An incredible volunteering experience and a trip of a lifetime!

I spent four months volunteering as a teacher in Nepal with Oyster and had an amazing time. The support and advice that I received from Oyster before the trip prepared me very well for the experience, and Basant, the in-country representative, was extremely friendly and approachable, and able to deal with any problems if they arose. I stayed with a lovely Nepalese family, who welcomed me into the community and made me feel like their own daughter, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being completely immersed in a very different culture. The teaching itself was well-organised, and a very rewarding experience. Going with a group of other Oyster volunteers from the UK was brilliant as it gave me a group of friends to explore Kathmandu and the rest of the country with at the weekends and in the school holidays. I made friends for life, and unforgettable memories - a highly recommendable programme!
