Having taken a gap year, I was keen to participate in a Raleigh International programme as I wanted to do something that would make a difference. This was certainly achieved throughout my time in Nepal. I spent three weeks working in a rural village where I was able to work on providing water access to local villagers and raising awareness surrounding water hygiene - this was especially rewarding as I was able to see the tangible effects our work had on village life. Not only was I able to achieve a sense of accomplishment but I was able to build a number of connections with the local people and other volunteers alike. Following my time in community, I embarked on a three week expedition through the Ruby Valley. The scenery was breathtaking and it was an experience I will never forget with people I will never forget. To anyone considering participating in a Raleigh International programme; just do it.

Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
