Best known as the home to the tallest mountain in the world, Nepal is beyond Mount Everest and the Himalayan Mountains. Nepal is a land of Sherpas, stupas, yaks, and of course, the best trekking in the world. Regardless of its beauty, Nepal remains one of the poorest nations in South Asia and volunteers are always needed in the serene nation.
Teach English: Unfortunately, most children living in Nepalese villages do not have access to a proper education. Due to tourism being such a large industry in Nepal, it is important for the Nepalese to learn English to improve their job prospects. As an English teacher, you will teach English and other subjects to Nepalese children who otherwise would not have an opportunity to learn.
Orphanage Work: Nepal is no different from other poor nations in that it unfortunately has many children who are orphans. As a volunteer in an orphanage, you have an opportunity to provide support for the administration as well as interact extensively with children by organizing activities for them and taking care of them.
Medical Work: Being a developing country, Nepal doesn't have adequate medical facilities for its residents. Thus, there is a serious need for medical volunteers. As a medical volunteer, you will most likely be working at a rural healthcare clinic, assisting doctors and helping take care of patients.
As a volunteer in Nepal, it is recommended that you get certain vaccinations before you leave for your trip. These are Hepatitis A & B, Japanese encephalitis, and Rabies. For more info visit MD Travel Health.
