The program

This essential program works with society's most vulnerable. Based in the magical city of Kathmandu, volunteers will be working with children to provide the care, support and attention that the children in these institutions desperately need. Unfortunately, Nepal suffers extreme poverty, resulting in many families simply being unable to care for their children. Many children have left destitute villages to find work in the capital and will end up trapped in child labor in restaurants, hotels and factories. Many of these children are subjected to sexual abuse by their employers. They are often left walking the streets and preyed upon by human traffickers or those wanting to take advantage of them. This project’s aim is to take these children off the streets and provide them with quality child care and education, saving them from a life of abuse and neglect. Volunteers supply much-needed labor to support these children with care, attention, an education and most importantly – love.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide childcare to the vulnerable children of Nepal
  • Improve the future prospects of the children of Nepal
  • Provide medical care and an education to those in dire need
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both students and international volunteers alike
How you can help

This amazing program is desperate for willing volunteers to share their love and compassion with these wonderful children. They need enthusiastic, passionate and caring volunteers to carry out the daily work required to give these children the quality care they need to thrive. The role is often highly demanding but equally rewarding. Children's center volunteers will find they are constantly busy supporting the needs of these at-risk children. They will help them with daily tasks such as; getting ready for school and sanitation, completing daily chores around the home, collecting children from school, helping them with their homework and learning English. A big part of the role is simply spending time with the children who crave attention. Playing games with them, singing, dancing and playing outside are all activities that are encouraged and will be thoroughly enjoyed by the children – and the volunteer! This is a wonderful way for volunteers to learn more about the Nepalese people and culture while helping make a difference to the lives of children in need. 

Volunteers will contribute in a number of ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Helping to teach children
  • Attending to and interacting with the children
  • Creating activities and entertaining the children with games and songs
  • Teaching basic English and hygiene practices
  • Help with duties in the home where required

Dagelijkse activiteiten

A volunteer’s work day on this project will generally last around 6 hours, Monday to Friday, with a break during the day whilst the children are at school. While we ask all volunteers to be flexible in this regard a typical daily schedule is likely to go something like this:

6:00am Wake-up and travel to the placement

Volunteers have an early start to get the children ready for school before enjoying brunch and a break during the day.

7:00am VOLUNTEERING DUTIES START

Volunteers assist the children with their morning routine and organise simple activities before the children leave for school.

9:00am Take the children to school and return to the host family home

10:00am Brunch with the host family

11:00am STOP VOLUNTEERING DUTIES FOR LUNCH AND FREE TIME

Volunteers are welcome to use this time to prepare activities for the children, relax, explore or help-out at our partner's offices.

3:00pm VOLUNTEERING DUTIES START AGAIN

Collect the children from school

3:30pm Assist with homework

5:00pm Organise tutoring lessons, creative games and activities for the children

8:00pm Dinner with the host family

Vrijetijdsactiviteiten

Volunteers on this program have the opportunity to experience Nepal's vibrant capital city. Kathmandu is a juxtaposition of urban sensory overload (traffic, people, sounds, smells) and serene temples. Whilst on placement Volunteers stay with local host families and volunteer in one of many childcare centers we work with in the Kathmandu Valley.

An amazing way to experience authentic Neplalese life in a tranquil rural, village or city setting.

  • Arrival/Departure Airport: Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu, Nepal (Code:  KTM)

Accomodatie

Volunteers on this program have the unique opportunity to stay with a local Nepalese family. Host families are experienced at caring for volunteers and are welcoming and supportive. Their homes may be basic by international standards and the levels of English may vary but this is more than made up for by generosity of spirit. 

Initially volunteers stay in a hotel in Kathmandu city and are provided with a three day orientation session before transferring to their host family home.

Living conditions in Nepal are far from luxurious and will vary between homes.The accommodation will have running water but hot water is uncommon as are heating and air-conditioning. Electricity will be available but is unreliable and may be turned off for a period each day.

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

WiFi may be available in the Host Family Home for a small fee but we recommend that volunteers purchase a local SIM card and data package on arrival in order to stay in touch with friends and family. 

Gastfamilie
Eten & Drank

Three simple and delicious meals per day are provided throughout the placement and are normally vegetarian with staples such as rice, lentils (dal) and vegetarian curries.  Volunteers are encouraged to take a lunchbox or one can be purchased on-site.
