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.
