Experience the culture of Nepal as you work at local centres around the city. Nepal is renowned for its elaborate local culture, infectiously welcoming population, and ornate religious structures and traditions. Pokhara is Nepal’s second largest city. Like other areas of Nepal, Pokhara is challenged by wealth disparities and inequitable access to resources. Our projects aim to address these inequities.
As a volunteer, your time will be divided between childcare, teaching, and women’s empowerment projects. Time allocated at each location depend on the needs of the community at the time. Each project’s long-term goals contribute to an overall commitment to improving the quality of life for the people of Nepal.
Internships are geared at developing your leadership skills, allowing you to develop a variety of key soft and hard skills that will put you a step ahead the rest of the pack. GVI have been running community development, education, and conservation projects since 1997 and our highly motivated field staff will help you gain and improve vital skill sets to improve your future job prospects.
I saw some things I never even dreamed I would see and met the nicest people I have ever come across in my lifetime. The only thing I hated about the program was that it ended! Fun, enjoyment and other words like that can't even come close to describing the time I had in Nepal!
