Immerse yourself in historic and fascinating culture when you travel to Nepal to join an international team of volunteers working to improve the lives of the local communities by building and renovating basic infrastructure and educational facilities. Discover the wonder of this mountainous, landlocked country in your free time.
This program focuses on construction, renovation and mural design work in local educational facilities or community centers. The project is very specific to the needs of the community such as helping with sanitation, water supplies, furniture making or helping with building constructions or painting and therefore can change.
The construction project is a very hands-on project but it gives the volunteers the opportunity to make a rapid difference to the schools and community centers. By improving the local schools the volunteers help the local children and teachers to be more proud of their school and to encourage more to show up every day.
Nepal offers some amazing experiences that can be done on the weekends or at end program. We have fabulous views of the Annupurna mountain range and opportunities for treks ranging from a few hours to a full weekend or more. Weekend activities can include Chitwan National Park, visiting Lumbini, the Birthplace of Buddha and the World Peace Pagoda. We have a local partners who can support you in coordinating your time here.
*It can be really hot at certain times of the year. Volunteers must be comfortable with lifting and shoveling. Work can consist from anything from building walls of concrete to painting to building benches or toys.
Monsoon season is in June-August, most work will be indoor refurbishment.
