My visit to Samata school in Bhaktapur was unique. I had the chance to teach English, learn about Nepali culture, and maintain their website. The school is well organized, and the host was always around to assist with any concerns I had. In addition, I had the opportunity to live a few days in the village at my host’s home, which was beautiful. The family is lovely, and the food is exceptional. I recommend the school to any volunteer who wants to share and learn new skills.

I will always remember Samata School, was a unique experience meet Shova and live with all the kids this 3 months. Since the first second they make me feel part of the family, teaching me about their traditions, culture and the beautiful country that is Nepal. The kids are so lovely and warm, and they give you the 100% in any project that you propose them, and all the school's staff and the people that i meet here was really nice. Im gonna miss you a lot, but i will be back soon, for sure! I know that i have more family now =)

I can't even explain how amazing my experience at the school has been. In fact, I don't think a few words can describe how friendly and family-like the school's staff and the students have been. The students are so culturally aware, respectful and loving that one is bound to make dozens of life-long friends in a very short while. It's an experience that has made a substantial addition to me and will stay with me for life. I look forward to coming back here.

Volunteering at Samata has been the most heartwarming experience to date. It was amazing to meet so many very eager students who wanted to learn and interact with me and the other volunteer (Elena).
Shova made everything possible to make me feel comfortable and part of the family. Everyone, from the students, to the teachers made me feel like I belonged, and I felt so much love.
I love how close everything was to the school -- 5min walk to the Kamal Binyak Pond, and 15min walk to Dattatreya Square and 20mins to Bhaktapur Square.
Will definitely come visit the school and everyone again.❤
