Namaste, my name is Prem Tamang, I live in a small rural community close to Nagarkot, called Dhadagaun.
I run the community clinic that provides primary health services, medicines and first aid for the people in my community and the surrounding area with no cost.
After the earthquake in 2015, all the houses and the clinic were destroyed. We have been these years rebuilding all houses and the clinic, making a big effort all together.
The cost of materials for building and medical supplies for the clinic are difficult to afford for us, so I had the idea to build a homestay to allow everybody interested to know our culture and way of living, and use some of the incomes to fund the clinic and other community needs for development.
Also, there is a primary school (first class to eight class) that would need help with english, science and maths. We would really appreciate that. It is a government school with 120 kids, eight teachers and a great view from himalayas.

Volunteers will be living with my family and will feel our daily live in the rural community, surrounded by nature.
They will eat local food and can learn if interested in how to cook it.
Also we can exchange language learning, and information of our culture and and life style.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We would need many different kinds of help.
We will need volunteers that can help in building for our homestay.
Also people that can teach in our community school.
Another kind of volunteering will be people with skills in health area like doctors, nurses or dentist.
Engineers, organic farming/gardening or any skill that help in any area of rebuilding the community will be also welcomed, all kind of help will be great for us.
By now we can provide simple accomodation in my family house while my new homestay is being built to welcome everyone in the nearest future.
The volunteer will have its own private room outside of our house, just 10 meters away of it. It will be a simple, clean and safe room with one bed, a table and a chair. Toilet will be just beside the room.
