Volunteer Nepal - Health Project

Program Duration

2-4 Weeks, 5-8 Weeks, 9-12 Weeks, 3-6 Months

Qualifications

Some health care experience is required to qualify for our health project and applicants will need to submit a full resume with their application. Placement in the health project will depend on suitability, though there are places available for those with little experience. Good computer skills are desirable as volunteers may be required to assist with the upkeep of electronic patient records. If you are unsure about your suitability for the project have a chat with one of our coordinators. For those with very little or no experience our Children's Home & Orphanage project offers an excellent alternative. This project will require volunteers to assist with minor health treatments and accompany children to medical appointments. Participants in this project must be 18 years of age or older.
