A Broader View Volunteers has extensive experience working in Nepal with students, teachers and families providing tailor-made service trips for small groups.

Nepal is a magical Himalayan country with an unusually diverse landscape. Eight of the world's ten highest mountains, including Mount Everest, are found here,  making it a haven for trekking, mountain biking, and hiking. The country is also known for its national wildlife parks, jungle safaris, river rafting, and its many beautiful temples and places of worship. Nepal offers visitors a mix of ancient and modern with common sites like cows walking down the streets, Buddhist monks talking on cell phones and local children playing on 1000 year-old temple ruins.

The population of Nepal is approximately 27 million people; almost half of them are under 18 years old. Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world, most people living on less than $1000 a year. Almost 80% of the population still makes a living from agriculture. The rate of unemployment is almost 50% and poverty levels are very rampant. Nepal’s youth is quite large, accounting for almost half of the population. Many children are orphaned, abandoned, homeless and living on the streets.

Our programs provide a safe, enriching experience working in a community clinic, rural village, with At Risk youth, and little babies and toddlers. Take part in meaningful community service work, while discovering the people, sights, smells and tastes of Nepal.

Reviews

Till now everything went smooth and as I expected. This is life-changing experience for me. I got opportunity to explore my own self. I came to know that love, happiness; smile and help are away from nationality, culture, skin color or language.

Staffs at dental hospital were so welcoming and kind. Bought us food and drinks, introduced us to many good food and phrases to interact with the patients. Did extractions, pulpectomy, fillings, etc. Great if I could have done more but sadly no, due to language barrier

I loved my stay with the coordinator and his family. They are very caring and helpful and like a second family to me. My work environment was great and people were really friendly. I would definitely come back to Nepal with my family and spend more time here.
