    Aloha! Volunteers

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As it is a Himalayan home-stay, it provides the volunteers an opportunity to embrace cultural diversity. A chance to learn more about the rural Himalayan nature and the lifestyle of locals.

    A chance to meet other volunteers.

    A life skill that is self dependence. Management skill; as the volunteer will manage a home-stay in and out (of course with our help).

    As we conduct workshops as well in the lap of the Himalayas, the volunteer will have a chance to learn about the subject the workshop is being conducted on.
