Volunteering at our children’s homes in Pokhara and Chitwan, you will live with the children and our host families, assisting them with their day to day routine. The children are between four and fifteen years old and have a basic understanding of English. Generally you will act as an older sibling; looking after and encouraging the children. As a volunteer you will teach the children general life skills, including health & sanitation, as well as arts, crafts and music.
Before the earthquake in April 2015 we placed volunteers in Goljung village in the Langtang National Park. Langtang is a mountainous region and Goljung village sits at 1,967m above sea level. This part of Nepal was badly affected by the earthquake and is only now getting ready to take volunteers again. Living with a local family you will teach English at the local school, spend time with the village children and support the local community. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about the Tamang culture and Buddhist religion in a rural setting, high in the Himalaya mountains.
Volunteering in Nepal during your Gap Year is a fantastic way to make a difference and at the same time have an amazing experience you’ll never forget.

Make a difference today
Our aim is to provide you with an opportunity to help make a difference to the lives of children in Nepal, while having the trip of a lifetime. We want to encourage you to consider Nepal as the go to travel and adventure destination. We want you to experience the real Nepal, see the Himalayas up close, maybe see a tiger, tell your friends and then come back and see us again and again. As they say in Nepal, once is not enough!
Our approach to providing a fantastic volunteer experience is a bit different from other organisations. We don’t try to be all things to all men, but rather specialise in one destination, using our extensive experience to keep it simple and do it well.
As a volunteer on one of our programmes, you make an impact just by travelling to Nepal. You support our projects with your time and programme fees. You also support the village stores when you shop there. You support the taxi drivers, the bus drivers, restaurants and hotels during your free time. When you go on a trek or jungle safari, you support the porters, the lodge owners and their families and even support the ongoing conservation programmes in Nepal. The list is endless.
Sounds exciting right? Why not contact us today and join us soon for the adventure of a lifetime. You won’t regret it.
