The magic begins when you commence your descent into Kathmandu Airport. You will be welcomed with the spectacular views of the Himalayas! See a different side of Nepal through this unique challenge providing health education to the youth of Nepal as well as the wider community, at the same time helping to improve conversational English. Nepal faces many development challenges including the poor healthcare and health education offered to children, youth and women.
This is a placement that will also give you the opportunity to develop your own skills in healthcare in a meaningful and impactful way. You will inspire a curious audience through teaching and facilitating health workshops.
Through our programme we aim to address the increasing health disparities among children and adolescents of marginalised communities. We work collaboratively with our local partners to develop programmes, which take a long term and holistic view of improving the health of disadvantaged communities. The positive effects of this exceptional programme will be immediately evident during your stay in Nepal.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience in the school. Teaching is a passion of mine, so it was incredibly rewarding to make that difference to children in Nepal. The experience enabled me to build upon my own skills, including teamwork and resilienceVolunteer - Keeley - Nepal
The Nepalese students had a big impact on me. Getting to know them in such a developmental phase of their life has taught me so much about their country and its culture, and about people in general. I am struck dumb by their energy and resilience.Volunteer - Nyree - Nepal
