Nepali culture is very rich and prolific, something that is easily noticed in its people, the lives of many of Nepal's youth are filled with a stark contrast: having scarce resources and at the same time being rich in values, love and affection. 

This Youth Empowerment volunteer program originated with those children in mind; young people who are willing to learn and get ahead, but frustratingly enough have little chance to do so, young people who often have to deal with social problems such as poverty or violence and at the same time focus on their education. 

We believe in creating more opportunities for these children, because it can make a significant difference and can help them succeed. That is why we are looking for anyone who would also like to be part of this project to help empower the next generation of Nepal, while empowering themselves: this opportunity will allow each volunteer to develop their skills, improve them and also grow a lot on a personal level.

In the morning, our volunteers will collaborate by focusing on community work with the youth, giving classes or talks in designated spaces such as libraries. 

Volunteers will also collaborate in renovating, decorating or adapting these spaces for the use of these young people. 

Unfortunately, our resources are limited, so any kind of support, whether in time, materials or creative ideas for new activities, is welcome. 

Some of the activities that volunteers can do include giving talks on environmental awareness, empowering youth in the library and book club, helping to improve health and sanitation in the villages, teaching children in school, and teaching children and youth some skills such as computer education.

During their participation in the program, volunteers will have a volunteer coordinator who will instruct and guide them to help them integrate more quickly into the project.

Typical day

  • Volunteers for this project work between four and six hours from Monday to Friday (Monday to Friday). 
  • Weekends are free for volunteers to discover Nepal and all the beautiful things it has to offer. 
  • In the first two days of the program, volunteers will be part of an induction program, where they will be introduced to the rest of the volunteers, the project and many of the customs of Nepal. 
  • After that, volunteers can expect to work from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm on the days mentioned above.

Free-time activities

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

  • Attending any of Nepal's very colorful and interesting festivals, where you can immerse yourself in Nepal's culture and history.
  • UNESCO sites in the Kathmandu Valley.
  • Trekking routes such as Annapurna Circuit, Sanctuary and Jomsom
  • Hot air ballooning over the Himalayan mountains.
  • Exploring waterways by raft
