  • Description


    Located in one of the neighbourhoods of Kathmandu, we founded a English Boarding school in 1995 with only 15 students. Currently, we provide education to almost 150 students between 4 and 14 years old.

    No matter where the kids are from, or which status their parents have, everyone should have a chance for receiving good education. The aim is keeping the monthly school fee as low as possible and providing scholarships on the cases that is needed (currently a third of the students are free of charge). The school is also a home for 15 children whose parents are not able to take care of them.

    But after everything that has already been achieved, we do not stop dreaming. We want every kid in Nepal to have a chance at a better life. This starts with a good education.

  • Accommodation


    We offer accommodation and food in our house in exchange for your help. We will provide you a room and a shared bathroom. We also host 15 children whose parents are not able to take care of them.
    We cook traditional nepali dishes for you everyday during your stay.
    Our home is located next to the school.

    We ask volunteers to pay a small sum of 5 US dollars a day to stay here. This cost includes three meals (mostly Dal Bhat and mainly vegetarian) boiled/filtered water, cold shower and WiFi. Please note that the served food is basic, however you are able to stock up on extra items at the local stores and small local eateries a short walk from the house.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are located in the neighbourhood of Balaju Heights, which is in the western part of Kathmandu near Swayambhunath (the monkey temple), one of the most famous temples in Kathmandu. The airport is in eastern Kathmandu and we recommend taking a taxi from the airport to our house. We can send a driver to pick you up at the airport with a private vehicle for 10 US Dollars. Other volunteers have really enjoyed this option as the Kathmandu airport and streets can be busy and confusing.
