Nepal

Country Overview

As one of the poorest countries in Asia, Nepal is crying out for volunteers’ intent on making an impact on their fellow humans’ living conditions amid a distinctly different culture. Past volunteers have been bowled over by how friendly and welcoming the Nepalese people are.

Volunteers are required year-round to help ensure that the process of sustainable development continues uninterrupted. A host of different programs are run, from teaching in schools and monasteries, to assisting in hospitals and clinics, and helping farmers to use more enlightened methods of cultivation. The primary goal of all of the programs is the improvement of quality of life and living standards for the Nepalese, with particular emphasis on the most disadvantaged of the country’s communities.

Volunteering in Nepal is not just a great chance to learn and experience the Nepalese way of life, it also offers interesting challenges leading to personal growth and a deepening of wisdom, judgement and understanding. Volunteering overseas is something that everyone should do at some point in their life. And, to do so in the dramatic country of Nepal allows the volunteer to step into a complex society where traditional, un-modernised elements jostle with cosmopolitan development. Most crucial of all for volunteers in Nepal is the fact that the projects where they work give people the tools they need to enhance their lives.
