The program

To learn children need a safe and solid environment with the right facilities and resources.  This wonderful program takes place on the outskirts of magical Kathmandu in a primary school. Located close to one of Kathmandu's largest slum areas, near Bhaktapur, the school provides free education, text books, uniforms and shoes to more than 150 children who live in poverty within the confines of the slum, and whose parents would otherwise not have been able to send their children to school at all. Sadly, the school too lacks massively from underfunding, and it’s a daily struggle to simply keep the doors open. There are not enough classrooms and teaching materials are poor, meaning the children are simply not getting the education they deserve. This program offers true assistance to schools by supplying them with an international volunteer labor force that allows them to repair and maintain school facilities that they would otherwise be unable to afford to do. Volunteers on this program help schools to continue to support children’s educational needs by providing them with much-needed assistance in providing safe facilities. 

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide free volunteer labor to maintain and build essential school facilities
  • Improve the future prospects of the children by supplying them with safe spaces to learn and play
  • Expose the locals to new and innovative ideas and a different way of doing things
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both students and international volunteers alike.
How you can help

Without adequate facilities, a school is unable to teach their students effectively. Volunteers on this program play a major role in ensuring safe classrooms, facilities and playgrounds are supplied to students. Those volunteering on this program will see first-hand what a difference this help has made and how the children will benefit. While supplying an essential need to the schools, volunteers will also gain an amazing cultural experience from their time, immersing themselves in the local culture and learning from the locals. Volunteers will spend their time working on renovations to school facilities. From brightening up a classroom, replacing a broken door hinge, constructing a new blackboard or fixing a leaking tap, volunteers could be helping on a multitude of tasks and essential projects to create a better environment and facilities for the children. 

Volunteers will need to be physically fit and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Building maintenance
  • Construction
  • Painting
  • Networking with local program staff and other volunteers

Journée Typique

A volunteer’s work day on this project will generally last between 3 and 4 hours, following the Nepalese 6 day working week, Sunday to Friday. While we ask all volunteers to be flexible in this regard, a typical daily schedule is likely to go something like this:

8:30am Breakfast at the Volunteer House

9:30am Walk or bus to the project site

10:30am Pre-start meeting with the project supervisor (when required)

11:00am VOLUNTEERING DUTIES START

Lunch is taken at the school from 1:30pm - 2:00pm

4:00pm VOLUNTEERING DUTIES END

Free time to spend at the Volunteer House or running errands, checking emails, exploring Kathmandu.

4:15pm De-brief with the program supervisor (when required)

4:30pm Walk or bus to the Volunteer House or run errands in town.

6:30pm Dinner at the Volunteer House

Evening Free time to relax, catch up with friends and family or explore Kathamandu

Activités de Loisir

Volunteers on this program have the opportunity to experience Nepal's vibrant capital city. Kathmandu is described as the “Land of Gods” and home to the “largest congregations of magnificent historical monuments and shrines ever built”.  

The city is a juxtaposition of urban sensory overload (traffic, people, sounds, smells) and serene temples. With so much to see and do in the city itself and located on the foothills of the Himilayas this is an exciting destination for the international traveler.

Logement

Volunteers on this rewarding placement are accommodated in a Volunteer House near to the town of Bhaktapur in Kathmandu. Rooms are dormitory style and may be shared depending on the number of volunteers.

Living conditions in Nepal are far from luxurious and part of the experience of volunteering in this location is getting back to basics! The Volunteer House has both electricity and running water but be prepared for power outages and cold water only. Heating and air-conditioning are not standard in Nepal. Bedsheets and a pillow are provided so volunteers need only take a sleeping bag, personal toiletries and towel(s). Mosquito nets are readily and cheaply available locally and the local team will assist with purchasing one should it be required. 

When volunteering during Nepal’s winter months (particularly December, January and February) warm clothes and a heavy sleeping bag are recommended.  

Internet coverage is available at the Volunteer House and school but can be unreliable and it is recommended that volunteers purchase a local SIM card and data package on arrival in order to stay in touch with friends and family. The local team will assist with this.
