Review

The program in Nepal is one that needs much more work. The staff cut corners. They didn't have a staff member pick me up because it was a Saturday. A random person who was "affiliated" with the program picked me and scammed me in the process. The staff weren't able to do anything about it. At the very least they could fire this person. They didn't give me a house tour or orientation because they figured the other volunteers would. The orientation they did gave us was information I learned by going online. There's no concern for your safety or well-being. They kept trying to convince me to take trips to Pokhara when I only had 2 weeks in Kathmandu. Probably so they wouldn't have to care about volunteers. Go somewhere else and I guarantee you'll have a better experience.

Would you recommend this program?
No, I would not
