Friendship United Nepal (FUN-Nepal)

Friendship United Nepal(FUN-Nepal) volunteer job with meaningful travel expereince in Nepal.

The mission of our volunteer program is to offer meaningful travel experience and volunteer opportunities for international volunteers and seek sustainable solutions
for education, health, conservation, and development issues in Nepal. We
hope to achieve this goal by offering community oriented volunteer programs
in which the efforts of our volunteers directly help the less fortunate
people and their communities.

Volunteers have the opportunity to participate in a variety of educational
and community aid programs. This will give you a chance to make an important
contribution to the people of Nepal and while doing so gain an in-depth
experience of the country and culture, which will stay with you the rest of
your life.

The volunteer opportunities are in the following areas:
1, Home-stay and Cultural Exchange Programs –
2, English Language Instruction - Teaching in a school
3, Teaching at a Children's Resource Center - We have set up Resource Centers.
4, Environmental & Sanitation Awareness - ecotourism or working with green clubs
5, Primary Health Care Education - We have health posts or health camp placements
6, Working in Orphanages and homeless children’s - We have some orphanage homes.
7, Work in a Disabled Care Facility - We have Disabled centers.
8, Administrative Support - To help in the office with fundraising, developing the program and correspondence
9, Volunteers are welcome to design their own program in various areas -
You are most welcome to work in any field and we will support you to arrange
all the necessary aspects of your placement.
*Please note that if you choose to volunteer at an orphanage or resource
center, these take place during the mornings and afternoons. Most of our
volunteers will thus choose to volunteer at a local school during the day.

To confirm your placement with us you need to send us your flight details so
that we will pick you up at the airport. Though we can accommodate
last-minute volunteers, we prefer to receive flight arrival information at
least a month in advance.

The placements are available in Kathmandu Valley, Dhading , Pokhara, and Chitwan, all of which are near to a city. Volunteers can look up the places to get more of a feel for the areas. Furthermore, we will
discuss your exact placement when you arrive according to your needs, safety
considerations and availability. Our local coordinators will be looking
after you.

In a typical placement, volunteers stay with a family and eat Nepali food
with the family twice a day (around 9 o' clock in the morning and 7 o' clock
in the evening). Tea is served in the morning and in the afternoon.
Volunteers may have the opportunity to get together with other volunteers
and share their experiences. You will be able to travel to nearby towns to
purchase things for daily use and can travel to other areas on longer
breaks. Besides your project work, volunteers can utilize their spare time
in organizing the youth and women's groups of the community to do some
worthwhile activities like building a smokeless stove or toilet by using
local materials, making a soak pit, kitchen gardening, making a solar dryer,
garbage management, paper recycling, etc. It's up to you - you can do as
much or as little as you'd like (though, or course, we'd prefer that you do
a lot!!)

we do not ask for any formal qualifications from our volunteers. All we ask
is that you have a genuine desire to help people and a willingness to
experience a new culture and lifestyle.
