I was teaching English in a primary school and helping in an orphanage in Chitwan. The work in the orphanage included helping kids with homework, weeding in the garden and helping in the kitchen. Overall, the experience was very positive. While teaching in the school is far from easy (kids and disobedient), you can feel it is valuable for them: local teachers don't teach English well. Helping orphans with homework also requires some patience but in return you can feel their love.

In the evenings I organized computer classes for kids using my small laptop. And the best memories are from doing handicrafts from paper with them on Christmas Eve.

The host family was from middle or even upper-middle class with good facilities. They were super friendly and treated my like their own daughter. Very tasty food. Only small disadvantages were frequent electricity outages, absence of hot shower and quite low temperatures in the room at night, but those are realities of Nepalese life.

The only improvement points for RCDP are to improve communication with the local school. The teaching hours were not from 10 to 4pm as RCDP told me but from 10 to 1pm. Also, I wasn't informed the school would have 10 days of exams and holidays during my stay, when I wasn't needed and had to do gardening work instead of teaching.

I really enjoyed my stay in Nepal, all the people I met here that were involved in the organisation were so helpful and kind. I stood in the Nepal Mary Child Help Center near Balaju in an orphanage where 15 children are living. I really felt comfortable with them after such a short time and I dont want to miss that time. They taught me so much without even knowing. It was really one of the best times I've ever had and RCDP made it possible and everything went well and I could really trust them that they care for me! Danyabaad for everything!

I really enjoyed my volunteering Project in Nepal. Everything went well, the project and transportation was all well organized. The people I worked with were very kind and caring. I was able to get to know the Nepalese culture very well by being hosted by a local host family. The food was very tasty :) The work at the orphanage's plantation was hard but also quite fun. Working together with the gardeners was very rewarding and I learnt a lot from them. I can totally recommend RCDP Nepal for a volunteering project.
