  • Description



    I am Gagan from Nepal working as motivator and farmer near Kathmandu. My father, mother, me, my wife and my little sister are working together at our farm. My father and mother are former English teacher. My wife is registered nurse while my sister is studying at grade 10. All of us are well educated so we can talk good English.

    We ranted some land here where we grow organic vegetables (100% pesticcide free). Also, we are about to start organic fish and duck farming. In case of sick, we use plant and typical traditional methods. You can also volunteering at our school near by our farm, where you get chance to interact with lots of kids from different relegions of Nepal.

    At a glance, while volunteering with us you will be experiencing organic vegetable and fish farming, typical Nepali culture, food and daily lifestyle and wonderful time with kids at school.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Because our village is non-touristy village so the general living standards are lower than in Western countries. The volunteers who enjoy their time with us are adaptable, flexible and self-motivated. There are lots of little educational or maintenance/building projects you can get involved in, and we are very welcoming, however if this is your first time traveling to Nepal and want to know the real Nepal then our village is the right choice for you!

    You can say this is your chance to explore real Nepal and Nepali lifestyle with Nepali culture.

    In Nepal.... With Nepali.... Being Nepali......

  • Help


    Currently we have an organic vegetable farm and planning to start a fish farm soon so we need help with farming also for building fish ponds as well .Also we need charity for poor kids at school so we can provide 100% scholarships to them because lots of Nepali people are still poor and they can't afford good education to their children and the truth is without education they can't get up from their poor background. We provide some scholarships but still there are lots of kids whose family can't afford the school fee so if you helping with charity then we can provide more and more scholarships to the needy kids.

    You can also help us on our project by fund raising campaign in your country. If you want to support us by funding campaign, let us know so we can provide you details for fundraising purposes.

    How to reach to us:

    We are 33 Kms far from capital Kathmandu, that is one hour bus travel from Kathmandu. You need to get off at Jugekhola. Its on the way to Pokhara. After getting to Jugekhola, you can make a call to me and after, you will move to our organic farm for your good stay. Its 10 minutes walking distance from Jugekhola on hillside.

    You can find local buses from Kathmandu to farm easily. From Kalanki, the bus fair costs less than 1$ per person. We are only 1 hour from Kathmandu so it is easy to go for a day during your stay. After bus, you have to walk for 10 minutes to reach to our farm.

    Mostly Volunteers who visited and work at our farm left happily. I can proudly say we are your next family in Nepal. You can feel here as your own home working and helping your own family members.
    Here, you can do a Jungle safari, one day cultural trek, meditation under peaceful Banyan (A big Cultural prayer tree) and this all you can do for free.

    We are about 1200M from sea level, with amazing view and very fantastic sunset view as well. We (all my family) are curious for know about new things, new culture and new way of talking as well. We also have some no working days so you can go for a day trek or village visit or Shower on Spring.
