Live in the mountains of Nepal surrounded by the Himalayas and experience life as a local in this remote community. Help children in the small village schools to learn English and also enhance their curriculum with your skill set, whether you love drama, music, sports, art or whatever is your passion, use it to help broaden young minds and leave a lasting legacy from your year out. You will also have plenty of time to explore all that Nepal has to offer, visit the many temples, trek in the mountains, you could even climb to the Everest base camp!
Nepal is famous for backpackers and during your time there you will visit the bucket list sites of Kathmandu, the Pashupatinath Temple, the Boudanath Stupa and the ancient city of Pathan but when you travel with AV you also get to experience so much more.
Our volunteer programs put you at the centre of a rural mountainous community where you will live, work and play with the locals. We believe that young people have so much to offer and we help you put your skill set to good use. Help to improve the lives of the people you meet by teaching them the things you are most passionate about.
You will focus on helping local school children with their English work but you will also have plenty of time to indulge in extra curricular activities such as sports, drama, music and art. Tell us what you love doing and are good at and we will help you use your skills to enhance young lives. Our volunteers are welcomed in to the community from day one and you will quickly feel at home thanks to the fantastic spirit of the people you will meet.
At weekends our volunteers often visit the popular town of Pokhara where many choose to go paragliding and get a birds eye view of the incredible landscape. You may also wish to get up early and see the sunrise over Annapurna, a spectacular sight. After your volunteering time is over and you are ready to leave the community that has become your home, you will have four weeks of independent travel time to explore all that this stunning country has to offer but supported 24/7 by our local in country support team for peace of mind.
