Review

I volunteered through this program to teach English as a second language for three months in Shikha, a small village in Nepal. It was a very rewarding experience. The students are eager to learn. Although sometimes it can be a challenge to teach English to a bunch of rambunctious grade school students (some student traits are universal), the results are gratifying. The experience also allowed me to immerse myself in the Nepalese culture, and spend some time trekking in the Himalayas.
HELP is an excellent organization. Its goals are clearly stated. There is not a big superfluous infrastructure. I felt that almost all of the time and money I donated went toward its program goals. HELP is an organization that I can trust. Although I did not need much logistical support, I felt that HELP would have provided such support if I had needed it. They did provide very good preparation for my trip there. HELP is the real deal.

Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
