We are a young, friendly family and our house is located in the quiet and cozy area of Swayambhu. We live 5 minutes from the Monkey temple, one of the most famous and popular tourist attractions in town. I am Nischal and I live with my father Sundar, my mother Sita and my younger sister Prakriti. We all live together in a lovely house, working and managing our shop and garden. We live in a less polluted area of Kathmandu, ideal for those people looking for a nice and quiet place a little bit out from the busy city center. We are just 30 minutes by foot from Thamel and from our place you can easily catch any buses heading all around Kathmandu, Nepal (Pokhara, Chitwan...) and India. I also have a guitar/ukulele that I would love to share.
Swayambhu is surrounded by nice hills where it is possible to go hiking with us, and our relatives and friends. Nearby, you can also visit White Gumba and a few ancient monasteries. We will be more than happy to show you around and advise you on any questions you may have.
We are very easy-going and friendly people. We are looking for volunteers who are interested in learning things based on the Nepali culture, such as: our way of living, our language and our habits. A little help (tasks like gardening/farming, cooking, cleaning) from our volunteers would be highly appreciated (nothing too complicated though).

Experience living with a local family, and see what it is really like to live like a local. They will be able to learn about our customs, language, and stories directly from locals, and get a chance to see nearby sites. In addition, we can provide guidance and information to any questions they may have about trekking or touring in and outside Kathmandu.
Volunteers participate in the daily life of the house as well as getting familiar with our neighborhood. Never mind if you stay for few weeks the most important is that you feel home and become part of it.
Farming, teaching some English, cooking and preparing the family daily meals or helping us with some simple daily works, will let you to be part of our family, which means learning our way of living.
In family home. sharing is caring. we would really appreciate if our volunteers can share what ever we provied.

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.
