Our Care & Community Project in Nepal is based in the Kathmandu valley - an area rich in ancient temples reflecting the country's great wealth of culture and tradition. Although two weeks is relatively short, it gives you the opportunity to make a significant difference in other people's lives as well as your own.

You will discover another culture as you explore and learn more about this great country. You will stay in a hotel close to the areas where you are working and will participate in evening activities planned by our local staff. Throughout your time in Nepal, the hotel will be your point of contact with other volunteers and all Projects Abroad staff (your Volunteer Coordinator will be based here as well). You will have direct contact with our staff at meal times and on site at your project. 

Volunteers will spend their time doing important work in the community. In the mornings you will focus community work in a local school or care centre for children. During this time you will be renovating and decorating the building. By putting in a new floor or painting a mural on a neglected wall, you will be making a valuable and lasting contribution to the placement. In the afternoons you will take part in a variety of activities including outreach work, visits to some of our partner care organizations where you will run activities for the children, and visiting local monuments and historical sites.

Over the weekend you may have the chance to visit the central markets and local temples of Kathmandu, or you could take a trip to the huge and beautiful nature reserve of Chitwan National Park.

For those who want to do a longer stay, this project is available as a 4-week program on select dates. Those joining us on the 4-week program will get extra visits and activities arranged during the other weekends.

For high school students who want to volunteer abroad over their spring break, this project is available as a 2-week program on select dates in March.

Jessie Veitch
We arrived at the school and quickly fell in love with the cute children who looked forward to meeting us each day. After seeing the dark, old classrooms we knew it was time to lighten them up with some fresh paint and art. After a few days the classrooms began to look alive and the kids were so excited to get in there and use them. Read more...
