Voluntary Work in Nepal

  • Kathmandu, Central Region, Nepal

We offer a unique volunteering opportunity for individuals, couples, groups, students and experts, as well as senior and youth professionals from all over the world to be part of its various humanitarian activities. At the same time volunteers experience the rich culture, natural splendor and daily life of Nepal, one of the most beautiful countries of the world. The mission and objective of the Everest Foundation Nepal Volunteer Program is to encourage and invite International/National volunteers to contribute to community development, education development, as well as health and environmental activities of the Nepali people. Our program promotes the opportunity for individuals to build international links and mutual friendship, through a global partnership. It is our belief that through hard-work and positive thinking, we can all help to improve cultural tolerance and encourage world peace. It is of course better to have previous working experience but no experience is needed to take part in most of the programs and Everest Foundation Nepal strongly encourages all applicants who have a positive outlook and a strong desire to help improve Nepal. All volunteers will enjoy a unique opportunity for travel, adventure and exploration (both natural beauty and self-exploration). Volunteers will experience life in Nepal first-hand, working alongside Nepali people to help support local communities in Nepal. In this way, volunteers will make a meaningful contribution to a disadvantaged segment of the world community, while participating in a cultural exchange with local people who will ultimately be responsible for sustainable development. Voluntary work in Nepal can be an extremely rewarding and life-changing experience. Upon arrival, and throughout their stay, volunteers will receive a warm welcome from the Nepali people, who are famous for their honesty and hospitality. Volunteers will live and work in one of the world's most diverse countries, with geography that ranges from the peak of the Himalaya to the tropical heat of the flat Terai; from the chaos of Kathmandu to the tranquility of rural villages. We make sure all our volunteers are well prepared before beginning work as a volunteer by providing orientations, training in Nepali language, culture and work practices. Everest Foundation Nepal does everything possible to look after our volunteers' safety and make sure they will have a meaningful and pleasant stay. Everest Foundation Nepal volunteer program is not merely a volunteer placement; we customize the programs to match the need, taste, and interest of our volunteers.

Our Volunteer Opportunities are

Volunteering with orphaned/ destitute Children

Thousands of children are orphans, with no real home, no family and no opportunity to get an education in Nepal. Through the Everest Foundation Nepal orphanage work program, volunteers will be placed in an orphanage/care house where they will assist children in their day to day routine. The general role of the volunteer will be to act as an older sibling to the children.

Health Volunteering

Health volunteering in NepalDue to lack of education and awareness, many Nepali people are often reluctant to go to the hospital and other modern health services because of orthodox thinking, superstition and other cultural influences. Some Nepali people may visit faith-healer or witchdoctor when they suffer from illness, so they sometimes die as a result of avoiding modern medications. By living and working with poor communities, Health Program volunteers also increase the exposure of rural Nepali people to modern medicine.

Volunteering with Disabilities

volunteering with disabilities in NepalDisabled individuals in Nepal are ignored, neglected and forced to live in dark rooms, because most of the family members of disabled individuals feel shame at having lost the prestige due to them in the community. As a result, they are dying in the same room or bed where they were born. Some of their families members may also make them beg on the streets. In these ways the individuals are losing their human rights.

Volunteering with Street children in Nepal

volunteering with street children in NepalNumbers of the street children are increasing in urban area. As there is no authorized data of street children who are living in street are 90% boys and 10% girls. The children are coming in street due to more urbanization, migration and desire to get more pleasure, selfishness of the persons of urban and increasing unemployment. The children above eight years are living pitiable life in the street. They have come in street due to stepmother, household disputes, poverty, ignorance and lack of family awareness.

Teaching Volunteering In Nepal

teaching volunteering in NepalAs English is an international language, it is becoming more and more of a required skill for job placement, educational advancement and future success. Many classes are delivered in English by Nepali teachers, who frequently have only a basic knowledge of English themselves. Therefore, there is limited opportunity for Nepali students to expand their knowledge and use of the English language without direct contact with a teacher fluent in English
