Most of the orphanages are located in city areas in Nepal. In one orphanage home there are from 10 to 30 children and their age range is from 4 years to 14 years. All children go to the nearest school during the day time.
We provide volunteer support to more than 5 different orphanages in Kathmandu and Pokhara area. According to the interest of volunteers and need of the orphanages, we decide appropriate placement for each volunteer. To make your volunteer work good and valuable we do all the necessary arrangements before you arrive to the placements.
Your stay: You will be provided your logistic support through our partner organization. At the placement each volunteer stays with a host family or inside the orphanage home as a member of the family. Family will provide a separate room with basic furniture. You will be eating the same food as the family eats everyday. Electricity is available (but Nepal is facing some hours power cuts every day) and phone/ internet service will be accessed close by the area. Every Saturdays you will have a day off, as all Nepali do.
Volunteer Work: Volunteers do not have to have any skills or knowledge about teaching in orphanages, as they will mainly be helping children to do childrens' homework, extra activities like drawing, games, sanitation awareness, helping them in cooking, taking them for sight seeing, restaurants, visit parks, swimming etc.
