Teaching in Kathmandu – Amazing Experience!

I spend a month teaching in a school in Kathmandu Nepal.
It is an amazing experience, especially if you want to put your teaching skills on the line.
I have learned not only that I love what I do, but also gained confidence and good experience.
You also get to understand a different culture and meet amazing people! – Antonia Bozzolo, Las Condes

Volunteer teaching in Kathmandu, Nepal

This is a great opportunity for volunteers who want to gain teaching experience while improving learning environments in rural areas of Nepal.

Your presence will open hearts and minds to life outside of a small village where ideas of life beyond their small corner of the world are seldom generated. Teaching the students and inspiring the teachers with new methods will leave your legacy in place.

Volunteering at a Buddhist Monastery

Buddhism is a religion based on the ideals of peace and compassion. There is much to learn from the followers of Buddhism their mantra of a simple life. This project provides a truly special opportunity for our volunteers to get a close insight of Buddhist culture and spirituality, while also making a contribution to bettering the lives of the monks.

Medical Volunteer in Nepal: Internship at the Pediatric Clinic in Kathmandu

When Magda from Portugal started her workaway with IKPVA as medical volunteer in Nepal, an old childhood dream came true for her. At the Pediatric Hospital in Kathmandu she exchanged experiences and knowledge, while her Nepalese host family welcomed her with utmost kindness. During the last days of her trip, Magda went for trekking in the Annapurna Region.

It´s been a childhood dream of mine to visit Nepal and the neighboring region of Tibet.
Ikoporan in association with FDIP allowed me to join the wishes of helping others and getting to know such a different culture as the Nepalese is from the European.

In the Heart of Kathmandu

During my 3 week stay in Nepal I was very fortunate to be welcomed in a host nepalese family that not only demonstrated utmost kindness and generosity to me and my boyfriend, but also with whom I was able to learn about many customs and their meanings, cultural inheritance, frustrations and dreams in the heart of Kathmandu. I thank them for having enriched my experience in countless ways.

Volunteering in a Kathmandu Hospital – a great opportunity!

At the hospital I was able to exchange experiences and knowledge that was beneficial to both sides and was also extremely well integrated in the hospital routines. Thank You Manmohan Cardiothoracic Vascular and Transplant Center for this opportunity!!!

During the final days: Trekking in the Annapurna region, Nepal
