What is Voluntourism?

Put simply, you become a voluntourist when you decide to volunteer while on vacation. Instead of just touring a new place, you put your skills and experience to use in service to the people and country you’ve come to explore.


This experience gives you a deeper and more realistic perspective about the culture and affords the opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of the people you meet – giving your travels a far deeper and more meaningful purpose

Why Nepal?

Why Volunteer in Nepal?

Nepal is a country of sublime beauty in its scenery and cultural diversity. The astounding natural landscape, myriad of attractive activities, and the well-preserved and exotic cultures make this country one of the most compelling and exciting places in the world to visit.


Nepal is a place where visitors can make a meaningful impact, and gain so much at the same time. Whether called by adventure, spiritual growth, or the opportunity to give back, Nepal has much to offer.
