Volunteering during your trip to Nepal is entirely possible. However, we do not encourage humanitarian trips to schools or orphanages. If you don’t have the right skills and this “help” is only for a limited time, it could have a negative impact on the people concerned, or even make the situation worse. It’s important to remember that certain problems in countries like Nepal need to be dealt with by qualified professionals.
We can therefore offer you other alternatives where you can participate in voluntary action while having a positive impact. For example, there is an NGO in Chitwan, SU4E (Stand up for elephants), which offers some afternoons to go and meet two elephants, Eva and Lhamo, rescued and cared for by professionals, and where you can make donations. If you need more information, don’t hesitate to visit the NGO website: https://www.su4e.org/meet-our-elephants
There are many NGOs of this type, which could be a good alternative if you want to make a positive impact during your trip. Don’t hesitate to let us know if you’re interested and if you need any further information.
