Cultural exchange programs offer volunteers the chance to live with a Nepali family in a small rural village or in city for the duration of their stay. During the cultural exchange volunteers will celebrate traditional Nepalese festivals and learn their meaning and history. Volunteers will be able to exchange information about their own culture with local people. Knowledge of your home culture and an interest in and respect for local cultural practices is important. Volunteers will be trained in Nepalese language and culture in Kathmandu with other volunteers before travelling to their placement. Nepalese culture is characterized by its generosity and openness. You will feel at home and part of the family in your home stay. As a part of the home stay/cultural exchange program you will also have the opportunity to participate in adventure activities including a jungle and elephant safari, trekking and white water rafting.
