Positions for volunteering opportunities:

We have volunteering opportunities for students, experts, non-professionals and people from all walks of life. The volunteers need to pay all charges depending upon their stay with us. During their stay, they will be integrated within the Nepalese families. For recreational activities, there are many places that you could visit around the Pokhara valley, including hiking, paragliding, parahawking, zipper move, boating etc. For interested ones, trekking could be organized for a week-long on Mount Annapurna Himalaya (from Pokhara to Jomson) from where the beautiful panorama of the spectacular Himalayas can be lavished. We welcome people of all walks of life, either alone or in groups and they can get involved in close coordination with various activities like English teaching in schools and organization, craft production section, fundraising and other organizational developmental issues. Moreover, professionals from medical sectors are also highly appreciated. All visitors may participate and enjoy all that the Nepali culture offers.

Also, the recent devastating earthquake forced many people to remain hopeless and homeless. People who wish to help these people directly could act as a volunteer to boost the confidence of the victims suffering from these catastrophes. Remarkably, we are working with the children that are the worst victims of these disasters.
