Volunteers must be 18 or above to participate in this program. But if you are underage, either your parents should accompany you or give permission.

Nepal is one of the developing countries where poverty and political instability have been a rising issue for a very long period of time. Proper education and awareness has barely reached the people in villages and outer city areas. Most of the people are poor and have a large family to take care of. During volunteering opportunity for a month long period you will encounter many children in Nepal that are homeless as their family sometimes abandon them. People who aren’t able to earn a livelihood for themselves give birth to multiple children and leave them in the street to live an unfortunate life.

So, to help the innocent children in need of a shelter, love and care, there are many orphanage projects that are on offer in Nepal. IFRE alone works with eight orphanages throughout the country and supports their activities by making donations and arranging volunteers.

By joining the low cost volunteering program for one month, you will engage in teaching English, offer knowledge regarding personal hygiene and organize various extra-curricular activities. You can also assist people at the orphanage in preparing and serving meals, helping with the administrative tasks and other work.
