Nepal is in great need of volunteers from all over the world. It is one of the poorest countries in Asia, so they need help from abroad to make a change that will improve the communities’ living conditions.
Volunteers’ tasks are meant to ensure that the country develops sustainably without any interruptions, and that the Nepalese can enjoy an improvement in their quality of life. With Connecting Worlds Abroad, you will be able to be part of different programs that may involve teaching in schools and monasteries, assisting in clinics and hospitals, or helping farmers improve their cultivation and harvesting methods.
Being a volunteer in Nepal is not only a great opportunity to experience a different culture, but also to make friends, as many previous volunteers have stated how friendly and welcoming the local people are. It is also a one-time chance to challenge yourself just to enrich your wisdom, judgment and understanding of the world. Nepal offers all of this, as well as it allows volunteers to immerse into a complex society that is transitioning from a traditional and un-modernized culture, to a cosmopolitan one. It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to achieve valuable personal growth.
What’s included in our fair-cost policy?
All our programs include a fixed price Registration Fee of US$249 and a Program Fee that varies according to the duration of the program and the services included.
The Registration Fee covers the costs of all that Connecting Worlds has to do in order to organise the experience in an efficient manner and offer each participant a quality program. These costs include marketing, staff salaries, travel costs of staff who visit and inspect each of the programs on offer and Connecting Worlds’ solidarity fund among others. We need this fee just to sustain the organization.
The Program Fee is the total cost of everything related to the services that the volunteer will be able to take advantage of upon arrival to the destination of their choice. For example, accommodation, meals, transfers, the donation made to the volunteer project, welcome orientation and constant 24/7 support. The payment for this fee goes directly to the country in which the volunteer will be stationed, directly benefiting the local community. It’s a fee which helps organisations that work in the country associated with the program at hand to move forwards with their projects and generate work opportunities for the local community.
Thanks to our fair-cost policy, the volunteer benefits from not having to pay high fees and our local partners benefit from being able to invest in their projects and keep things moving forwards. Connecting Worlds also benefits from keeping the costs of its programs as low as possible because we get the opportunity to support local communities and make a difference in our own small but important way.
As part of this program, volunteers in Nepal work closely with Nepalese doctors and nurses in public hospitals located in Kathmandu or Pokhara. They have to be either medical professionals or students with proven knowledge in the field of medicine and health. To be able to join this program, volunteers must supply their most recent CV.
The main activities carried out by volunteers involve raising people’s awareness in relation to sanitary and other health-related issues. They will also assist locals by giving them advice, delivering medicines, and checking on them.
