The placements are available in pokhara Valley, Pokhara and Chitwan, all of which are near to the main city. The exact location of your placement is finalized during the training where you will visit several potential project sites. Project placement also takes into consideration:
- Your skills and preferences - The needs and requirements of the orphanages and schools - Seasonal weather patterns
All placements are very flexible giving you the opportunity to take some time off and explore Nepal and some of the world famous attractions. You could go rafting on the Tibetan border, trekking the Annapurna circuit or Everest , maybe Himalayan river kayaking, join the Royal tiger and elephant safari, or try the longest free-fall bungee jump in the world.
Volunteers for this program must have sound health. Volunteers need to be independent, enthusiastic and adaptable. We does not ask for any formal qualifications from our volunteers. All we ask is that you have a genuine desire to help people and are committed to seeing the programme through.
Our programs run throughout the year. You can volunteer anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 months. Also, we are pretty flexible on your arrival regards and our programme is very flexible and it would be possible you to start any time.
You will be met at the airport by a representative of your guesthouse and taken back to your accommodation. All volunteers will receive initial training after arriving in pokhara. The training is designed to help you settle into Nepal and to ensure you are fully prepared for your volunteer placement: A typical orientation period is as follows:
Basic Nepali Language classes - 2hrs, morning. Nepali cultural orientation/general cultural exchange Sightseeing - 2 1/2 hrs, afternoon.
After completion of your orientation phase you will be escorted to your assigned placement.
2 weeks Euro 200 • 1 month Euro 300 • 1 1/2 months Euro 400 • 2 months Euro 450 • 2 1/2 months Euro 475 • 3 months Euro 500 • 4 months Euro 600 • 5 months Euro 650
The program fee covers: airport pickup, language primer, administrative charge, training, accommodation and main meals during placement, cultural sightsee, transportation for volunteers and supervision.
The other costs you will need to meet are: Your flights, Visa (a 60 day tourist visa is only US$30, the extensions are US$30 per 30 days with three renewals possible), shots, travel insurance, and corresponding airport departure taxes. Also you will need a weekly budget of up to US$20 to cater for all your other expenses like bottled water, personal items, beverages and entertainment. Living in a village is relatively inexpensive in comparison to most western countries and usually it is difficult to spend more than US$ 10 per week during your placement.
For the final confirmation we need to receive your flight arrival information .
