Make a REAL difference in Nepal with Childcare & Development Program




Central Development Region


This essential program works with societies most vulnerable. Based in the magical city of Kathmandu, volunteers will be working in orphanages with orphaned or abandoned children to provide the care, support and attention that the children in these institutions desperately need. Unfortunately, Nepal suffers extreme poverty, resulting in many families simply being unable to care for their children. Many children have left destitute villages to find work in the capital and will end up trapped in child labour in restaurants, hotels and factories. Many of these children are subjected to sexual abuse by their employers. They are often left walking the streets and preyed upon by human traffickers or those wanting to take advantage of them. This project’s aim is to take these children off the streets and provide them with quality child care and education, saving them from a life of abuse and neglect. Volunteers supply much-needed labor to support these children with care, attention, an education and most importantly – love.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide childcare to the vulnerable children of Nepal
  • Improve the future prospects of the children of Nepal
  • Provide medical care and an education to those in dire need
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both students and international volunteers alike


  • Housing Available
  • Language/Cultural Support Available


  • Groups
  • Families
  • International Volunteers

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!
