Lerne deine Organisation kennen

Nepal is one of the most beautiful, culturally rich and welcoming countries in the world. It is home to Mount Everest, the birthplace of Buddha, and an astonishingly beautiful and diverse landscape, ranging from the well-known peaks of the Himalaya to the low-lying regions of the Terai. The Nepali people are as diverse at the geography, with over 70 languages or dialects and scores of traditional festivals celebrated throughout the year.

Volunteering in Nepal can be an extremely rewarding and life-changing experience. Your efforts can bring great changes in the lives of individual people and the wider community. This cannot be said enough. In the difficult times that Nepal is now facing, your contribution of time or resources is extremely valuable.

However, Nepal is also one of the most under-developed countries in the world, with low rates of literacy, high rates of poverty and a persistent gender imbalance. The government is frequently unable to provide adequate education and health facilities throughout the country and both urban and rural areas are forced to live without necessary resources to promote growth and development of their communities.

First of all we would like to encourage more people to stay in a more off-the track region as we did. We were the first volunteers in the village (Siurung, Gurung village) who attended this kind of project! The host family was so friendly, warmhearted and we couldn’t have had a better insight and ...
