Are you looking for an opportunity to live with a family and work on an Organic Tea farm during your stay in Nepal? Consider spending time with us at our Tea Garden.
Location: Our organic tea farm is located halfway between the terai plains and Ilam Bazaar. It is around 600km far from the capital city of Nepal.
Ilam’s rolling hills are lush green with tea gardens. Thick white fogs alternatively descend to veil the gardens and then suddenly vanish.
For further information and the newest pictures of our farm life, you can also visit us on our facebook page.

Accommodation: Volunteers stay at a home with our families. Nepali people are extremely hospitable and volunteers will be well looked after, however the accommodation will be typically Nepali and therefore basic by Western standards. Toilets and showers are usually Nepali style, and the electricity supply in many places can be unreliable. We have lots of previous experience in looking after volunteers. Volunteers are given a simple room with very basic things.
Meals: Based on Nepalese dining customs, we provide two major meals a day plus two tea and snack breaks. Tea is served around 7 am. Brunch is served around 9 to 10 am and is usually typical Nepali food, dal/bhat (rice, lentils, and vegetables). Tea is served again at around 3 pm with local snacks. Dinner is at around 7 to 8 pm. The food is very simple but also extremely tasty and filling. Vegetables mostly comes from our own gardens. Fresh milk and curd are also provided if available.
Let us kindly inform you that all volunteers are kindly requested to contribute to our evolving village farm, by paying $5 dollars per day per person for your food, accommodation.

Warum lässt workaway.info Inserate von Gastgebern zu, die einen finanziellen Beitrag verlangen?
In Entwicklungsländern (wo die meisten Gastgeber gemeinnützige Arbeit oder Gemeinschaftsentwicklungsarbeit anbieten) verlangen einige unser Gastgeber einen kleinen Beitrag, um die Gastfamilie oder NGO zu unterstützen (meist handelt es sich um weniger als 5 USD pro Tag). Workaway lässt diese Art von Inseraten dann zu, wenn die Spende direkt an die Familie oder die NGO geht und nur dazu dient, die Kosten des Aufenthalts des Volunteers abzudecken. (Dies wird im Inserat des Gastgebers deutlich angegeben).
Wir lassen keinerlei Inserate von Agenturen, „Vermittlern“ oder Projekten zu, bei denen wir das Gefühl haben, dass sie Profit aus dem Aufenthalt von Volunteeren schlagen wollen.
