Volunteering in Nepal is a deeply rewarding experience. Take on Nepal have been proudly arranging Nepali volunteering trips and placements, since 2012. One of our founders, Som Tamang, was born and raised in Nepal. While he now resides in Australia, with his Irish wife and three young children, he’s passionate about helping the people living in remote Himalayan villages. He is particularly focused on improving the life and education of village children, whilst providing volunteers with an enriching and enlightening experience in Nepal. Take on Nepal can co-ordinate and place adults and students on volunteering trips, manage and host high school expeditions and combine volunteering with trekking, for a truly unforgettable journey. For more information, contact Susan or Som at Take on Nepal today.

This is experiencing the real Nepal. You’ll be living alongside the locals, eating the same food they do and helping them with English language skills.

The villagers are very welcoming to foreigners and find themselves intrigued by all the gadgets they bring with them. iPads and cameras, lap-tops and Kindles are all foreign devices that are unfamiliar to people who still live in mud houses, without chimneys or proper furniture.

You won’t be alone during your stay here. Take on Nepal co-ordinate groups of volunteers to go together. In our experience, this leads to friendships that last a lifetime.

We have a team of people on the ground in Batase, locals who know the area inside out, as well as representatives from our Australian office who can help with any adjustment issues.

Take on Nepal work hard, to ensure your volunteering in Nepal experience is one you will never forget. Inspire, connect and engage.
