Volunteer Program

Monica, our 1st Volunteer Teacher from Spain interacing with the students

Soon we will launch this new program responding to the needs of modernizing and improving English teaching in Government schools. We will welcome Qualified teachers from abroad to come to our schools and contribute new teaching methods that are nutritious for our teachers and students. Any new skills that help improve spoken English and English comprehension will always be a valuable legacy with very positive results in both short and long term for Nepali pupils and teachers. It is essential to share and exchange this information to enrich both sides and take small but important steps towards a more understanding and comprehensive education.

Coordination of General Volunteer Programs


We understand that anybody with a social conscience, a positive attitude and lots of energy is more than welcome to join our volunteers program. We value people with elaborate skills in any area: building, arts & crafts, music, health, languages, agriculture... Any interesting skills that you think you have can be of help here and very productive to people's lives. Come and share your talent with us! Up to now we have already had the valuable help of three different groups of volunteers coming from all over the world Switzerland, Hong Kong, New Zealand and presently, from Spain. We are very happy we have had such a positive response up to now. They have all contributed greatly to our different programs and moreover, they are still in touch and following them with great interest and enthusiasm. We hope to continue getting more volunteers to come and join us. Its a chance for you to have a fulfilling time in Nepal and give a helping hand to this country, so that slowly  it becomes as beautiful as its people and its landscapes.

A 'real Nepali-life experience'


Lost in the hassle and bustle of Kathmandu city life, one may forget they are in the land of the Himalayas. Not too far from the isle of cement, one can experience the real village culture, blended in with nature and its mountains for centuries. We like to offer to our volunteers the chance of venturing into the mountain villages and taking advantage of this unique opportunity to live and learn about authentic village life. Life here runs at a more gentle pace. Here the volunteers also get a chance to share their knowledge skills and help village people improve some basics in their every-day life. Undoubtedly, it is a unique chance to discover the real Nepal and immerse one's self into the village people's culture.

Home-Stay for Volunteers/Visitors 


We can also provide our volunteers with lodging and food at a small cost during their stay in Nepal.

Be it in the city or in the villages, this will give them the perfect chance to mix with local people and taste authentic home-made Nepali cuisine. Soon we also hope to have a volunteers center running were they can relax and exchange experiences.

Visiting Nepal for Leisure


Being Nepalese ourselves, we have a wide experience in what our country has to offer and what tourists like to admire. If you are simply thinking about coming to Nepal for leisure, we can organize your trip for you. We can give advice on different possible itineraries, which can, according to your preferences, blend in both city and mountain landscapes. We can book your hotels and get the best local prices. We can also provide travelers with local lodging and home-stay. This is also a good chance to mingle with local people – either in the city or the villages - and taste authentic home-made Nepali cuisine.

Ultimately, we become your guides into this country and can advise you on the best different possibilities. This also offers you an amazing chance to meet the sites and people of Nepal, to become involved with its culture and to understand more of its magical heritage. We will help you make your experience here the best of a lifetime!

  • "These past 11 days, I have the privilege of living with James and Apsara and helping with his projects. This experience was priceless and taught me so much. I feel that these 11 days I learned and gained more than could be gained over years time, and more than money can buy in Japan. Most importantly, I’m thankful that I was able to meet and spend time getting to know James Luitel--a man who is living his mission wholeheartedly. Each and every word he speaks is so deep. I learn things on a different level when he says things, even things that I thought I knew. It’s like he communicates with his life and sample; it’s not just head knowledge. These are experiences that I couldn’t have gained had I not come here. James, thank you for letting me be a part of this. -Shinichi Miyazaki (32, from Japan)"

  • "I have come to stay at James' place for 11 days with other five Japanese friends. And it was my first volunteer trip and at first I felt a bit uncomfortable about the weather and traffic situation. But things started to get better when we went to help out in the library which James is now helping to build. We met some really sweet kids there whom are students in the school. They all had beautiful eyes and lovely smiles. They were all eager to get acquaintance with new friends so they would gather around us asking simple English questions, such as what is your name? Where do you come from, etc. Even though most of them can only make short English sentences, their eagerness in communication were expressed through their repeating the same question to different members of our teams or repeating it to the same member once after a while. Not only they hang around out of curiosity or friendliness, they were also passionate and good helpers. There is this girl named Sahbida, age 11, whose house is the closest to the school. She was very dedicated and able to help out on the painting job. Because the doors and windows we were trying to repaint were really old ones, so there were spider webs and cocoons of various kinds stuck on the corners of them. When we caught sight of one of those and let out a suppressed sound of scream, she would rush forward and grab a broom and brushed them all away for us. We were all so touched by that action of protection and courage. When we mumbled our thanks out of embarrassment, she smiled back and said, "You me friends". There are so many details about the kids that we were honored to work with for just two brief days. Some of whom we could hardly remember their names. And when I think about the possibility that I might not be able to meet them again, my heart aches so much. I do miss them and I pray for them all to be able to live their life to the fullest. The kids in James' house are amazing too. Even though we just spent a night along with half a day together, I think we really have established somewhat of a connection. Sojan is smart and quick in reaction. He remembered a couple of Japanese sentences fast and within two hours he could even count to one hundred in Japanese. And he also is my very first, patient and good Nepali teacher. Sadin is the one with the brightest smile. His big bright eyes are enough to make him seem really happy even when he is actually not smiling. Sunil is very active and sincere. He is also willing to try new things. He got really excited to get to know Shinichi san, the only guy on our team, and soon they became as close as brothers. Krishna seems to me the one who does more than talks. He is more of a supporter kind of person than a leader. But I can sense that he is a trustworthy and highly reliable boy. Dhiren is the cutest among boys :) Always keeping silent, always pondering…. well, ok, maybe I don't really know about him. Nisha is the only girl and nobody would doubt about her elegance and beauty even in such a young age. She was not feeling well the night when we met and in the following morning she spent most of the time walking hand in hand with one of our youngest (and certainly the prettiest) member, Maria. Their very presence brightened up our day at the zoo :) So many recounts about the kids. I just wanna say that I really like them and look forward to meeting them all sometime in the future. And I hope I can do what I can to help them in their education as well."
