Volunteer in Nepal Programs

Would you like to use your compassion and skills to change to make a real difference in the world?  Would you like to volunteer abroad while visiting and exploring the captivating country of Nepal? Increase your world view and be personally enriched when you volunteer in Nepal.

Discover endless culture and the origins of Buddhism in Nepal’s capital city of Kathmandu. Experience outstanding regional cuisine, including the ubiquitous momos (Nepalese dumplings). Make a positive impact on the country's economy, still recovering from the devastating 2015 earthquake. Absorb the magnificent Himalayas, diverse wildlife, and beautiful lakes that make Nepal home to some of the most astounding scenery in the world.

Alongside its beauty, Nepal remains gripped by poverty resulting from decades of civil war and political instability. Ravaged by frequent natural disasters, including the devastating 2015 earthquake, the country suffers from poor transportation infrastructure and power shortages. Mountainous geography, the gap between rich and poor, and lack of access to education, all contribute to make Nepal one of the poorest countries in Asia.

Today, Nepal needs volunteers more than ever.

This is where you come in when you join a volunteer-abroad program in Nepal. Work in an orphanage or in health care, teach English in rural schools or to Buddhist monks, or support conservation efforts. Depending on your experience, you can also participate in a photojournalism project, an opportunity unique to Nepal.

Use your kindness and abilities by volunteering to improve the lives of the Nepali people and be rewarded with a lifetime of unique experiences.
