About Nepal

When you volunteer in Nepal with Challenges Abroad you’ll be surrounded by the natural beauty of the Kathmandu Valley, with incredible mountain ranges everywhere you turn. Our volunteers are based at our hub in the Kathmandu Valley, a rural town in the valley surrounded by more than six World Heritage sites! In your spare time from volunteering you’ll be able to visit these sites, explore the town and go on some amazing walks through the countryside.


You will also have some time to visit Kathmandu, only about 30km from the Kathmandu Valley. Visiting the capital city is an incredible experience, with sights, sounds and smells like nothing you’ll have ever encountered before. From the amazing monuments and temples in the old town to the chill, backpacker district of Thamel, you’ll be able to use your time when you’re not volunteering to relax, unwind and soak in the vibrant culture and history.


Volunteer programs in Nepal

Despite its richness of culture and popularity as a trekking destination, Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world. Many communities live in strained circumstances and lack access to quality healthcare, education and income generation opportunities, which is why we need you to help us make a change.

You can choose from a range of volunteering programs to make your impact with Challenges Abroad in Nepal, including:


Make an ethical impact when volunteering in Nepal

You will be volunteering with our charity, the FutureSense Foundation, when you’re in Dhulikhel. Our FutureSense Nepal team are based here year-round and work hand-in-hand with the community to make sure that our volunteer programs are meeting current needs and are part of a long-term plan that aligns with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This model ensures that our volunteers can make a contribution that will have an ongoing, positive impact in the community.


We are committed to delivering ethical and sustainable volunteer programs in Nepal and around the world, while safeguarding the children that we work with and fostering global citizenship. Visit the FutureSense website to learn more about our sustainable development projects in Nepal.
