• Are you over 18 ? If not, then we need one of your parent's or guardian's consent.

  • Can you live without modern facilities, e.g. hot water and electricity?

  • Are you aware that you might experience illness at some point during your stay?

  • Are you open enough to accept and respect a culture no matter how different it is from your first culture?

  • Are you comfortable with yourself? At times you may feel isolated, particularly when you arrive in a village not knowing anyone.

  • Are you eager to learn? You'll learn a new language, a new culture, a new way of life.

  • Can you handle culture shock? The moment you step off the plane you will be in a world where very little is familiar.

  • Are you flexible? Developing countries, and Nepal, in particular, are not as obsessed with time as the US or Europe. Often schedules are ignored or appointments begin later than arranged. If you decide to volunteer in Nepal, you are opening the door to the possibility for a personally enriching and life-changing experience
