Orphanage in Nepal. Kathmandu Valley
You will have a good chance to learn about the Nepali culture and to meet local people. We are living in a suburb of Kathmandu so on days off volunteers can easily get into Kathmandu for sightseeing and shopping. There are also many interesting places close to Kathmandu which they can visit. It is only 20 minutes by bus from our place to Patan and it is also possible to visit Bhaktipur city, Psasupatinatha, Bhathanatha, Swabunatha (Monkey Temple) and many other places. We can tell you about them once you get here and help you with the local transport.
Volunteers will have their own private room in our house which can sleep two people. I would like you to help the children with their homework, to play with them and to do sport or art activities with them. Helping them practice their English is very much appreciated and you could help around the house or learn how to cook Nepalese food. Also I need help to translate some emails or to update my website and online profiles for the orphanage.
In the orphanage we are 14 members and a dog. We live as a big and great family. Im Lila and i run the place with the help of my husband Raj and Sapana. There are 6 girls and 4 boys. The children's are between 8 and 14 years old. Also we live with my little son Liam, who is 2 years old.
