Nepal volunteering globalongThe programme in Nepal :

The volunteer placements start every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month and last for between 3 and 12 weeks. You will be met at the airport in Kathmandu the day before.

So that culture shock is not too overwhelming, we organize an induction week, which includes learning vocabulary and Nepali culture.

This will hopefully help you avoid any awkwardness with the population.
