I had an overall amazing time and experience with Possible Nepal, the kids are truly the most hardworking, funny, playful and at times serious I have ever had the pleasure to meet. They have a set routine that you join in with and you'll find it strange at first that Sunday is a school and work day. But there are some areas to improve upon for volunteers for example the sleeping accommodation you will share with bed bugs not the nicest of things but remember you're there for them not for you. Be prepared for power cuts and the wifi dropping it's all part of life in Phutung.
Unfortunately it wasn't a good experience and I left the second day. Since the beginning the host was asking me for money as donation, it wasn't written when i applied, but he insisted the whole first day, so I gave it. The first day in the orphanage with the kids was really good, but the second day, that I was supposed to teach english at the school, the host left and told me to negotiate with the principle to give some classes, but he didn't know I was coming to teach, so I waited at school for hours without having a class or explanation, and the host didnt help. It was so unorganized!
Volunteering for Possible Nepal was one of the greatest experiences in my life. I cannot deny that it was hard for me at first, but believe me, these kids are so smart, intelligent and the most importnat, polite.
My job as a volunteer was to walk the kids to and from school, help with their homework, play together at their freetime and showing them movies on my laptop, and they liked the movies very much!
Possible Nepal is a great place to volunteer for. They need each hand that can help to raise these children in an appropriate way, and if you already applied, you'll have so much fun!
