Volunteer work in Nepal
Volunteer work is a wonderful way to get an impression of daily life in Nepal. We carefully prepare volunteer work here locally so that volunteer activities result in mutual pleasure and satisfaction!
Types of volunteer work
Women in Nepal traditionally have fewer opportunities for developent than men. Oppression of women is still very common. Volunteer work for Nepali women focuses on practical knowledge and skills. This way they can gradually reduce the lag in their development and attain more equality. Think of:
- Teaching how to read and write
- Giving English lessons
- Teaching textile skills such as sewing and felt work
- Explaining about personal care and health
- Being a tutor for mothers with growing children*
*Women who are illiterate often have trouble guiding their children who are learning how to read and write. That can lead to a huge - but unnecessary - divide between mothers and children. 'Tutor hosting' is a special form of volunteer work. By participating in the life of a mother in a farming family, a tutor can help bridge the gap between mothers and children.
Many children in Nepal have to make do without any form of education. Our volunteer projects work in schools where children from poor families are taught. In addition to learning how to read and write in Nepali, the children also receive education in various subjects such as English, math, physics and drawing.
Volunteers can help during the lessons, and also do other things such as maintenance work on the school building.
- Primary schools in Kathmandu
- The Deaf School in Dhading
- The Women's School in Kathmandu
- Kathmandu Valley Health Station and out in the countryside
- Sahara Orphanage in Kathmandu
- Local hospital in the countryside
