Children’s Home Volunteer Project

Volunteer Nepal – Child Care (Orphanage) Project

Volunteer in Nepal

Friends for Asia’s Child Care (Orphanage) Project places volunteers where they can really make a difference. Through interaction and education our volunteers transform the lives of countless disadvantaged children every year. Enthusiasm and dedication are a must for this challenging role, but for the right person it is a truly profound experience.

We place our volunteers at a number of children’s homes and orphanages throughout the Kathmandu valley. You will live at the home full-time for the duration of the project, truly immersing them in the day-to-day life of a Nepal orphanage.

Volunteering in Nepal – A Day in the Life

The life of a child care volunteer is often a demanding one and it can be “go, go, go” from dusk to dawn. Responsibilities vary from home to home and often involve simply interacting and playing with the kids. Many homes will be empty during school hours, though there will often be sick children to care for. After school hours, the children will need to be fed and helped with their homework, followed by games, songs and other activities to keep them stimulated until bedtime.

Nepal Volunteer Tasks and Skills

The tasks at a children’s homes and orphanages tend to be many and varied. As well as interacting and playing with the children, volunteers help teach them about hygiene, help with medical visits and basic treatments, walking them to school, or mending clothes. The list goes on. In a nutshell, the volunteer’s role is to act as a big brother or sister by helping, advising and caring for the children in any way possible.

Volunteer Nepal – Making a Difference

Make no mistake, this is one of our toughest volunteer projects. It can be physically and emotionally draining. That said, it is also one of our most popular and past volunteers consistently rate it as one of the best experience of their lives.

The difference our Nepal volunteers make to the lives of these children almost defies description. Through interaction, education and care, volunteers enrich the lives of children who have had the toughest possible start in life. It is worth noting that not all children at these homes are orphans, many have been abandoned and others “have been given over to brokers” by their families. Everything that can be done to help these children now will reap huge rewards in years to come.
