Greetings, Namaste from Kathmandu, Nepal
I am Shiva. I am a government licensed holder mountain guide, city tour guide as well as a tour operator. I am originally from a village near Gorkha in the western part of Nepal. I have been working full time for the better tourism services with all my savings for the last two years. I would like to organize some 'Treks and Tours' for the sake of poor/orphan children and the reconstruction of my village, at Gorkha.
There are many children from the underprivileged group seeking for help as well as for educational materials, clothes and food, mostly after the earthquake of April 2015. The Volunteers would also be able to come with me and visit the village to experience and see by themselves their inhabitants reality, I would also like to encourage the volunteers to study and help the community as you wish.
I also need volunteers who could help me improving my website (SEO experts are really welcome) and social media and also help with web promotion, writing blogs and fund raising for the sake of poor children. Anyone who would like to volunteer with me is welcome! I’m also open to new ideas for my project.
Important: I have been offering FREE WALKING TOUR KATHMANDU everyday (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday) at 9:00 am in the morning and at 2:00 pm in the evening, two different shifts in the same day. Anyone can contact me to enjoy the free walking tour starting from Garden of Dreams, at Thamel (in front of SAARC office) to Monkey Temple.
Thank you very much.

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Travelers learn the typical Nepalese way of living, ritual activities and Nepali language. They can enjoy our festivals and can also learn when they visit historical sites with a license holder guide, they get more knowledge about Nepali culture, tradition, art and architecture. I can also teach the volunteer about meditation and the different techniques.
Volunteer can take these responsibility:
= Advertising (online) help and increase social media presence
= Communication with clients after one week training. Looking for clients in internet, website, forum, blog and ... ...
= Handling some administrative tasks
= Participating different cultural activities, local tour, program visit,
We provide free accommodation in a separate room. We also provide simple Nepali food and light snacks with a cup of tea, however we ask for a small donation for your food (whatever does your heart feels). Volunteers feel 100% safe with our family.
Volunteers can also go to hiking nearby where we are living. They can go for heritage site tours with license holder trekking, city tour guide. They can go to do meditation nearby retreat center or with me. They can go for nature walk and village tours.
