    On April 25th, a 7.8 earthquake hit Nepal near the capital city of Kathmandu, the worst of its kind in more than 80 years. More than 9,000 people were killed, a further 23,000 were injured and the mass destruction to infrastructure and homes was vast.

    We are currently working out of the Sindhuli district building three school buildings. Our school rebuild project is an overall effort to build new schools and repair partially damaged schools in remote locations across Nepal. No construction experience is required, and we have an experienced team of construction staff and team leaders who will ensure a safe, fun and positive volunteer experience.

  • Accommodation


    This is communal living at its finest. You’ll live together, work together and eat together with your fellow volunteers. Volunteers will primarly camp in tent spaces on base, but we have a limited amount of bunk beds, which are subject to availability. You will also have access to a basic kitchen and rustic bathrooms. There is no participation fee and we also cover the cost of three meals per day, on work days. You will be responsible for travel to and from the project, mandatory mental health breaks (minimum 3 nights away from base per 30 days), food on non-work days and other incidental expenses.
