Voluntourism is fast being recognised worldwide as one of the best ways to experience a country. You get in touch with people, get to know cultures, and work seems to be a connecting point somehow, which leads to great experiences, not to mention that you go back having made an impact.

We offer different placements, very nominally priced, as we believe that volunteers are coming and giving their time and effort, and though we do need to be paid for a service we provide, we should not be excessive and provide easy means for this intercultural experience to happen. Volunteering in Nepal can be a very fulfilling. You immerse yourself in the local culture which is laid back, rich in philosophy and art, and is very friendly and tolerant towards other cultures.

These can vary in length and activity depending on interests, budgets and time available. Combining volunteer work with travel is the best way to see this country. A typical package will involve a short culture tour of the city to acquaint you with the place and the culture. Thereafter, you start on your volunteer placement in earnest (which will be tailored to your interests and will involve you staying at a guesthouse or a home stay) and will include language classes to enhance your basic Nepali skills. In Nepal, we manage ground logistics for organisations such as Of course, we also run our own volunteer opportunities for a very reasonable placement fee.
