This three-month programme is an exciting opportunity to live and work closely with the children in our Childcare Homes. The role of the volunteer is that of a mentor or big brother/sister to the children. Volunteers help to nurture and develop the children as well as assisting with day-‐to-‐day activities in the childcare homes. This includes playing games, organising activities, helping with homework and walking the children to and from school.
**-We are not a volunteer agency, we are a charity that accepts volunteers. The contribution we ask volunteers to raise covers their accommodation and food with the remaining amount going towards the direct care of our kids within our projects-**

Asking volunteers to fund raise before coming on the programme has many benefits for the overall organisation:
-Raises enough money to care for one child for one year
-Covers the cost of the volunteer programme
-Raises awareness of the situation and needs in Nepal
-Raises Umbrella's network of supporters
-We feel that the programme should not cost the volunteer, they are giving their valuable time.
Please see the fund raising page for further information on fund raising and ideas to make fundraising easy.
