Meet and greet volunteers and take them on a city tour and shoppng if required. On group based projects staff will accompany volunteers to run health camps, school painting projects and group bookings. We are also there for help should any volunteer require it so we advise all volunteers to bring a mobile phone so they can get a local simm card for their time in Nepal

Education and Health Nepal is a 3-year-old charity working with local government schools and child care projects in Nepal. We believe that working in government schools rather than private schools translates to helping the less advantaged children obtain a better level of education for free.

Education and Health Nepal is a registered Non-Profit in both Nepal and the UK.
