Volunteer on a range of community projects in locations throughout Nepal. These projects are aimed at promoting social well-being through cultural exchange and supporting healthcare and environmental issues. Projects include traditional farming projects and healthcare volunteering in medical camps and government hospitals.



It was immensely rewarding, and like nothing I’ve ever experienced before. There is a lot of work to be done in Nepal and I hope more volunteers can get out there and make a difference, helping to give Nepalis a standard of living that matches the great quality of family values they have and the amazing landscapes there.
