Not only are teachers in short supply, but the teaching institutions are also needing attention. We work with existing schools and children’s centres, repairing and decorating classrooms and also constructing new facilities. The tools and building methods are traditional.

You might also be building or working on general basic infrastructure, improving the quality of life of the local community.
Experience isn’t required but you must be enthusiastic and prepared to get your hands dirty.
This environment provides a great opportunity for volunteers to learn more about Nepal’s language, culture, festivals, customs and family structures.
Helping to provide less privileged children and communities with a comfortable environment to live and learn in is an extremely rewarding experience. The project gives volunteers who are serious about making a real difference in the developing world the chance to do so at a local level, working directly with those who genuinely need help and support now.
