Volunteer with Children in Nepal

from £850
Duration: from 2 weeks
Countries: Nepal
Travel to the Nepali city of Pokhara and volunteer alongside an international team in a care centre or children’s home, providing educational and personal development support to children.
Summary

Volunteer with Children in Nepal

Visit traditional Hindu and Buddhist temples and embrace your adventurous side with white water rafting or mountain trekking trips in your free time.

Overview

Immerse yourself in the rich Nepalese culture amongst breathtaking Himalayan scenery and volunteer in a care centre or children’s home depending on your skills and local needs at that time. Nepalese traditions are an important part of local life that have remained largely unchanged in centuries, allowing you to fully experience life in this amazing country.

Upon your arrival into the beautiful country of Nepal, volunteers will have an orientation in the second largest city of Nepal and visit traditional Hindu and Buddhist sights. During this time, you have the chance to explore the area, live with a Nepali family, learn some basic Nepali and visit many of the local sights.

In light of the 2015 Nepal Earthquake, our project will be focused on providing disaster relief efforts to the local community. Volunteers will make an important difference to the children on the project, improving their overall development. Many of the children are from poor and difficult backgrounds but still have an extraordinary desire to learn and through the project you will provide the extra support they need.

Testimonials

“I saw some things I never even dreamed I would see and met the nicest people I have ever come across in my lifetime. The only thing I hated about the program was that it ended! Fun, enjoyment and other words like that can’t even come close to describing the time I had in Nepal!”

- Eoin Blaney, (Ireland)
