Volunteer Nepal Orphanage Children's Home

Volunteers live with a traditional family. This provides volunteers with an opportunity to learn about all aspects of Nepali life, culture, food and people. Volunteers are expected to share items which show their own culture, customs and to share information about their home with the family and the community.

Volunteers doing this program exclusively become a member of the household, and participate in all activities including cooking, washing, working in the fields, and generally caring for the house and family. This is the best way to experience the real Nepal.

Note: Volunteers participating in most of the other programmess will automatically be participating in this one as well, as they will be staying with Nepali host families.
