We are excited to present our volunteer program at Rugged Trails Nepal! We believe in the connectedness of mankind, and are dedicated to giving back to the communities of our beloved homeland of Nepal.
In Nepal, unfortunately there are many corrupt volunteer opportunities that misuse program fees charged to foreign volunteers, or they are not honest about the service provided. At Rugged Trails Nepal, we provide an honest and non-profit making volunteer program; giving back to the community we love while also giving our volunteers a rewarding experience. Our program fees cover your accommodation, food, transportation costs, fee to your personal assistant from Rugged Trails Nepal, and nothing more. Our program offers volunteer placements in schools, health posts, village farming, construction, and child care. The placements are located Ranikot, a rural village which lies just outside of Kathmandu Valley, and in Charikot, a small mountain city approximately 5 hours bus ride from Kathmandu. Placements can vary in time, although we recommend at least one month to really immerse yourself in the work and make a difference in the community. Volunteers are supported by our staff 24/7 to ensure their comfort and satisfaction within their chosen placement.
"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others." -Mahatma Gandhi
