Summer Volunteer in Asia Nepal

HFN has organized a summer volunteer travel program for the summer of 2016 which involves an exciting cultural journey in the heart of Nepal Kathmandu. The journey will start in Kathmandu with an orientation, followed by volunteering work with an orphanage, volunteers then move on to teaching English to children with mental and physical disabilities for 2 weeks. Volunteers work in and stay at the orphanage placements where they spend time with disadvantaged children. This involves working 5 days a week performing the many tasks needed to run the orphanage and care for the children.
During the Volunteer in an Orphanage Opportunity, most volunteers enjoy work and travel vacations, which in the Summer Program include a weekend tour to some of the most popular tourist attractions in and around Kathmandu.
