Absolutely incredible life changing experience. Being completely immersed in the culture really made me reassess my values and perspective in life. I stayed with the most beautiful welcoming family and felt right at home.

I chose 3 different programs in Nepal kathmandu that I liked. And I asked “A broader View” where I was most needed. One of which was the home for orphan girls I would go to work from 7:00 am -10:00 (30) am in the morning and this time I would help the girls with homework, eat with them, make sure they got dressed with enough time to get to school then walk with them to school. In the evening I would teach crafts; such as bracelet/Jewelry making, drawing & sewing then 4:00 – 7:00pm is direction time. They will sing, pray, read from the bible, pray again & try to get you to stay for dinner which works sometimes since they are so sweet & excited.

I wanted to volunteer through a nonprofit organization based in the USA, Abroaderview was such an organization. They had a program in Nepal a country in a part of the world & had never visited & always wanted to see.
Nepal is a fascinating country. I enjoyed visiting the different sections of Kathmandu. I traveled to Lumbini and Chitwan & saw mountains, rice paddies, forest, and interesting towers.
The program that I chose was the teaching/Education and library programs. My Nepal coordinator, upon meeting me changed my school assignment to a more challenging one; I got to interact with more students both able-bodied & physically challenged. The teacher I was assigned to was most welcoming & allowed me to use the techniques I used as an ESL teacher in the states. The library program was a lot of fun. It gathered together children of different ages from the local community. We did many creative activities.
The accommodation was comfortable, clean and neat. It was near public transportation, a restaurant, and convenience store.
The host family was wonderful, a father, mother, 4 yrs old son, grandmother & grandfather. They did everything possible to make my stay a pleasant one. I felt very safe.
Roads & Traffic may not be what you’re used to. People have different ways of doing things. Go with the flow.
The weather was hot but not hotter than NYC. Cools downs at night. I slept comfortably. It was the beginning of the monsoon so be prepared for rain & mud.

I choose Nepal because I wanted something out of my element. It’s a beautiful country and the people are amazing. I love special needs work and these kids are just amazing to work with!. The disable center is worth the 25-hour flights to get to Kathmandu. These kids are just everything to me now. They’ve impacted my life and I am so so sad to leave. It is the most fulfilling, fun experience I’ve had volunteering. They were worth every can.

I enjoyed my time in Nepal a lot. I connected with the host family and spent most of my days at the Monastery with the nuns (It’s an experience that I would always remember in my heart). The local coordinator treated me like I was one of his own children with open arms. The teachers and nuns appreciate my help with teaching English to them even though I can’t speak Nepali. I had gone to two weddings, which I never been to one before in Kathmandu. I’ve experienced the local family community of Nepal and the experience to teach Buddhist nuns, which not many people can say. Something I couldn’t do in normal life in America.

Participating in the program was the second time I had the opportunity to volunteer in Nepal so I wasn't expecting much difference from the previous organization I went with; however, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the program.

The living conditions were better than I expected. There was everything from a clean bed and bathroom to room service and laundry services available at request. We were well fed and all of the food served at the hotel was delicious. The staff at the Prince Hotel were also extremely friendly and accommodating to our needs.

The people I met were also very friendly. I was also surprised by the many different backgrounds of the volunteers that volunteered alongside me. There were students from all over the world that came to participate and it was a joy learning to communicate in their languages and making foreign friends.

If I have the time and opportunity, I would definitely partake in the program again. I give this program my highest recommendation for those who want to help others while visiting a foreign country.

RCDP Nepal

Hello and Namaste to all the volunteers who would like to come to Nepal,

I was in Nepal for 20 weeks with my boyfriend. In my first week I lived in a hostel and had there a language course in Nepali. This was very nice, because when you live in Nepal for many months it is important that you know some Nepali words and sentences, because not so many people can speak English. At the beginning of my program I had some problems and I struggled because of the new culture, the infrastructure and the new people here. But with the time it becames normal. After 2 weeks I changed my host family because we had there some problems and doesn't felt comfortable. My new host family was in Belchautara, one hour far away from Pokahra. After I changed the host family everything was perfect. In this point was RSDP very good, their helped us that we can change the host family as soon as possible. In Belchautara I have worked in a school project as a teacher. I worked in the Gyan Bagaichaa English Boarding School, it is the most beautiful and best school I have seen in Nepal. I have teached at the school the students from grade 2-9 in nearly every subject (except Nepali). The time in the school was the best time I've ever had. The organisation RSDP is okay, because I had some communication problems with them. I think this organisation must make alot of things better. All in all, Nepal especially Pokahra (Belchautara) is like my second home country and I recommend everybody who is interested in , to learn more about a forgein and beautiful country, to visit Nepal!

Namaste dear volunteers,
before I start to give you a review about this program, I want to introduce myself and I want to tell you what I have done here in Nepal. My Name is Nikolas and Im 18 years old, I choosed a volunteering program for 5 month as a teacher in a school near by Pokhara. All in all I can say that I had a wonderfull time here. If you decide to come to this country, you need to bring some skills. Above all, it is important that you are flexible, from now on a plan can change completely at the time. You should be able to improvise anyway. Nepal is a beautiful but poor country. So do not try to enter with high standards. Get involved with the country and the culture and you will enjoy it. Of course you will not only experience beautiful things here, like me, but that is part of it. All I can say is that the beautiful things that I have experienced here surpass all other negative experiences. The organization on site was okay. Not the best, but not the worst. I'm writing this so that you get an idea of it.

I spent a week volunteering in the Everest region (3 hrs from Lukla airport) teaching at a school and a monastery. The teaching of English and Maths to the novice monks was very satisfying; they were well motivated and very willing to help me and each other. The subject matter was relatively basic so anyone with reasonable school English and Maths would be able to help. I stayed at a teahouse/guesthouse, around a 90 mins climb to the monastery although closer accommodation could be arranged including at the monastery itself.
After the teaching I trekked to Everest Basecamp for 2 weeks. RCDP arranged both the volunteering and the trek which progressed seamlessly.
I would recommend this programme and RCDP represent excellent value for money.

At my age 70....I always wanted to do some volunteer work and ABV USA looked to me as a good organization and Nepal did sound as a very interesting location with many needs, I traveled with 2 of my best friends from NYC. The orientation day 1 was provided with information about the program places to go, and ways to go. I got a cell phone from the country and eat lunch at a local restaurant, orientation was good by the local coordinator. I worked on the school in the morning and library in the afternoon, the school was challenging because there were physically disabled children in the same class with the regular children, but it was a very satisfying experience and heart warming to see how the able children help the disabled to get around the school. In the library was a lot of fun working with the children from the community different ages, loving, very polite. The host family was wonderful. I was happy that the coordinator was the head of the host family because he was there to help with any questions or concerns. The whole family was wonderful. Meals were good, I eat everything. Nepali food was delicious and I did not get sick from eating it. I am glad I went to Nepal, it was a very good experience.
