PROGRAM OVERVIEW

On this volunteer challenge you will spend two weeks in the Kathmandu Valley volunteering on a range of health promotion interventions aimed at increasing community awareness of key health issues. You'll be challenged to step out of your comfort zone and think creatively while being part of a long-term solution to improving overall community health.

 

who can volunteer?

If you're studying or have work experience in a field related to nursing, medicine, allied healthcare, public health, biomedicine or science, our Nepal Health Promotion Challenge is perfect for you! 

 

what you'll be doing

You will be volunteering with local community members including school children, teachers and parents to deliver health workshops focusing on important health topics like hygiene and sanitation, human anatomy and bodily function, diet and nutrition, mental health, girls and women’s health and non-communicable diseases. These workshops will play a big role in increasing the overall health of the community, as locals will receive the knowledge they need to keep themselves and their families healthy.

 

weekly structure

Following an induction and orientation when you arrive, your volunteering days will be Monday-Friday with the weekend free to do your own travel. We recommend heading to Kathmandu to explore the densest concentration of UNESCO World Heritage sites and get lost in the city’s winding streets full of delicious food and wonderful culture! 

 

Extend your volunteer trip

After your volunteer program you can join our optional extension trip for $800, where you’ll embark on the epic 5-day Poon Hill trek! Beginning in Pokhara, you'll have an afternoon to stroll around the lakeside city before getting ready to start your trek the following day. You'll pass through picturesque mountain villages, lush forests and small streams as you make your way to the Poon Hill summit - 3200m above sea level. The Poon Hill lookout has the most incredible panoramic views of the Annapurna ranges that you'll be lucky enough to see at sunrise before beginning your descent, fresh on the knowledge you just trekked into the highest mountain range in the world!
