What qualifications do I need to volunteer at your projects?
It depends on which project you wish to join. If you are planning to do a physiotherapy project, you need to have experiences as physiotherapist. If you would like to give teacher training to Nepali teachers, you need to be a teacher with loads of experience yourself. But if you would like to volunteer at our disabled school, you need to be aware that you are working with mentally and physically challenged people. You cannot feel reserve and you have to show dedication in your work. In all projects good English skills are necessary!

Why don’t you have volunteering projects in schools?
For the very reason that schools do not need international volunteers at all! All schools in Kathmandu have enough trained Nepali teachers in their subject of matter. There is no need for volunteers withouth teaching education to be a substitute teacher for local teachers.

You will pay us at the end of your stay. You can pay in EUR, USD or in NPR.
