My Reviews

Amazing organization with many opportunities

"Human Harmony Nepal is doing such important things for a village that is in desperate need of help. The experience and knowledge I received is unprecedented and the avenues in which someone can volunteer are many. If you are passionate about helping women, teaching, agriculture, growing a business, writing policy... there are so many different ways you can lead in this NGO. We lead daily workshops and training sessions in the field and also work behind the scenes trying to grow the NGO. I was really lucky to have found Human Harmony Nepal and get to experience the life of a Nepali. It is an amazing experience and you will leave with a deeper appreciation for serving and the knowledge to do so.
