I volunteered in an orphanage called OCCED in Kathmandu, Nepal, and stayed with a host family for two weeks. I couldn't help falling in love with the cute children and my lovely host family. They gave me a very unforgettable experience and had a great impact on my life and value. Here is a typical day for me in Nepal:

07:00 Get up
08:00 Breakfast with my host family
09:00 Go to nearby supermarkets to buy toys or snacks for children (not required, just I wanted the children to be happier)
10:00 Start work in the orphanage
Work included: teaching, playing with smaller children, chatting with older children, having lunch with the children and the orphanage staff
17:00 Leave the orphanage
After work, normally I went back to my host family, but sometimes I went to Thamel (the main shopping area) to explore some nice restaurants
19:00 Dinner with my host family
After dinner, I would chat with my host family, showing each other photos, or watch TV with them (when there was electricity)
21:00 Go to bed

Apparently two weeks was not long enough for me to spend with the cute and smart children. I wish I could have stayed longer!

I would definitely recommend this program to my friends :)

Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
