  • Description


    I am Arjun Mani Guragain 54, enjoying our life with one son and a wife, working as a director of our NGO on a partial volunteer basis for the last six years. Before that, I was involved in many organizations to improve the status of children and women in Nepal for more than 22 years. Our NGOs provide limited scholarships for the continuation of school for the marginalized community, otherwise, they could marry at the age of 14-16 due to poverty. The area is a 7-9 hours drive from Kathmandu. The area is called "Mrigaulia" in Sundar Haraincha Municipality in Morang district.

    My wife is teaching for a master's in the Public Health Program at Purbanchal University, near our girl's project(eastern Nepal). She was the one who found this community through her student survey. She is one of the key people for the local contact person for the volunteer. The area is flat, hot and humid.
    So, we welcome volunteers over 23 years old, open, kind-hearted, have no self-interest, are vegetarians, are free from alcohol and drugs, respect local culture and heritage, and have no discrimination among beneficiaries.
    We encourage you to apply for 3 months or more.
