 Review JP Christy Volunteer in Kathmandu, Nepal

How was the local Coordinator and the staff and the support provided in-country?
The arrival and coordination experience were very good, he picked me up promptly, showed me local transportation and picked up a local phone for me. He also found a printer and translated for me for a Animal welfare project.

What was the most surprising thing you experienced while in the program?
I was pleasantly surprised at the level of professionalism at the Animal welfare Center and its success statistics are impressive.

What was most difficult thing you experienced while in the program?
The language barrier was challenging but not impossible. Because of other recent projects, I have focused on learning Spanish rather than Nepali.

Any tips for future volunteers….(clothing, travel information, packing, sightseeing, donations)
Remember to bring a flash light and carry a roll of toilet paper (outside of the host family house)

Other things volunteers should know:
The local food is somewhat spicy. I enjoyed it.

5. Personal paragraph (volunteer program testimonial):
Having worked with a street dog rescue in Peru, I had some idea what to expect. However, the passion, professionalism, and organization at Animal welfare center was superior to what I found in Peru. Animal welfare centre does important work and does it well.
