Menu of Open Learning ECTS/ECDL Options. While the present set of priorities range from ‘Human Resource Development’ (HRD), ‘e-Marketing Online Curriculum Development’ and other technical market-driven categorisations,  emphasis is being brought to cover areas being: Social/Health Anthropology, Clinical Anthropology, Psychotherapy, Ethnomedicine, Drug Abuse Counselling Training, Tsa-rLung Tibetan Medicine Energotherapy, Tantras, Philosophy, Languages, Arts & Humanities, Investigation Journalism and other more precise topics which may be developed without limitations by students or trainees in order to address their objectives.

Responding to the needs of future relations between Europe and Asia, Cairn Erasmus will seek,  encourage and support Projects that reflect the urgent need for more awareness on LDCs priorities. For doing so, it has taken steps since several years to gather a core of respected/experienced EU and Asian scholars and interveners, who all are involved on a daily basis in universities and NGOs services in/with least developed Asian countries (LDC) and who bring the much needed constructive but critical appraisal tools and resources for an effective cooperation. While focusing on the evaluation of the past for fostering the future, Cairn original approach is in the two-fold nature of its Curriculum Options studying as much the European and Asian spiritual heritage values, than personality or modern e-technology. 

Following  the recent European Commission  decisions, the new Erasmus Mundus programme
partnerships will be developed to strengthen European/Asian co-operation and international links in higher education by supporting high-quality  European/Asian   Joint-curriculum Masters Courses, enabling students and visiting scholars to engage in postgraduate study 
at European universities, as well as by encouraging the outgoing mobility of European students and scholars towards third Asian countries.

The CAIRN new scheme will proceed using both Cultural Immersion (Tour&Study) in selected strategic sites in Asia, as well as the usual combination of online courses, lectures, seminars, group work and practical fieldwork, including a dissertation. Students will be continuously assessed by tutors online on the basis of their essays, report writing and presentation of portfolios. There are no examinations for this programme, as the final aim is based on personalized experiential and tailored project which fulfilment will require genuine and continuous efforts on the ground...
 



 

 
Strategic  Asian Target-site(s)  Location

Situated in the strategic site of Boddhnath Stupa ( KTM Valley Nepal), itself a crossroad and 
a renown pilgrimage powerplace, Cairn Consortium is at the core of the Himalayan region outstanding beauty, as well as immerged into local religious, cultural, commercial and (post-) development issues. As a Regional HEIs/NGOs Network, Cairn also has other selected partners located in North India (Sarnath, Varanasi, Delhi and Tsopema HP), Tibet - TAR (Nyalam, Lhasa, Kham) and China (Shanghai), Thailand, Burma (Myanmar) and Bali...

From their learning, seeing, talking, listening, practicing, experiencing, travelling and discussing – Cairn programme participants will emerge from their stay with a different view of Asia, of their home country and also perhaps of themselves.  For some, this will have been their first encounter with Nepalese, Tibetans or Chinese, and they will return home with much to ponder. Perhaps for some others the greatest reward will have been the friendships established with other participants, and with the local people and youth they got to know.  Regardless of the respective backgrounds, Cairn will have been a meeting place for some of the brightest and most interesting students and will be remembered and valued for the rest of their lives.



 

CAIRN  Innovative  Pedagogy


(Tentative Itinerary & Process)

During 28 days minimum and to upto 4-5 months maximum, motivated high school students or researchers being gathered from various parts of Canada, UK, the United States and Europe, will come to Bodhanath Stupa - KTM to live, study, practices and travel together in the whole of the Himalayan range, exploring a very different culture and lifestyle, and a very different perceptions of people and themselves.  They will experience both the traditions and changes that make the Stupa of Bodhanath so distinctive and so important for being able to grasp and understand insights of the present things, and things to come, in a variety of ways enabling them to understand what they see. 

Participants will choose from a wide variety of online courses, or bring a personal research theme, allowing them to gain an understanding of some of the key concepts, background and methodology of some of the controversial topics that are at the forefront of the changes sweeping through Nepal, Tibet, China and India. From the meeting of these prerequisite with their experiential, they will be in position to appreciate the deep traditions and history that underlie everything that happens in the Himalayan region and around. 

Students and researchers will work with qualified NGOs experts, academic tutors of repute and the young local generation to undertake different field studies and investigate for themselves the key issues of their projects. Coaching, supervision and daily briefings, sometimes discussed in classes is an important aspect of the quality of experiential. Through extensive opportunities they will meet and talk with a wide range of people, from lamas, artists, businessmen, NGOs or HEIs officials, to ordinary shopkeepers, youth and workers, by visiting villages, urban homes, SMEs small enterprise workplaces, local NGOs, monasteries, temples, schools, they will compare what they learn in class with what they experience themselves. This combination of high-level academic instruction with project-based investigative learning, discussions and debates, and online broadband interaction with database online is what will make Cairn programme a unique opportunity, in a unique place.

Face to face language tutorials in Nepalese, Indi, Tibetan and/or Chinese are made available as options for those who seek the abilities which will allow them to share, understand, develop, or hone their skills in close contact with local people.

Demolition of the old and construction of the new are everywhere, including the effects of the ongoing Maoists insurgency. This is the time to register what Nepalese, Tibetan and Chinese people are feeling, living through and hoping for now.  Students will forever be referring to this experience by saying, "When I studied there, this is what Nepal was like…."
 

 

 

Cairn  International  Studies

Cairn  International  Studies will improve European students' ability to work in an increasingly globalized environment in Nepal and surrounding Asia. The goal is to prepare European students and trainees for focused international tasks, promote interactive and communicative skills and encourage an open and receptive attitude towards the Himalayan region ethnic cultures. Cairn Euro-Asian Network will further increase opportunities for internships, field-research and online studies within an international dimension and with selected international experts cooperation. 

Cairn Cross-Cultural Awareness program stresses that for an Euro-Asian cross-cultural training to be effective as an enhancement for an international development organization, it must deal with several complexities in the learning process, including that of providing flexible options for genuine Projects-based Cultural Immersion. Just providing information, or some online courses, is not an effective approach for the future Euro-Asian relations, beyond that of a basic introductory level. 

Cairn believes that such training should be an interactive intercultural process, through the use of flexible training modules being a menu of Cultural Immersion Options organized in strategic target-sites, where the behavioral situation, case studies, scenarios, critical incidents, catharsis and crisis resolution, will bring to participants and beneficiaries focused and longterm results. 
 

 

Cairn is also launching a stepwise development of a Mixed Mode Postgraduates and Masters ECDL/ECTS Certification centered around disciplines initiated from the EU partners units and linked with the pressing issues of Nepal/Asian LDCs Development Management. This unique mode of study allows students the flexibility to study through a combination of residential home courses in the EU, field-study in Asia, group sessions and flexible distance learning.  The recommended pattern of study starting in 2004/2005 is currently under-design, for the following options.

Joint- Postgraduate,  Masters  &  Doctorate  Studies

 
Cairn offers a variety of customizable training programs and workshops at the Postgraduate, Masters and Doctorate Studies levels. Customized Cultural Immersion field-research and/or training programs blend training modules with specific personal project objectives. This allows greater flexibility in tailoring content, defining the research methodology, supervision, delivery format, selecting experts, trainers and consultants, provide group-focused feedback, and proceed within a consensual evaluation and participative monitoring format. 

SXC/CAIRN (Nepal) wants to play an active and constructive role in the stepwise development of the Erasmus Mundus envisioned international learning environment of joint- degrees, so as to bring benefits to local students and scholars for accessing EU curriculum options, as much as for European students or researchers to easily access core Asian strategic issues. As a joint-study programme, it will require students to study in different countries and universities with professors and peers from widely varying sites, academic and cultural traditions. Joint programmes will place students in situations which require flexibility, openness to diversity, and creative approaches to both learning and personal relationship. Additionally, it will provide students with the opportunity to improve their language skills and their understanding of an entirely different cultural environment. Generally, postgraduates have found that employers are favourable to the international experience offered by joint degrees and recommend the experience to students interested in such challenging and creative degrees.

Volunteer & Internship  Placement  Options

As the majority of Cairn volunteer program activities will be situated within and around Kathmandu (KTM) valley, or its immediate surrounding hill side villages, campus, NGOs or monasteries, the Cairn programme participants will be able to easily contribute towards the benefit of their host Nepalese community, bringing the core richness of exchanges and insights in educational or social/health intervention services, and enjoying for themselves the unique chances of encounters, teachings, rituals, trekking, study within their topical exploration. Cairn has been working in KTM valley since 1988, mostly with local NGOs, monasteries and international organizations (INGOS), including the SXC and SXSSC.

Institutional  Requirements

 

Because the offered Joint- Postgraduate/Masters Courses must already in existence and must be fully operational at the time of a European university Consortium application to the Erasmus Mundus programme, Cairn Consortium already implements most of the options listed above as a self-sustainable joint-venture based on students personal Cultural Immersion project requests, thus fulfilling the necessary minimum preparatory activities.

A EC-/Erasmus Mundus Programme Joint-Masters Course must consist of an integrated study programme. All of these features must be fulfilled at the time of application and described in the application in technical detail. As regards the delivery of a double/multiple or joint degree, the Commission accepts an exception to this rule for the 2004 and 2005 selection rounds only: if a consortium cannot guarantee the awarding of a double/multiple or joint degree at the time of application, it has to add a declaration that it is able to do so at the time of selection (early September 2004 for the Call for Proposals relating to the academic year 2004/2005; January 2005 for the Call for Proposals relating to the academic year 2005/2006). This declaration will be checked against its truthfulness before taking a selection decision. In case of non-fulfilment of this criterion the application will be rejected.

Most of those institutional requirements thus reside in the ability and stamina of concerned European partners to abide in due time to the prior-conditions presented in the EC-Guidelines.

Cairn/SXC Consortium HQ in KTM/Nepal can only serve the purpose of striving to become a suitable Asian/LDC platform, as required for the Asian part from the EC- Guidelines.

The following TABLE is indicative of the potential options being already operational.

Looking for bright students/researchers...!

Cairn  Cross-cultural Awareness  Network

Cairn seeks to gather a network of motivated, strong and informed researchers or students, who are curious about the Western world future relations with the geo-political giants being India and China, and therefore are eager to discover from experiential in this privileged strategic Himalayan  powerplace, what are the current background and realities of today's exchanges; what are the supporting myths of social control; what are the underlying ethnic, economic, political and religious systems in place or under transformation; and finally more simply, what is true about the Tibetan, Nepal, India and China issues as perceived when situated at the core of the Himalayan migration, in the year 2004. 

Cairn looks for interesting and interested Asian, EU and American postgraduate researchers, NGO professionals and/or students, who seek a fundamental re-appraisal of their skills, knowledge and attitude, when placed in a challenging capacity building process helpful to the target communities and often also in a context of quite unknown efficacy, so as to discover, build and demonstrate their potentials to be future leaders in Euro / America - Asian relations. 

Because, more often than not, core cultural or attitudinal mis-representations in both Europe and America plague the building up of any long-term relationship to be grounded on ethics and mutual confidence,  the need for more awareness and understanding of such issues as: Tibetan Dharma practices, Nepal current (post-) Development- Aid disaster (Maoists Insurgency), assessment of actual Chinese or India economic influence (the increasing migration of youth and workers to India and China, or Arabian countries), and/or the INGOs/Donors/media roles and prognostics for the Maoist Insurgency, being only a few among many other issues, will bring to the participants some  spectacular surprises, from the first Glimpses of Real Life around Bodhnath Stupa, up to the long term better knowledge of people, policies, and the hermeneutics and practices of the Himalayan people and resonance within themselves. 

Cairn programme is neither a typical Dharma monasteries enrolment hidden agenda, nor a typical anthropology research project layout, nor a language-based program, nor is it a cosy trek in and around the Himalaya or Tibet. It is first a challenging Cultural Immersion Research process where students and researchers are faced with many contradicting facets, such as : the need for self-discipline while seeking inspiration, how to conduct field-study in a cahotic context while gathering relevant documentation, how to push their project to fruition with often limited resources, meet the needs and kindness of people in a country in civil war and at the same time remain focused, and finally see the results brought by their own actions...

Participants will enjoy interactions with the many people they will meet, share and work with. They have full advantage of the opportunities that genuine cultural immersion programs may provide.  Initiative, awareness, ethics and drive are important characteristics for successful projects. 
 

Beyond these academic and motivational requirements, participants will need to have the ability to work from their own initiative within a diversified cultural context and within target-communities, where fruitful relations are based on mutual trust and respect.  Honesty, adaptability, openness, and tolerance are essential qualities. 

Cairn organizes this programme in order to facilitate the access, for EU- and American researchers, development professionals and postgraduate students, to strategic
Euro-Asia  Transcultural  Counselling Field- Research & Courses Options 
in Nepal, India, Tibet/TAR China and S-Asia.

Options include training resources in Post- Development Policies, Rehabilitation, Crisis Prevention and Remediation, Vocational, Career and/or Educational Counselling, Education online, Investigation Journalism or simple Volunteer projects, as well as more indepth training experiential in healing and psychotherapy in Tibetan Traditional Medicine Psychology (Tsa-rLung Healing). These can be linked easily to the participants academic background within disciplines such as : Clinical Anthropology, Health Anthropology, Social/Health Education, Applied Psychology to Counselling, Ethno-medicine, Phenomenology, Transpersonal (Holistic) Psychotherapy, as well as Applied Psychology to HRD and Organization Management.

A short list of high quality online training resources and highly qualified practitioners has been selected in situ, for designing, delivering, coaching and facilitating the inputs at the various professional levels required for ECTS/ECDL credits in professional training research certification.
