Nepal, a country rich in traditions that are reflected in the great cultural wealth they have. Even if you make a short trip, it will give you the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of many young people from these communities of scarce resources but rich in values, love and affection. The Youth Empowerment Volunteer Program in Nepal was created with all these young people in mind who often only have one chance to get ahead, which can be frustrated by the conditions of poverty, violence and economic situation. Therefore, we are looking for volunteers who wish to dedicate their time during their holidays, sabbatical year or why not, long stay trips and who are part of this volunteer experience, which is not only a volunteer, it is also a work experience that allows you to develop and enhance your skills and the most important thing is to enrich yourself on a personal level.
As a volunteer and part of the youth empowerment volunteering programme in Nepal, in the mornings you will focus on community work with young people. Many of the classes or talks take place in libraries or spaces adapted for the activities. During this time they will participate in the renovation, decoration and adaptation of these spaces. The resources available are limited so all the support you can give in terms of time, material and ideas for didactic, educational and sports activities are welcome.
