Cultural Exchange

This program places volunteers anywhere in Nepal that they would like to explore. Nepal is large and very diverse. We can place you with a family in the mountains, the valley, the jungle, the desert region, or in Kathmandu. Each region has its own standards when it comes to religious practices and cultural mores.

You will live with a family in your chosen location and adopt the life style practiced there. It will be incumbent upon you as a volunteer to personalize the experience and share with your host family and with the community your own life lessons and practices, with an obvious respect for theirs. You will be encouraged to help your host family in the many daily chores that their life requires of them.
