About

Serene, breathtaking, and captivating, volunteers in Nepal are immersed in a vibrant culture. Most famous for Mt. Everest, but brimming with hundreds of other remarkable sites, Nepal will capture your heart and soul with its generous people and customs. Nepalis are known for cooking hearty, flavorful meals and for greeting others with the traditional Namaste. While tourism is popular, Nepal remains one of the world’s poorest countries. Volunteers here have loved the impact that their time in Nepal has made on them, and vice versa, as they work with others in rural communities.

As a volunteer in Nepal, people are sought as caregivers at orphanages, teaching assistants at schools, and counselors for women and girls who have been victims of human trafficking and abuse. Because of numerous volunteer opportunities, Nepal is a great place for families to volunteer together.

Possible volunteer projects include:

- Assisting staff at an orphanage in Kathmandu with the children's basic needs
- Speaking and helping teach English at a private school
- Working at a counseling center for young women and children who have been victims of abuse, either administratively or directly with the women and children on-site (female volunteers only)
- Interning at a non-profit organization that promotes travel philanthropy, tourism, and social responsibility

Please visit our website for more information about the projects.
