In lesser developed countries such as Nepal, thousands upon thousands of children are orphans, with no real home, no family and no opportunity to get an education. Apply to volunteer on this project today!

Volunteers will be placed in an orphanage/care house where they will assist children in their day to day routine. The general role of the volunteer will be to act as an older sibling to the children. What volunteers do specifically in each orphanage varies depending on where they are placed and the requirements at the time of the placement.

However examples of work include; helping teach the children and assisting with tuition of general life skills through participating in administrative chores, health education, games, and by drawing and painting with the children. By volunteering for IVHQ’s orphanage work program, volunteers help to mold and shape the young minds of talented, charming and grateful children.


Sample Placement
