Volunteers generally stay with a local host family but if they are working in an orphanage they usually stay in the orphanage and volunteers working at the monastery stay at the monastery. Nepali people are extremely hospitable and volunteers will be well looked after ; however the accommodation will be typically Nepali and therefore basic by Western standards. Toilets and showers are usually Nepali style, and the electricity supply in many places can be unreliable. Most of our homestay families have lots of previous experience in looking after volunteers. All volunteers are given their own single room.
Based on Nepalese dining customs, the host provides two major meals a day plus two tea and snack breaks. Tea is served around 7 am. Brunch is served around 9 to 10 am and is usually typical Nepalese food, dal/bhat (rice, lentils, and vegetables). Tea is served again at around 2 pm with local snacks. Dinner is at around 7 to 8 pm. The food is very simple but also extremely tasty and filling. In addition, it is possible to purchase other food items if required.
The number of hours worked by volunteers will depend upon the placement. The Nepali working week is from Sunday – Friday with Saturday being the only day off. Volunteers work between 3-5 hours per day with the opportunity to work more if they choose. Times for each placement vary, when working in children’s homes and the library volunteers will teach and help the children in the morning before school and for a few hours after school. Hours are approximately 7-9am and 4-6pm. However these are just approximations, as we try and tailor the hours to the needs of the children.
We offer 3 days to 5 days of orientation and training at our office, depending on the type of programs. These trainings help volunteers to understand our organization, various programs and opportunities, country, Nepali language and culture, safety measures, visa issues, dos and don’ts, etc. During the orientation and training period in Kathmandu, we arrange placements in local host families within walking distance of Thamel. This provides them an introduction to Nepalese family, language and culture.
