Help children from vulnerable communities access education again and get empowered by rebuilding schools wrecked during earthquakes This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singles
Couples
Groups
The area you will be working at faces numerous problems, such as frequent earthquakes, lack of funding, poverty, and other issues. They all put at risk the education of children, which we believe is key in their empowerment. During this program, you will be working closely with locals from the area in order to reconstruct schools and make them suitable for the use of children.

Some of the tasks you may be assigned to do as a volunteer are:
Installing water purification systems or insulation systems within schools
Constructing brick walls or roof structures
Giving maintenance and developing existing infrastructure
Demolishing old buildings that might not be suitable to use anymore
Constructing entirely new classrooms from the ground
Plastering new structures
Decorating and painting classrooms, such as through the creation of murals and images
Spreading awareness about the importance of these classrooms within these communities

There may be other tasks for volunteers to perform depending on the specific necessities of the place where the reconstruction is being done.

Typical day

Our volunteers are expected to work between 4 to 6 hours from Monday through Friday. On weekends, volunteers may enjoy some of the beautiful things Nepal has to offer.

Free-time activities

Tourism is the largest industry in Nepal and its biggest source of foreign income. This is precisely due to the very rich cultural heritage and beautiful attractions Nepal has to offer. We believe that during your stay as a volunteer you shall be able to enjoy some of those very beautiful sights as well. Some of the highlights we could suggest are:

-Assisting any of Nepal's very colourful and interesting festivals, where you'll be able to dive into Nepal's culture and history.
-The Kathmandu valley UNESCO sites
-Trekking routes such as the Annapurna Circuit, Sanctuary, and Jomsom
-Hot air balloons over the Himalayan mountains
-Exploring waterways on a raft
Among many others!
