  • About

    Nestled in the Himalayas, the beautiful kingdom of Nepal can hold any visitor's attention. However, if you try to look much deeper, you will easily see that the country lacks some necessary structures, such as education, healthcare, and monetary assistance. Volunteering in this captivating place is currently very popular among young people, mostly because are attracted to the idea of seeing Mount Everest. Nepal has fascinated visitors and academics with its pure loveliness, uniqueness and the spiritual chants that come from the friaries in the deeper dominions of the Himalayas.

  • Program Types
    Environmental Conservation

    Over the past years, Nepal has witnessed an upsurge in environmental destruction. Therefore it needs more volunteers to assist in lessening the negative impact that tourism and rapid economic development have left. The glaciers and areas closer to the Everest base camp have been badly affected by such rampant growth in tourism. Applying for a program in Nepal can help spread awareness of its environmental problems, by becoming an active participant of the movement.

    Community Development

    Volunteers can help in eradicating poverty in Nepal. By volunteering in this beautiful place, you will get to see remote places, located deep in the heart of the Himalayas, where people do not have any water, electricity or basic vocational courses to find a steady source of income. Examples of community development projects include the restoration of old structures or cleaning up the local villages.

    Education/Teaching English

    Another opportunity a volunteer can explore in Nepal is teaching English language. Remote communities in Nepal lack the proper facilities to support a well-rounded education. As an overseas volunteer, one will get to teach various subjects, mainly English, to enhance the local curriculum. This will allow students make a good living in the future, by possibly acting as tour guides in the tourism industry.

    Healthcare

    Volunteers can teach subjects related to personal health in Nepal. This includes how to offer first aid, general data on healthcare, management skills and data related to diseases endemic to the region.

    Volunteering Tips

    Working with an agency is highly advisable. Ask questions about the individual program you are interested in. If you are looking for something very particular, the agency may be able to direct you towards the greatest opportunities that are available at the moment.

    By becoming a volunteer, individuals can enhance their resumes, and appear more desirable in the eyes of good employers. They can also get a tremendous list of skills and experiences that will make them better at what they do.

    Do I need to be a citizen of a specific country to volunteer? No. Every person in the world can participate in a project in Nepal.

    Is there an age requirement? Any individuals who are 18 years old and above can volunteer, provided that you are in good health.

    Will the volunteering team provide me financial support? Unfortunately, no. You will need to support yourself in your chosen volunteering program.

    Do I need vaccinations before entering Nepal? What other medications should I bring? You don't need to have immunizations. Though, it is recommended you have vaccines for Diphtheria and Tetanus, Hepatitis A and B, Japanese B Encephalitis, Polio, Rabies, Tetanus and Typhoid. If you will come from a country infected with the yellow fever, it is necessary to be vaccinated prior to entering Nepal.

    What is the climate in Nepal? The climate depends on the location. The northern part is much colder and the southern part is warmer. So if you will volunteer near the north, you should bring warm clothes.
