Focus: Community, Education and Orphanages.
INFO Nepal is a non-government organization (NGO), whose mission is to provide volunteers with a customized program that will enable them to make an important contribution to the people of Nepal. In the past 12 years we have placed over 5000 volunteers around various parts of Nepal within host families and orphanages. Our placements include Volunteer at Orphan home, teaching English, elective medical volunteer, environmental awareness and local community projects. INFO has established 14 Children's resource centres and also helps with the funding of over 10 orphanages around the Kathmandu Valley, Chitwan and in Pokhara.
Here at INFO we ensure that all volunteers are provided with a safe, enriching and very rewarding experience. Our flexible approach means that you will be given a placement to suit your individual needs and availability. Other benefits that INFO volunteers enjoy include discounted rates to many Nepali attractions such as Trekking, Rafting, Bungee Jumping, Jungle Safari, Mountain Flights and much more!
Costs & Benefits
Upon their arrival, volunteers are provided with 3 days to a week of training program. This is a rigorous training program to introduce you to Nepali culture, understand enough Nepali language to function in a village where few English speakers live, and prepare you for the possibility of living in a home with very basic facilities.
Upon completion of this training, volunteers may have one day in Kathmandu before they are taken to their placement villages.
Volunteers can participate in any of the following programs throughout our communities. In some cases, it is possible to blend certain programs together.
Assisting at Orphanage Homes; Teaching English; Teaching at the Monastery; Community building and school contraction projects; Environmental & Sanitation Awareness; Home-stay and Cultural Programs; Work in a Disabled Care Facility; Primary Health Care and Medical Program; Develop Income Generating Programs and Administrative Support.
