Do you ever get a feeling that you have a special purpose on this Earth? In fact, if you had a chance, you would surely save the world. Here’s your opportunity to start. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+

We need a small team comprised of 3-5 English speaking members each pairing with Nepal Friendship Society members, who will teach English to underprivileged children. The children often can't afford any private education and are also lonely and not properly taken care of by their parents, so the Nepal Friendship Society learning center provides a certain protection to them after the school hours.

Program Objectives

The program objectives are met through each child's individual educational plan. These plans are based on a series of learning objectives. The learning objectives include all areas of normal development from seven to ten years of age as:

  • Betterment of community through Education.
  • Support for poor/deprived/Marginalized student Education.
  • Basic Skills 
  • Pre-Academic Skills 
  • Academic Readiness

Volunteering with Nepal Friendship Society gives you the opportunity to learn a lot about the Nepalese way of live. You will live a true cultural experience as you are living in direct contact with the local people. Your time and contribution can make a big difference in our community, so don't miss the opportunity to volunteer with us!

Is there anything I can bring with me that would be useful to your organization?
We would be very grateful for educational books (grammar, science, etc.), illustrated books, English novels and children's books. Also very much appreciated are donations of clothes, art supplies, and stationery.

What should I bring for my host family?
The Nepali people are very friendly, and giving gifts to the volunteer on the day of their departure is very common. If you would like to bring gifts for your family, below are some suggestions: 

  • A small photo album with pictures of you and your family/friends from home
  • Posters, stickers or magazine pictures from your country
  • Children's books
  • T-shirts from your country
  • Flags

What Should I bring for myself?
This will vary depending on what non-information activities you want to participate in (trekking, white water rafting, etc.) and how much you need to be comfortable during your placement. With the exception of medicine, first-aid-kit and high-tech trekking gear, you can buy everything that you would need for your placement in Chitwan (likely cheaper than in your home country). Here are a few suggestions:

  • sleeping bag
  • hiking boots
  • fleece jacket (during winter months) 
  • light-weight cotton clothing 
  • waterproof jacket 
  • mosquito repellent
  • sun cream
  • water purification tablets and/or good quality water purifier
  • first aid kit 
  • flashlight (torch light) 
  • books about your country
  • photos of your family/ friends/ home
