A great experience!

The staff we're great at preparing us at orientation and introducing Nepal and Nepali culture. My host family was the family that ran the orphanage, which was great because I really became close with the kids, but also stressful because I never really got much of a break. My day began early with singing and praying with the children and then after they went to school, I would either take a nap, email my family, or watch a nepali movie with my host brother. After I finished volunteering for four weeks, I wanted to do some further travelling around Nepal and IVHQ helped me organize all of that.

Three Months in Nepal

I knew after high school, I wasn't ready to do more school just yet. I knew I wanted to travel, I knew I was broke, and I knew I wanted to do something meaningful with my time.
I found IVHQ through the power of Google, and after much review searching and price checking, I decided to sign up and go with it. I did three months in Nepal.
IVHQ was very thorough in addressing any and all questions or concerns I had, and they send a huge (I mean that) pamphlet on anything you could need to know about placements, expectations, and culture information.
When you get there you're set up with Hope and Home. You get a brief language and culture class, sight seeing in Kathmandu, and to connect with the other volunteers.
I spent one month in Kathmandu, and two in Pokhara, and I can honestly say in both areas I had the time of my life. The children were amazing, the location was amazing, and there is always a contact should you need something or have questions along the way. Periodically they checked up on us to make sure we were alright, settling well, and to answer questions. We did a couple trips to other places around the country, and they helped book bus tickets and tell you what's around. After it was all done, I did not want to go home, and would definitely do it again.
