The "Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal", the birth place of Gautama Buddha, is a land locked mountainous country in between China in the north and India on the other sides. There are about 30 million people with over 70 spoken languages and 40 ethnic groups. It is rich in bio-diversity, culture and tradition with the disappearing animals, exquisite temples and monuments, and the breath-taking Himalayas. Nepal is one of least developed countries in the world with about 37% of the total population living with less than a dollar's income per day and under the extreme poverty line. Since the development process that should be carried out by the government side has been disrupted due to political transition, Nepalese communities are in a great need of assistance.
Our programs are designed to help the local communities at the same time of providing a rewarding learning and living experience to our volunteers. We have flexible start dates/durations, and customized programs tailored just for you.
