    Description

    Hello and Namaste!!!
    My name is Prashna, I am 29 years old and I work as a social worker here in Nepal. Growing up I did not have much in life and I am grateful to have been raised in an orphanage school for 15 years. Due to the kindness that was shown to me, I want to give something back to my community and help children in the same situation.

    That’s why I organized a house where I can provide 7 children who don’t have a family (4 boys and 3 girls, between 3and 14 years) a home where they can grow up, go to school, and have a home.

    Beside this, we are a social service organization, established in 2014, that aims to work in three different fields:
    1. provide scholarship for children, living in the nearby slum areas
    2. support young adults to reach their independence
    3. provide nutritious food, education, health care and help with reconstruction for schools which were destroyed by the big earthquake in 2015 and other natural disasters.

    We want the volunteers to look after the children in the house here, help them doing their homework, teach them any new skills you might provide, and much more.

    We are excited to work with you and to tackle the problems faced in the Nepalese community.

    Help

    We appreciate help from volunteers all over the world. They will get a chance to experience the life style of the Nepalese society along with the culture, traditions and delicious food. Both parties will benefit from the exchange of services.

    We as a host ask a contribution of $4 per day for the volunteers, which include food, accommodation and internet access and gives free information for the discounted tours and sightseeing opportunities!

    We accept the volunteers help to do the following things:
    - help the children with their homework.
    - teaching some hours in the school (which is near by the orphanage) with different subjects like English, math, science, health and sanitation.
    - farming and gardening
    - motivating the teenagers for their better future
    - reconstruction projects for schools which have been affected by the natural disasters like earthquake, flood or landslide.

    Our project in Chitwan:

    Here we have an eco-farm that produces vegetables, has chickens, and organises community projects. There are opportunities to teach English and other subjects at the nearby schools for volunteers, as well as work on the farm. To support the community you can help
    distributing information about health sanitation, family planning, and environmental education.

    During their free time, volunteers have many different opportunities, for example go to Pokhara (walk in 30 minutes, take a taxi or bus to Pokhara, which has many restaurants, shops and yoga studios, cafes,...), explore the surrounding areas of Pokhara and Fewa Lake, go to Kathmandu, or Chitwan with activities that include trekking, jungle safaris, boating, temples and so much more!

    Why does workaway.info allow listings of hosts who charge money?

    In developing countries (Where most hosts are involved in charity work or community development) some of our hosts may ask for a small donation to help the host family or charity (often less then 5 dollars per day) Workaway will allow this listing when the donation goes directly to the family or charity and is just to cover the cost of the volunteer‘s stay.  (This will be clearly marked on the host listing).
    We will strictly not allow listings posted by agents, “middle men” or projects who we feel are looking to profit from a volunteers stay.
