The Experience

Namaste! I'm Prashna. I work as a social worker here in Pokhara. As a child I did not have many opportunities and been raised in an orphanage made the difference in my life. Due to the kindness that was shown to me, I wanted to give back to my community and help children in the same situation, giving them a chance to have a different life. For this reason, I started this organization

Really enjoyed my time here! The host, his family, and all those staying at the home were amazing and very welcoming 🙏 It was exam week so I enjoyed helping the kids study in the morning before exams and in the evening for the next day.

I miss this already. One week was definitely too short to stay here, I recommend at least two. I had a wonderful time, and felt treated like family. What Prashna does for the community is incredible and very heartwarming. Something to be proud of. All my love to the family and the kids

What a wonderful experience !! It's a really social human project. Prashna is an incredible host and also an incredible man with a big heart ! He manage the orphanage as a big family, and you will be part of it. The kids/teenagers are so friendly, respectful, lovely. I was sad to leave this place so I will be back to see you again. All the best for you Prashna and your big family 😊

This experience was a highlight of my trip !! It is extremely flexible to your experience and abilities in volunteering and only requires you to help with the children and/or house chores in the mornings and evenings, leaving the rest of the day free to explore the beautiful Pokhara. The children are extremely polite and look after you well, and in return I helped them with their schoolwork which I found to be very enjoyable. The place has comfortable living spaces and includes a washing machine etc. The accommodation is located about a 30min walk from the town centre (Lakeside).

This experience was amazing. Prashna and his family welcomed me in and always made me feel so comfortable. They allowed me to experience celebrating their festival with them and it is such a great memory. I highly recommend this experience and can't thank everyone enough!
