I will be happy to show you my beautiful city and all the area in your (and mine) free time! There are a lot of things to see here: an ancient historical city (you can find some photographs if you google our city’s name). And I will be happy to teach you Nepalí if you are interested in.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Since March of 2015 we are looking for volunteers to help us in our Government schools and Schools for disabled people here in Bhaktapur! (It is a new project). The Government schools are completely public and totally free of charge for students and this is precisely the reason why they only assist the poorest people in the city. They always need and appreciate any help they can get, these are some ways you could help them:
- You can help drawing nice paintings on the walls of the school
- You can help by teaching English to the kids (their level is not really good)
- You can help us creating a website or blog for the school.
- There is no hardware equipment in the school so if you have any old computer and you can bring it here it would be perfect for the kids to acquaint them with computer science and technology
- If you have any musical instrument you could show them it would be very useful for the kids to learn music from other cultures.
The Government provides them with some course books and some simple clothes but they have no games and they only have very basic and rudimentary school material like pencils or reference books.
You also can help for baby caring and
farming too with local families
If you could contribute in any degree they would be extremely grateful.
This host offers a language exchange
This host has indicated that they are interested in sharing their own language or learning a new language.
You can contact them directly for more information.
For the accommodation, you will be more than welcome in my house or my sister’s house. We will offer you a separate room and sharing kitchen and occidental toilet (and if you want we have a latrine too). You will be able to take a cold or hot shower (as you want)!
About the food, we give you the opportunity for you to eat with my family and myself in a traditional way (on the floor and with the hands) but if you have any problem with that, we also have tables and silverware. We eat a small breakfast at 7am (usually tea and some bread) and then a big breakfast (dal bhat) at 9.30am before going to work at 10am. The school provides a snack at 1pm approximately and then dinner is at 7pm at my house (dal bhat again). There is no need for you to bring a sleeping bag as we provide any blankets you may need. The temperature is about 32C on summer and 14C on winter. We boil water every day for drinking purposes and you can drink as much as you want.
We ask to you to help us with 500NPR/day (aprox. 5 US Dollars) for your accommodation.
If you are interested, please write me an email and I will give you my home address and mobile phone number. There are a lot of buses every hour from Kathmandu to Bhaktapur. You can choose if you want to take a local bus (charging 35NPR) or a tourist bus (a little more expensive).
Thank you very much,

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.
