Looking for a volunteer program that is both impactful and meaningful? Look no further than NVCYE-P’s Teaching and Childcare Volunteer Program in Pokhara. As a volunteer in this program, you’ll have the chance to make a real difference in the lives of poor and disadvantaged children who are in desperate need of care and support.
The children who benefit from this program come from extremely poor families who work outdoors during the day just to make ends meet. They study in a locally funded home located in the breathtaking lake-side city of Pokhara, Nepal. However, the home lacks the funding and manpower necessary to provide adequate care for these children, which is where kindhearted volunteers come in. By joining this program, you’ll be providing these children with much-needed quality childcare and contributing to their overall development.
Not only will you be making a difference in the lives of these children, but you’ll also have the opportunity to immerse yourself in Nepalese culture and experience the stunning natural beauty of the Himalayas. Participate in cultural events, learn the Nepalese language, and explore the awe-inspiring scenery of the region.
Don’t worry if you don’t have any prior experience working with children – we welcome volunteers from all backgrounds who are passionate about teaching and working with disadvantaged children. As long as you’re committed to making a positive impact, we want you to join us in creating positive change in the lives of these children.
So what are you waiting for? Join us in Pokhara and be a part of this life-changing volunteer program. Together, we can make a real difference in the world and in the lives of these incredible children.

It’s important to keep in mind that the children in the NVCYE-P Teaching and Childcare Volunteer Program come from some of the most underprivileged backgrounds in Pokhara, Nepal. Many of their families struggle to make ends meet, and the children themselves face daily challenges that are difficult for most of us to imagine. By volunteering in this program, you’ll be providing these children with more than just education and entertainment – you’ll be giving them hope and showing them that there are people in the world who care about them and their future. It’s a rewarding opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of those who need it most.
Required Skills and Qualification:
This volunteer program does not require volunteers to have any specific education or experience. However, you should have a deep love for children and genuinely enjoy working with and spending time with them. Additionally, you should be kind, patient and flexible and possess a passion for improving the lives of those less fortunate than you.
Without visiting your host country ahead of time, it can be hard to know which accommodations are in safe and secure locations and what food sources are healthy and hygienic. You might be worried about feeling lost, stranded, or on your own in a place you have never been to and might not even speak the language.
NVCYE-P takes care of all these things for you throughout the entire duration of your time in volunteering in Nepal, so you can rest easy and know that everything is in order before you arrive. We have carefully vetted every single aspect of your trip, selecting safe and comfortable accommodations, arranging healthy and nourishing local meals, and ensuring that you have helpful and experienced local staff on the ground to guide and support you every step of the way.
Volunteers will stay in a host-family. The host families have a strong interest in our volunteers’ safety and well-being, and they demonstrate this with caution and care. In most host family situations, you will share a room with another volunteer of the same gender.
Lunch & dinner is provided by the host-family during your volunteer work in Nepal. Food is prepared in local style. The main types of food will be rice, lentil soup and vegetables, but once a week the hostel will provide you meat in your lunch or dinner. For vegetarians the choice is usually limited to rice, vegetables, lentil soup and pickle.
