Nepal is home to the breathtaking Himalayas and some of the world’s most hospitable people. Never having had a colonial past, Nepal retains its rich Buddhist culture that only the more adventurous travellers ever see.

You will live and work in the magnificent Kathmandu Valley in an urban school. Kathmandu is one of the world’s most exotic cities and a base for trekkers and climbers who have come to Nepal to trek and explore some of the highest mountain ranges in the world including Mount Everest!

You will live with a local Nepalese family becoming the guest of honour at events and occasions. This will enable you to immerse yourself in local culture and get beneath the skin of Nepal – something you would not experience as a tourist.

Your main job is to help with the English teaching. Your ability to speak and write good English is incredibly useful to the Nepalese people for whom English is vital for tourism and business. Besides teaching English volunteers enjoy using their interests to run a sports team or get involved in music, art or drama. Often it is in the extra curricular activities that volunteers can really leave their mark, and a legacy, on a school.

Trekking, rafting and a yoga retreat are some activities that can be added to this trip.
