The rural public health public is an non profit organization, which has the sole purpose of providing the best service to the people who want to enjoy a great experience by working as a volunteer in Nepal. RHP Voluntary work in Nepal can be a very rewarding activity. You will receive a warm welcome from the Nepalease people who are famous for their honesty and hospitality. You will also be an amazing diverse country from the peak of the Himalaya to the tropical heat of the flat Tarai, from the chaos of Kathmandu to the tranquility of rural areas.

RHP arranges all the necessary training to make the volunteer confident and comfortable before going to work in the field.

A Nepali family will be arranged for volunteers to stay with. Volunteers will be escorted by RHP staff and settled at the family and work place. Each volunteer will live with a local family as a family member of the household. The family will be given orientation on how to deal with and accommodate the guest, provide food, tea and boiled water. The meal consists of local traditional food such as dal-bhat (lentil and rice), noodles, omelet and various combinations. You will be eating what the family eats. The host family will live quite near to your work place.

Volunteers are expected to work for 2 to 5 hours a day, six days a week but there are plenty of holidays.
