Volunteer in Nepal - Volunteering Abroad Opportunities
Volunteering Abroad in Nepal: Nepal is a magical Himalayan country with an unusually diverse landscape. Eight of the world's ten highest mountains, including Mount Everest, are found in Nepal, making it a haven for trekking, mountain biking, and hiking. The country is also known for its national wildlife parks, jungle safaris, river rafting, and its many beautiful temples and places of worship. Nepal offers visitors a mix of ancient and modern with common sites like cows walking down the streets, Buddhist monks talking on cell phones and local children playing on 1000 year-old temple ruins.
The population of Nepal is approximately 27 million people; almost half of them are under 18 years old. Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world, most people living on less than $1000 a year. Almost 80% of the population still makes a living from agriculture. The rate of unemployment is almost 50% and poverty levels are very rampant. Nepal's youth is quite large, accounting for almost half of the population. Many children are orphaned, abandoned, homeless and living on the streets.
Our orphanage program, located in Lalitpur (Patan), Kathmandu and Bhaktapur provides children with basic necessities like education, food, shelter, health facilities, in a nurturing community environment. Our programs allow you to take part in meaningful community service work, while discovering the people, sights, smells and tastes of Nepal.
This is a great opportunity to make life-long friends, learn a new culture from the inside out and discover that one person really can make a difference.
