Volunteering Projects in Nepal Children's Homes, Global Volunteer Network, Kathmandu, Nepal
DescriptionThe Global Volunteer Network currently has volunteer opportunities available through our partner organization in the beautiful country of Nepal. Volunteers have the opportunity to participate in a variety of educational and community aid programs. This will give you a chance to make an important contribution to the people of Nepal and while doing so gain an in depth experience of the country and its culture, that will stay with you the rest of your life. In this program volunteers will be placed in a children's home located within a one and a half hour bus ride from the heart of Kathmandu. Your role as a volunteer is to be a big brother or sister to the children. Other tasks may include helping with medical visits, cleaning, paper recycling, gardening, teaching the house mothers how to clean properly, doing repairs, mending clothing, planning activities for after school, and perhaps preparing meals. Once the children return from school, your role will be to assist and encourage them with their homework as well as play with them. Some of the older children may be encouraged to develop skills that could help them in later life such as paper making, sewing, or maintenance work. Requirements: Volunteers for this program must: * be 18 years or older * have no major health problems * the teaching program requires a 6 week minimum commitment
