Volunteering is one of the most rewarding and heartfelt things that you can do; not only for yourself but also for the people you are helping along the way. Participating in a volunteer program in Nepal gives you a wonderful and unique opportunity to live and interact with a local family, gaining firsthand insight into the culture and customs of this Himalayan kingdom. Not only that, but you get to play a significant role in aiding small communities to gain an edge in education. It’s often the case in poor rural areas that education is under funded. By volunteering in a school, you are offering your teaching experience and your English-speaking ability to help educate children as well as teachers. Along your journey, you will form many lifelong friendships and have memories that you will be able to share with your grandchildren. By donating your time and experience, you are giving more than money or words can express; the joy in the children’s faces will communicate more thanks to you than a thousand words could ever express.
