My second stay with Heaven Hill Projects was at New Marigold Academy. This is a new project that I could support from day one up to a month. With the owner and other volunteers, we set up the rooms and assisted in maintaining the school. It was an enriching experience, and I learned something new every day. It is perfect for new volunteers who want to participate in an organized project.

Heaven Hill is one of the best experience i had. I learned a lot of things and some nepali words. I like the experienced that we taught english, play with them and make some lunch for the kids. Host was very accommodating and very organized which is very important. Second, Mr. Shamser is really committed and passionate about education for kids and helping other people. Third, the place where we stayed is so nice coz you will feel the fresh air and you will see the awesome scenery. Lastly, food is good,they serve Dal Bhat.

I highly recommend Heaven Hill to learn more things & meet locals.

It was a pleasure to volunteer at Heaven Hill Academy. The accommodation for the volunteers is cozy. There is a fast Wi-Fi and everyday breakfast and dinner are served. Lunch is available at the school. As a volunteer, you can help in the kitchen, on Instagram, as a teacher, on the construction site, or share other skills and ideas with the project. On Saturday and Sunday, you can rest and explore the rural life of Gaunshahar and its inhabitants.

Namaste 🙏🏽 We spent a little more than two weeks at Heaven Hill Academy and could not have asked for a better first local experience in Nepal. The view from the village is breathtaking and gives you a genuine and realistic image of the Nepali lifestyle in the mountains. Volunteering at the school was a pleasure, whether it was helping with painting, construction or teaching English to the kids. Their smile is contagious!! Also, what we enjoyed was creating connections with all the beautiful committed volonteers from all over the world.
