EHN aims to improve the level of education, healthcare, and childcare in Nepal by connecting volunteers to positions where they can support and teach in rural and urban areas of the country.
What We Need
Teachering, Childcare, Medical students, Rural Farming, and some construction for rebuilding homes destroyed in the earthquakes.
Free Health camp volunteers, Disabled daycare center volunteers, Short term medical internships,
When & Who
Schools are closed for one month from March to April and then again from June to July.
Building projects will only run from November to March to avoid the monsoon rains.
Free health camps run mostly in the summer months of July and August
What we Provide
All EHN projects require the volunteer to stay with a family while volunteering and in a guesthouse when in Kathmandu.
The meals are mostly rice and vegetables twice a day EVERY day. It is a simple way of life but, for us, it's both eco-friendly and beautiful.
£15 a day (about $19/day) covers accommodation and 2 meals a day at the project location.
Volunteers are required to pay a £80 (about $106) admin fee which is used for the first 2 nights in KTM plus the last night, food, accommodation, and a city tour.
More Services we Offer
All volunteers are expected to do their own laundry which will be by hand and please be aware all water is cold in Nepali villages including showers!
EHN will pick up the volunteer from the airport and provide 2 nights accommodation with food and a city tour before sending them to their project.
Other Ways to Help
Pens, Pencils, Rubbers, Rulers, First Aid equipment and supplies
Additional Info about Us
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.
