Nepal
Travel and Study all Around the World

Nature lovers and adventure seekers will love Nepal!

Most people are familiar with Nepal because of its famous Mount Everest, but did you know that there are many more things to appreciate in this country?

Chitawan National Park is the first national park in Nepal, and here you can find seven hundred wildlife species such as the Bengal Tiger. You can also go bungee jumping, paragliding, and even ride a hot air balloon in Nepal! Exploring the wildlife is also a great activity.

You can visit Lumbini, a pilgrimage site where the founder of Buddhism Siddhartha Gautama is said to be born. Kathmandu Valley is also a great place to visit for those inclined towards spirituality, as it is home to the seven “Monument Zones,” including the oldest known Buddhist monument.

There is no need to break the bank to visit this country that houses 35 different ethnic groups. Nepal is one of the cheapest countries to travel in. Taste delicious and healthy local food with Chinese and Indian influences while only spending $10 for three meals. Find a great accommodation for $18.50 a night. Great deals are to be found everywhere, while learning about the many cultures of diverse groups in just one country.

Many volunteer opportunities in Nepal

  1. Teaching and Education
    You can help make a direct and long-term contribution in students’ development by building their confidence and improving their academic performance.
  2. Child Care
    One of the most satisfying and fulfilling volunteering activities is helping with the basic education of children in underprivileged communities. This project aims to provide a higher standard of care for infants and young children in public- and privately- run facilities.
  3. Women Empowerment
    Different on-going and short-term programs help build the confidence, self-esteem, and abilities of women in the community who are in the marginalized sector of society. Teenage girls and adult women benefit from these programs, leading them to a better life.
  4. Elderly Care
    While the elderly make the best of what they have, they still long for care and connection with people. Volunteers are given the opportunity to share experiences with the old residents.
  5. Orphanage Care
    Children need the support and good example of adults, especially those who have been  orphaned. Volunteers can experience this very rewarding task to be with underprivileged children, to help them face challenges in life and truly make a difference in the children’s lives.
  6. Monk Teaching
    Formal education is becoming a growing need in Monk Education Centers, as institutions have the tendency to focus on religious or spiritual education. This presents a great opportunity for volunteers to provide aid.

Other activities in the program

Morning yoga sessions, Henna workshop, Nepalese clothing workshop, and a dinner with the local host family are some of the added activities in this program. You can also join excursions to Pokhara and Nagkarot for a more meaningful travel experience, and see the other wonders Nepal has to offer.
