The volunteers will work in Orphanage houses in or around Kathmandu valley, Chitwan and Kaski (Pokhara) district of Nepal, taking care and organising activities for the children. One or two volunteers can be placed in an orphanage at a time.
Duration of the project: 2-5 months. The volunteer placements start on the first Monday of each month.
Accommodation: Accommodation will be arranged in or near the Orphanage house. Most orphanage centers do not have hot shower, but most of them have bathrooms and toilets. Please do not except facilities like in your country! The volunteers will get their own single room and enough Nepali food Dalbhat. There is a two time food system in Nepal: heavy breakfast around 9am and dinner around 7pm. Tea is very common - when you visit a family, they will welcome you by serving tea!

Relevant training and skills are appreciated. Good motivation, interest to work with children, flexibility and cooperative spirit are expected.
The volunteers will get an opportunity to participate in a 3 days orientation seminar at our training center in Kathmandu. The seminar aims to give basic knowledge and understanding about the problem of street children, Do and Don’t issues, Nepali language, culture, dresses, food etc. The orientation seminar will start on first Monday of each month.
A volunteer experience may give you ideas or a push in deciding your professional aspirations - one of the most important and difficult decisions one should make in life. It can make stronger your motivation or give you additional inspiration in what you are studying or working. And most important, by being a volunteer you gain the hands-on experience you will hardly get at lectures or at the office desk. In a workcamp you can have such an involving and inspiring time!
After successful participation CADIP issues a certificate for the completed volunteer hours.
