Training of trainers of NBF’s volunteer staff in Hip Hop


To teach both the skills and the principles of Hip Hop to the youth involved in NBF.
Today’s youth and children of Nepal were either born or grew up as adolescents during the ten-year violent conflict that affected the country from 1996 to 2006. Following this conflict, the lack of opportunities or daring to dream are factors that contribute to frustration, leading to attraction to drug abuse and violence among the youth and children.
The 10 year civil war has taught the youngsters that violence is the way to get what you want, even if it means hurting someone else to fulfill ones’ wishes. Hip Hop attracts youngsters with its 4 elements (DJ, MC, Breakdancing, and graffiti culminating in HipHop Theatre) and at the same time gives the message that the 4 Principles of Love, Peace, Unity, and Fun are the right attitude.
Therefore NBF wants to give the youth international professional Hip Hop figures who believe in the 4 Principles as role models.
Hence this mission could be beneficial if Planete Urgence could help in bringing in the volunteers.

Intervention attendue du volontaire

The 4 Principles of Hip Hop (LOVE, PEACE, UNITY AND FUN) and the 4 Elements of Hip Hop (DJ, MC, Breakdancing and graffiti culminating in HipHop Theatre) are a powerful combination for attracting youth to a constructive and fun way to express their feelings about their own situation, their community and society.

It is also popular amongst Nepali youth. However, misconstrued ideas and lack of knowledge about the principles of Hip Hop need to be removed. Nepal’s Hip Hop culture is still coming of age and NBF needs Hip Hop artists who are committed and promote these 4 principles through the 4 elements, while Break Dancers with strong background and knowledge in Hip Hop culture is not available in Nepal.
NBF is, therefore, looking for Hip Hop artists within particular skills in break dancing, good knowledge, and commitment to the 4 Principles and ability to teach young people both the skills and the principles of Hip Hop.
NBF itself cannot afford to access expert profiles as sent by Planète Urgence, and such volunteers will help NBF provide professional services to the youth, which will encourage them to take their message seriously.

The intervention of the volunteer should enable youth members of NBF to have a clear idea about the 4 Principles and 4 elements of Hip Hop. They will particularly learn skills or enhance existing skills in break dancing that will make them more professional.

Expected results
- For participants:
The consequences and changes that NBF expects from the mission are to have a clear knowledge of the 4 Principles and elements of Hip- hop, understand the concept and how to serve and raise awareness in the community using this knowledge.
The changes after the mission would be to build up capacities in their personal life as well as for the organization, build up confidence and use the knowledge in a better and a useful way.

- For the organization:
Having a clear concept of the above mentioned i.e. when the participants have a good knowledge of say Breaking or MCeeing.
It would be better for the organizations because participants participating in this mission will be able to teach and spread the 4 Principles and 4 elements of Hip-hop to other students in the organization and outside.


Profile of the volunteer: an experienced Hip Hop artist, with advanced skills in the element of Break Dancing, but also knowledgeable of the other elements and committed to the 4 Principles of Hip Hop (LOVE, PEACE, UNITY AND FUN).

The volunteer will work during the mission from the accommodation site to the training site, which is very near. The mission will take place all the day - 5 days a week for 2 weeks with an average of about 6h of activities per day (interaction with the youth, exchanges/preparation, with NBF staff management).

Profil des bénéficiaires

NBF has two target groups:
1. B Boys/B Girls who are NBF members and have been doing break dancing and also teaching in some cases.
2. Students who are learning break dancing at different levels.

Around 20 persons will take part in this mission out of which around 8 are Girls. Their age range is from 13 years to 25 years. They have a fairly good knowledge of written and spoken English. They are college and school students and youth who are working. They have never been trained in Hip Hop, they learnt on their own.
Participants hope :
- to gain improved break dancing skills,
- to strengthened with strong and clear knowledge about Hip Hop culture and its principles,
- to make them professionals.
This will help them gain respect from mainstream society.

Nepal Break Dance Foundation


Nepal Break Dance Foundation is a Nepali non profit enterprise created in 2008 by Krisada Kanchanawat, the actual director, in order to distract youth away from drug abuse and violence, through involvement in various aspects of entertainment sector such as Hip Hop and youth focused film production.

The volatile security situation in the Terai region (south of Nepal), the unstable political situation (with the dissolution of the constituent assembly, and the lack of a constitution), contribute to the rise in opium cultivation. The growing Indian market via the open border with Nepal has increased demand for opium. The Government report states that on a population of 30 millions of habitants, approximately 80,000 Nepalese are addicted to drugs.
In order to fight against that, NBF has held a strong policy of all its events promoting Say No to Drugs and Violence and other social issues.

The main objectives of the project were to prevent youth from drug abuse and violence through skill training and employment generation, to involve youth in social issues through means that are interesting to them. And establish NBF as a production house covering both entertainment program and technical production units.

Nepal Break dance Foundation is in the process of institutionalising the annual Himalayan International B Boying/B Girling Jatra (in Nepali Jatra means festival; and “B Boy/B Girl” is the short term for break dancing) promoting a specific social issue such as – Say No to Drugs and Violence. NBF has managed to organise the Jatra for two years consecutively 2010 and 2011. In 2010 three Thai B Boys were invited for the Jatra, and in 2011, the Jatra hosted 3 French B Girls.

NBF raised funds with support of Rotary Club of Mount Everest since two years..
The aim from the beginning was to make the studio, where there are working, financially independent by making it a socio-enterprise by charging training fee for those who could afford it and by offering scholarships for the marginalised or especially committed and talented.
Today NBF has taken the next step – towards establishing a film production unit which will produce youth focused entertainment programs. Youth are being trained in technical skills such as cameraman, light man and script writer. The entertainment part has already gone ahead with the B Boy/B Girl performances which also has social issues such as gender based violence.

Different activities could be learned and done by B boy/girl as providing skills training in entertainment sector (Hip Hop elements: B Boy/B Girl dancing; beat boxing; rapping, graffiti and hip hop theatre (choreography, music). Providing skills training in technical production such as: camera operation, script writing, lighting, logistics and editing

NBF plans upcoming activities:
Training by professionals: film Production with focus on youth entertainment; elements out of Hip Hop : break dancing and theatre.

From now around 200 people benefited to their actions: the B Boy / B Girl, the crew members, the youth who can have trainees in hip hop and others activities. This is a small framework with 4 employees, who are the B boys instructors. And with 4 persons who work on full voluntary basis and are responsible for running the organisation; (director, marketing, linkage and networking, choreographer & B Girl instructor.

In Nepal caste and ethnicity are a big issue. In NBF youth and children come from all caste and ethnic groups. What becomes the most important is that they are able to practice and improve their skills in dancing. Their crews are not based on caste but on their skills and commitment to learning the skills of B Boying/B Girling. As gender is also an issue in Nepal and girls are not “supposed” to do B Girling, NBF declared 2012 a year of scholarship for all girls wanting to learn B Girling. This has increased the number of girls attending from 10 to 50. The youth and children are coming from all over Nepal. Some of them came to study in Kathmandu; some are looking for a job.

The age group range of youth and children in NBF is from 8 to 25 years. The age range 15 to 25 has been marked as high risk group vulnerable to drug abuse, HIV&AIDS and violence. This is the reason that NBF does not make its target group exclusive to only economically marginalize.

Le financement d’une mission

Pourquoi payer pour partir en mission ?

Planète Urgence a fait le choix de s’associer à de petites structures, qui n’ont pas les moyens de rémunérer leurs volontaires mais qui ont un réel besoin d’appui et prend donc le parti de soutenir des associations aux moyens très limités.  En savoir plus.


Outre l’organisation logistique, le don mission permet la mise en place d’un réel processus de montage de projet avec le partenaire local. Notre équipe s’assure ainsi du réel impact des missions pour les communautés. Découvrez ce que comprend les frais d’une mission.


Par ailleurs, il n’existe pas de financements publics ou institutionnels pour encourager le développement du volontariat international de courte durée sur le thème de la formation professionnelle ou du partage de compétences. C’est pourquoi Planète Urgence demande aux entreprises dans le cadre du Congé Solidaire® et aux volontaires pour les Missions Solidaires de participer aux frais de la mission.


Notre Principe de solidarité

Le don mission ne correspond pas au montant réel du coût de la mission choisie par le volontaire mais a été calculé sur la base du coût moyen de nos missions. Nous avons fait ce choix pour ne pas favoriser certaines missions moins coûteuses que d’autres et permettre ainsi à tous nos partenaires de recevoir de manière équitable des volontaires intéressés par leurs actions.


Sur le même principe, le financement des offres de volontariat repose lui aussi sur ce concept solidaire : pour une même mission de 2 semaines, le don mission du Congé Solidaire® est plus élevé que celui d’une Mission Solidaire. Le coût des missions résulte en effet d’un équilibre entre ces deux sources de financement permettant ainsi aux personnes ne bénéficiant pas du soutien de leur employeur de partir en mission.


Le don ne comprend pas :
– le billet d’avion (dans le cadre d’un Congé Solidaire®, certains employeurs peuvent assumer également le coût)
– les vaccins éventuels,
– le visa éventuel

Tout comme le don mission, ces frais peuvent donner lieu à une défiscalisation.

Les dons de missions, défiscalisable à 66%

Tous les dons de missions ouvrent droit 66% de défiscalisation. Les dons sont déduits du montant de l’impôt sur le revenu à hauteur de 66% pour les particuliers. Ainsi, par exemple, un don de 1 850 € après défiscalisation, reviendra à 629 € pour un particulier. . Les frais entourant la mission sont aussi éligibles à la défiscalisation. En savoir plus
