The IVHQ local team was helpful in every way! I was placed with a lovely host family who made my stay in Kathmandu 10 times better and I really had a blast getting to know them. I also really loved the food, especially the Momo's! My volunteering experience was phenomenal - getting to know the women at the school and seeing their commitment to learning new things and achieving good grades was a learning experience in itself for me. I can say with confidence that I grew as a person during my time there. I also got to see Nepal's beauty in my free time and got to visit a lot of beautiful temples as well! Thamel is a heaven for shoppers, and Pokhara's scenery is a must-see. I highly recommend this program for anyone who wants to immerse themselves in a new culture.
