Volunteer in Nepal, nestled in the Himalayas, the birthplace of Buddha and the country of peace and love. Nepal is a country of sharp contrasts, between some of the most beautiful landscapes and warm hospitality. 

Intern & Volunteer in Nepal

Through our volunteer projects and internships in Nepal, we help to facilitate sustainable development for disadvantaged, marginalised and poorly educated members of society. Nepal is known for being one of the happiest countries, despite one-quarter of the population living below the poverty line; this might be from the peaceful, giving nature of Nepali people, or their tolerance and understanding toward others. Resilient and diverse, the people of Nepal are unified by their strong sense of national identity and pride. 

Our internships and volunteer projects in Nepal aim to reach all areas of society that face disadvantage or discrimination, from projects that empower women who have been cast aside by society to community-based projects offering healthcare at a public hospital. Our objective in rural projects is to collaborate with communities, harness local resources, and provide education and skills – empowering the local residents.

In April 2015, Nepal was affected by a 7.8-magnitude earthquake that had disastrous effects on daily life and infrastructure. The damaging effects were experienced all throughout Nepal, from the Kathmandu valley to the rural villages in the mountains, including the communities where our projects take place. Read more about how Kaya has helped rebuild communities through our volunteer work in Nepal. Now, several years on, the restoration of Nepal is almost complete!  

Join Kaya and intern or volunteer in Nepal to empower and provide resources to communities in need, and make a difference that will have a lasting, sustainable impact.
