Summary

Volunteer in Nepal

Nepal is famed for its stunning landscapes and vast mountains, including some of the tallest in the world! But it’s so much more than that. Sandwiched between China and India, Nepal is at a crossroads of cultures and religions. Over 50 festivals are year are held in this enchanting country that you will be calling home for 5, 7 or 10 weeks. 
Despite this, Nepal is the second poorest country in Asia, and many of the population lack access to basic resources. This was worsened after the 2015 earthquake which devastated rural communities. These factors heighten the need for your help in the country.

What will I be doing?

A Raleigh expedition is a unique volunteering opportunity for 17 to 24 year olds. On a Raleigh expedition in Nepal, you will work on community projects and an exhilarating adventure trek.

Community: You will be working in rural communities devastated by the 2015 earthquake. You and your team will be working on a water and sanitation project. This could involve rebuilding infrastructure or talking to people about important sanitation issues.  

Adventure: Experience the ultimate adventure trek! For 19 days, you and your team will be trekking up to 12km a day, camping out every night and learning about the communities you pass by. You will be camping in the foothills of the Himalayas – some of the most exciting mountain ranges in the world. Everyone will get the opportunity to lead the group for the day developing your teamwork and leadership skills.

Why Raleigh?
On expedition you’ll make friends from around the world and develop skills for life. Raleigh International is a sustainable development charity with over 30 years’ experience. You’ll be joining a community of over 40,000 people who have volunteered with us before so you can be sure you’ll be in safe hands.
