    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    With this volunteering experience you will get a chance to learn about running a business for tourists. I will help volunteers to see Nepal and travel here as locals and I am willing to share my knowledge about Nepal from very practical to cultural points. I know all of the best places to hang out and see the city and I can share my experience of all the best local eateries.

    Help

    - Artists and anybody who could help with decoration and has creative ideas. Artists who can paint murals or sections of the building are very welcome.
    - Marketing professionals or anyone with related experience
    - Garden or landscapers- I need help with converting an old un-used swimming pool into a garden grotto for a chill out space, this will be a very fun and different project to contribute to!
    - Web-developers who can give us training how WordPress works and help with creating the website.
    - Carpenters/Wood work- Anyone with experience in building or using wood to make furniture is greatly appreciated.
    - Anyone with experience running a business/start-up hostel and can share their knowledge or experience in such matters.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    For the hostel I have rented a big 5 floor house with LOTS of potential, it is in a good condition but still needs some decorative touches to be ready for guests. Volunteers be provided with accommodation in a dorm room of 6 beds and in cases of long hours also be provided with food.

    It will be a fun environment as we all will be staying like a team and helping each other with the project.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We will be working in the heart of Kathmandu so volunteers will be close to Thamel and famous historical monuments of the city. Volunteers will be able to use their time-off to explore all the sights. There are various transportation links around our place and I will be open to help with any other questions.
    If I am available, I could take volunteers to show the sights and nightlife of Kathmandu on weekends.
