This is an opportunity to support the work at a local orphanage in Kathmandu. Home to about 15 children, mainly girls, this residential home currently has children between 5 and 16 years old. Although the children attend school for the majority of the day, there is much help needed at this center. Volunteer work hours are split between early morning and later afternoon (approximately 730am-930am, 300pm-7:00pm) Volunteers will help getting the kids dressed, fed and ready for school. In the afternoon support with homework, teaching English, as well as introducing recreational and extracurricular activities like dance and music. The children mainly crave individual attention and focus from the volunteers. When the children are at school volunteers can assist with orphanage administrative needs, in the kitchen or gardens. Another option is to split this project with another program such as teaching or take optional Nepali language course.
Prior experience is not needed. Volunteer need to be very caring, child friendly, pro-active and patient.
- Volunteers required to pay US$100 for each month they volunteer at this program paid with the program cost.
