Nepal is rich in traditions that are reflected in the great cultural wealth of the country. Even if you come for only a short period of time, you will have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of many young people from these communities that are 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 take a step ahead, but can often become frustrated with the conditions of poverty, violence and economic insecurity. Therefore, we are looking for volunteers who wish to dedicate a bit their time and become part of this volunteer program, that is not only a volunteer experience, but also a work experience that allows you to develop and enhance your skills, and most importantly to enrich yourself on a personal level.
As a volunteer in the youth empowerment volunteer programme in Nepal, you will focus on community work with young people in the mornings. Many of the classes or talks take place in libraries or spaces adapted for the activities. During this time, you 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 will be very appreciated.
YOUR ROLE AS A VOLUNTEER
During your stay in the country, you will have a volunteer coordinator that will guide and accompany you, so that your integration into the project is fast and easy. Some of the activities you will take part in as a volunteer are:
- Improving health and sanitation in villages
- Teaching women and adults
- Spreading environmental awareness
- Empowering the youth in libraries and joining the youth club
- Teaching children in schools

During the project, you will receive three daily meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner). The meals will be authentic Nepalese cuisine. Each volunteer is treated as another member of the family and is free to cook very often if they like.
