Free-time activities

The volunteer activities will be in the remote villages of Nepal where is no many options of free time activities as the place will not be suitable for outdoor activities. But of course you can take a village walk, short hiking, play sports like badminton, chess, ludo. Most of the indoor games will be suitable here. Reading might be the best way to kill your free time. You won’t be engaging on works that require technical expertise. The activities done by volunteers are carrying housing equipment like timber, stones, sand, cement, tin, iron rods, aluminum sheets etc, mixing sand and cement, painting the walls of the houses and so on. For activities needing technical skills, we will hire building professionals. But if you have skills, then you can help them in their work and make things easier.
