PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

The rural communities that we work with in and around the Kathmandu Valley face a range of health issues. There is limited knowledge about basic first aid, hygiene and sanitation, disease transmission, non-communicable diseases, diet and nutrition. What this means is that children are missing out on school and parents are missing out on work because they are falling ill from preventable illnesses. On top of this, there is low mental health awareness and bullying remains a significant problem in Nepali schools, contributing to high drop out rates.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

We work with the community on a range of projects that aim to improve community health, and you will get to work on these hands-on when you volunteer with us. The projects you could be working on include:

  • Basic first aid training for students and teachers

  • Educational workshops at local schools and in the community focusing on key health issues

  • Delivering a bullying awareness campaign in local schools

  • Creating an educational mural at a local school 

 

PROGRAM STRUCTURE

When you arrive in Nepal you’ll be met by our team at the airport. Over the next few days you’ll have a thorough induction and orientation where you’ll learn about Nepalese customs and culture, get your bearings around town, meet community partners and gain a better understanding of the context of the projects you’re working on

Over two weeks, you’ll work in the community Monday - Friday with your weekend free to travel and explore. Your day will usually be structured with a morning session (approx. 3 hours) after breakfast and then a session of the same length after lunch. Your afternoons and evenings will be free for you to relax or do any required planning for the next day.

On the last day, you’ll either be transported back to the airport or you can join our extension trip trek, more information can be found by downloading the challenge pack.
