Thinking about travelling and volunteering abroad in Nepal? How about working in an orphanage abroad? If the thought to help others has ever crossed your mind, consider volunteering in an orphanage in Nepal. Nepal is a stupendous country, full of exuberant culture and traditions, but unfortunately a streak of tragedies has left many children without homes. If you volunteer in Nepal, you will experience a new world first-hand and discover how great an impact you can make on the lives of children across the globe.

Work with children living in orphanages in Nepal and help in efforts to provide love, care, compassion and education to enhance both their present and future educational and career prospects by joining this orphanage project in Nepal.

Orphanages in Nepal are the only place for orphaned children to stay and get proper food, care and education. Yet, these orphanages are poorly funded and lack enough staff to take proper care of the children. When you volunteer with our orphanage project in Nepal, you will spend most of your time teaching children, playing with them, and making sure they feel loved, cared and well looked after. Through the attention you provide, the children can believe in themselves and work towards a better future. The children are also very enthusiastic about working with international volunteers. Your invaluable contribution for the betterment of the disadvantaged children will be highly appreciated.

Volunteers can opt to volunteer in three orphanage projects:

  • Home of Rescued Afflicted Children of Nepal (HORAC)
  • HOPAD Child and Women Promotion Society
  • Light for Nepal
