Make a REAL difference in Nepal with Childcare & Development Program
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Love Volunteers
Mid-Western Development Region
The mission of this essential program is to care for the orphaned, abandoned and impoverished children in the city of Pokhara. Poverty and a very low standard of living sadly result in cases where children are left orphaned and uncared-for, often finding their way on to the streets. Some manage to be placed in orphanages. These, however, are poorly resourced and rely on donations and on volunteers to help with the children. The children in this program’s orphanage require a lot of care, attention and most importantly, companionship. Volunteers spend their time caring for the children, helping with their education, playing games and arranging fun activities during leisure time. Attention and companionship is what the children on this program crave the most. For volunteers who truly want to make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children, those orphaned, abandoned or impoverished, this program serves to protect and care for those who need it most. Every child deserves a safe and happy upbringing, and this program aims to offer that chance. Volunteering on this program will truly make a difference to the lives of children facing a bleak future.
Goals of this Project:
- Provide childcare and education to orphaned children and youth
- Expose non-English speakers to native English speakers in order to improve pronunciation and conversational skills
- Improve the future prospects of some of Nepal’s most impoverished people, and help them to break the poverty cycle
- Expose volunteers and children to different people and cultures

How To Apply
Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to assist in the ongoing support and development of marginalized and at-risk children of Nepal. This highly interactive and varied project does not require participants to have a background in the field of childcare, as there are many ways you can assist. However, volunteers with suitable education, qualifications or experience are highly sought after. Regardless, a volunteer’s individual role can often be tailored to suit their particular skills and interests. Importantly, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
