Volunteer overseas on worthwhile and sustainable programmesVolunteer Overseas

Volunteer in Nepal

Overview

Volunteers in Nepal have been contributing to constructive and sustainable projects for over 10 years. Projects Abroad’s volunteer work in Nepal supports numerous worthwhile placements which, while they may be challenging, give volunteers in Nepal the opportunity to learn about the real world and themselves while making a useful and positive contribution to a worthy community setting.

Volunteers in Nepal have the opportunity to take part in a range of volunteer projects and internships. These include working with children on a care or teaching project, medical and healthcare projects – including dentistry, physiotherapy and nursing, and assisting with conservation efforts.

Where we are Based in Nepal

Our volunteer programme is based in the bustling city of Kathmandu – a city full of jostling crowds, rickety bullock carts and noisy auto-rickshaws. Most of our voluntary placements are located here too, although some are located in more rural areas of the Kathmandu valley. We also have Medical and Care placements in the lowlands area of Chitwan and a Conservation project in Gandruk.

Some volunteers in Nepal live in a youth hostel, however most volunteers live with host families. Certain host families welcome up to four volunteers into their home and you'll usually share a room with one other volunteer.

General Information on Nepal

Volunteers helping in a paddy field in Nepal

Nepal is a tiny, yet stunning land of snow-capped mountains, majestic old temples and the colourful city of Kathmandu. The home of Mount Everest draped along the backbone of the Himalayas, Nepal entices all kinds of people – and they don't go home disappointed.

Nepal has historically been a shrewd trader with both India to the South and China to the North. It is also in a transitional stage from royal autocracy to a form of democracy.

The geographical location of Nepal makes it one of the most bio diverse countries on the planet. As well as the mountains you will find green paddy fields and jungles teeming with exotic wildlife.

Travel and Tourism in Nepal

On your days off from voluntary work, there's always something going on. Kathmandu attracts pilgrims as well as tourists, so there are plenty of religious festivals and temples to visit.

Kathmandu is transforming into a vibrant, more modern metropolis. Western influences mean that you will certainly see modern-looking businessmen or monks chatting on mobile phones, however, there is still plenty of evidence of a more traditional life.

Nepal is the perfect location for anyone adventurous who loves the outdoors. There are places to go white-water rafting in the foaming glacial rivers and the mountainous terrain is perfect for those seeking extreme mountain biking, climbing or trekking activities. Who wouldn't relish the unforgettable experience of hiking in the foothills of Mount Everest or going on an adventure trek through the jungle in Chitwan National Park?
