If you are driven by unique sense of purpose, believe that you can be of help to local communities with your experience and skills and are willing to travel and stay in far-away places from the comfort of your cozy home, then volunteering in Nepal might just be for you.
Nepal is a beautiful country, there is no argument about that but there is also another side to this heavenly abode, which is poverty, illiteracy, under-development and all social ills that come along with poverty. Despite that, slowly but surely, things are changing for good, dark clouds are slowly moving away and we are quite sure, sunshine will reach us one day in all their glory. It would be wonderful, if you could be part of this movement, a part of the solution with anything you can offer, from your goodwill and beautiful smile to skills that can profoundly change life of kids, adults and that of elderly people.
You will be living in one of our community, either in comfort of hostel or via homestay program with one of your hosts during your stay. It seems that homestay is more popular as not only it is more budget friendly but it also provides you an ample opportunity to not just observe but live, breathe and be part of Nepalese way of life. This cultural contrast – eating local foods like daal, bhaat and momo; waking up listening to early morning temple chants while morning sun rises from picturesque snow-capped mountains; waving hello and namaste to people who look at you curiously but with fondness, warmth and affection; while you are on your mission is going to an experience that will nourish not only the mind but your soul. Yes, a big cultural adjustment is to be expected but as someone wise said, “we only grow, outside of our comfort zone”.
There are various volunteering options, which we customize as per your interest, experience and skill-set. We will pair you with relevant organizations that aligns with your sense of purpose and help you with finding a program that aligns with your value so that you will be appreciated and supported for being part of it.
