Teachers, Child care, Medical students, Rural Farming and some construction for rebuilding homes destroyed in the earthquakes.
Most of the projects run all year but will be closed for festivals. Schools are closed for one month March to April and then again June to July. Building projects will only run from Nov to March to avoid the monsoon rains.
There is a minimum stay of 2 weeks for childcare and 1 month for teaching. Long term volunteers come for about 5 months.
£12 a day covers accommodation and 2 meals a day at the project location.
The meals are mostly rice and vegetables twice a day EVERY day. It is a simple way of life but for us both eco friendly and beautiful
All EHN projects require the volunteer to stay with a family while volunteering but when in Kathmandu they will stay in a guesthouse.
Volunteers are required to pay an £80 admin fee which is used for the first 2 nights in KTM plus the last night, food, accommodation and a city tour.
Education and Health Nepal is a 3 year old charity working with local government schools and child care projects in Nepal. We feel that by working the government schools rather than private means we are helping the less advantaged children obtain a better level of education for free.
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. 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!
