Location and duration
The FSN Nepal volunteer program has volunteer placements located in four main areas within Nepal – Kathmandu,Solukhumbhu,Dhading, Kavre, Chitwan, Chitlang and Pokhara. Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal, and placements here are located on the outskirts of the city in rural and urban areas. Chitwan is located approximately 150 kilometeres from Kathmandu, in the middle of Terrai, a flat fertile plain that borders India and stretches right across Southern Nepal. Chitlang is rural, about 2 hours drive from Kathmandu and accessed through tough terrain. It is located in mid-hills along the Mahabharat range, to the south west of Kathmandu valley. Pokhara is located in mid-western Nepal and is a popular tourist destination, renowned for its amazing mountain views.
The Nepal volunteer program begins on the first and third Monday of every month. Volunteers can choose to volunteer for periods ranging from 1 week to 12 weeks.
Short Term Volunteering If you wish to experience a taste of volunteering in Nepal, you can register for a special 1-week program. You will spend the first two days of your week participating in orientation, gaining a cultural insight into Nepal and learning the local language of Nepali. This will be followed by 3 days visiting different volunteer placements to gain an understanding of what it is like to volunteer. During this time you will also get a guided tour to different cultural and natural monument sites in Nepal. Please note the special 1 week program has a surcharge of US$80 to cover transport, meals at local restaurants, accommodation upgrade at a guesthouse, sightseeing entry fees, materials for volunteers to donate to placements (such as paint brushes, sporting goods, cleaning products etc). This surcharge is paid directly to our local staff once you have arrived to the program.
