I am traveling since 11 month around the world and although Nepal was not on my bucket list in the beginning I immediately fell in love with this colorful, vibrant country and its lovely people.
After some trekking in the himalayan i had the great opportunity to work as a volunteer in the Paropakar Girls Orphanage in Kathmandu. Volunteering solutions helped me with the placement and made me feel very welcome from the first day on. They even arranged an orientation week for me. In this week i was taught some basics in Nepali language - which was very helpful - and they visited the main attractions - like Durbar Square, Boudanath Stupa, Monkey Tempel and the Pasupatinath temple with me.
The next weeks I was able to get involved in the Paropakar Girls orphanage, which houses 25 girls aged between 10 and 16. The program was a great opportunity to make a difference in the lives of these lovely children. Giving Love and attention to all of them and being able to assist the stuff/teachers in their work fulfilled me and made me happy.
Although a bit shy in the beginning the kids started trusting me very quickly and after 2 days I got hugs and kisses already.
A heartwarming experience thanks to volunteering solutions !
Saying good bye to wonderful Nepal and the lovely kids was very difficult for me, hope to come back one day !!!!
