About

As a rule EHN does not work with orphanages in Nepal due to the conditions of care for the children and the lack of transparency in the owners. Most of these orphanages are centre red in the tourist areas so they can capitalise on the generosity of visitors to Nepal.

But the Syangja children’s home is a little different in the fact it isn’t near the tourist areas and is situated in a rural village near one of the schools we work with. The children’s home is governed by a group of local women who came together to help these children and will only accept female volunteer’s.

As a volunteer your responsibilities will be caring for the children from helping to feed, clean and play games with them in the evening. You will also be expected to walk with them to and from school as well as helping them with their homework etc. But most of all you will be expected to spend time with the children and help the staff provide a loving home for the kids.

Childcare qualifications are wost welcome but will accept volunteers who have experience with looking after children.
