I run the Global Volunteer Network, a non profit organisation. We place volunteers in community projects in China, Ecuador, Ghana, Nepal, New Zealand, Romania, Russia, Thailand, and Uganda. Volunteers have the opportunity to participate in a variety of educational, environmental and community aid programs. Examples of the exciting and rewarding activities available to volunteers include teaching English, environmental work, health and sanitation, and cultural home stays. Our programmes in Nepal include Teaching English, Working in an Orphanage, Environmental Awareness, Health Education, School and Community Maintenance and a Home Stay Programme/Cultural Exchange.
Feedback from our volunteers has been extremely positive; for instance one volunteer writes "I am so impressed with your program, the ease at which you've handled all the volunteers, and how responsive and informative you are. I am very happy to be doing a program with an organisation like yours." Phone: ++64 4 569 9080

Nepal Reliance Organization (NRO)is the first not-for-profit, non-governmental organization in Nepal run by Nepalese women to see foreign volunteers in Nepal. NRO is duly registered with the government Social Welfare Council. Our mission is to recruit volunteers from all over the world, both gender, all ages, to work in areas such as health, education and capacity building, as well as fundraising. We provide volunteers with a customized program that will enable them to make an important contribution to the people of Nepal. By the same token, volunteers tend to gain an in-depth experience of Nepal’s language and culture that might stay with them for the rest of their lives.
Initially, NRO engages volunteers in an orientation within the Nepali cultural and language. Then, we place them in health posts,schools and in other community programs. NRO volunteer programs are available to individuals and/or groups. Placement all year long range from one week to five months, according to people's availability and needs.
