PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

Experience the very best Nepal has to offer this summer! Volunteer in the local community on a range of projects aimed at improving education quality in the Kathmandu Valley. You'll be challenged to step out of your comfort zone and think creatively as you're immersed in the incredible local culture.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

We believe that education is the key to ending the poverty cycle. As a community challenge volunteer you will be helping us drive forward our long-term education goals in our community. Volunteering at one of our partner schools, you will be designing and delivering hands-on workshops that supplement the rigid government curriculum and get children excited about going to school.

You could be focusing on:

  • Conversational English

  • STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths)

  • Creative Arts

  • Environmental Awareness

You will also have the chance to volunteer on a renovation project with the aim of creating a safer and more inspiring learning environment. You could be painting an educational mural, renovating a playground, creating a library, installing a hand-washing station and more!

Your volunteering days will be Monday-Friday with the weekends free to do your own travel. We recommend heading to Kathmandu and exploring all that this amazing city has to offer, including Swayambhunath, Boudhanath temple and the bustling night life of Thamel!

EXTEND YOUR TRIP

After your programme you can join our optional extension trip for £599, where you’ll embark on the epic 5-day Poon-Hill Trek. Beginning in Pokhara, you'll have an afternoon to stroll around the lakeside city before getting ready to start your trek the following day. You'll pass through picturesque mountain villages, lush forests and small streams as you make your way to the Poon Hill summit - 3200m above sea level. The Poon Hill lookout has the most incredible panoramic views of the Annapurna ranges that you'll be lucky enough to see at sunrise before beginning your descent, fresh on the knowledge you just trekked into the highest mountain range in the world!

Join Challenges Abroad to make an impact in Nepal and become a global citizen.

It’s time to be part of something bigger.

Your journey starts here.

COVID- 19: GIVING YOU PEACE OF MIND

To deal with the uncertainty that comes with COVID-19, we have introduced the following guarantees so you can confidently book your volunteer programme today.

COVID-19 REASSURANCE

Although we are confident that programmes will go ahead as planned, if your programme is affected by Covid-19 travel restrictions, your programme will be postponed to the following year, and your fundraising deadlines will be extended. 

DESTINATION FLEXIBILITY

We are continuously monitoring the advice of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and speaking with our teams on the ground to ensure we are fully aware of all on-going situations. Although we expect all travel restrictions to be lifted by Summer 2021, if your destination is affected by coronavirus travel restrictions, you will be able to move your programme to one of our other destinations 

ADDITIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY MEASURES

Our volunteer's health and safety whilst overseas is our biggest priority. We are putting in place additional measures to enhance health and safety practices when travel resumes. Some of these measures include increased cleaning at our accommodation, reducing the number of volunteers sharing bathroom facilities, mandatory hand-washing before meals and an in-depth review of all in-country risk management processes.
