We create an opportunity for Nepali youth to work together with the international participant so that both can have a better understanding about their respective Cultures and global friendships can be formed. We create an environment where both parties can exchange their experiences and learn from each other.  Our programs are accessible to all and work for everyone from single women to couples /School or university Group of Student with anything from 2 weeks to 10 weeks to offer.  We are about changing people's lives with an interactive perspective which has been gathering momentum for the past seven years and forming life altering friendships and memories every step of the way.

The main thesis of the Volunteer Program is that you will work on a project that is related to your education or your interests. We do make a special effort to tailor your volunteer experience to suit your interests and abilities. What’s important for us is that you are pleased with your experience. You are therefore more than welcome to come with your desires.

The INTERGEO TOURS Nepal has many programs within varied fields. On the below you will find detailed information about the different places. If you don’t find a project that suits you or you want to work at a specific program we will do our best to accommodate your wishes.

Our Volunteer Programs are :-

Assisting at Orphanage Homes
In this program volunteers will be placed in an orphanage. Some placements allow the volunteer to live within the orphanage, however, volunteers can also choose to be placed with our local host family located within a walk-able distance from the orphanage home. As well as being very rewarding, these placements can be physically and emotionally demanding. Your role as an Orphanage Volunteer is to be a big brother or sister to the children. What you will be doing will vary in each orphanage. You may be required to help in other ways besides simply working with the children - for example helping with medical visits, cleaning, paper recycling, gardening, teaching the house mothers how to properly clean, doing repairs, mending clothing, planning activities for after they return from school and perhaps preparing meals. Once the children return from school, your role will be to assist and encourage them with their homework as well as play with them. Teaching English may be a big focus as you will not be able to teach common subjects such as Maths or Science with the language barrier. You could help the children in other areas - basic hygiene for example, like regular teeth brushing and hand washing. Games, songs and other activities will be extremely popular with the children. Some of the older children may be encouraged to develop skills that may help them in later life such as paper making, sewing or maintenance work. These may be future skills that could help them to become self-sufficient as adults.

Teaching English at our Village Recourse Centers

The primary purpose of the Center is to offer community youth the opportunity to develop their English language skills and to give the young people a beneficial and positive way of spending their time rather than taking up drinking, smoking or gambling. Resource Centers offer English language instruction and cultural interaction to young people and adults in the community. Ultimately, the philosophy is that improved language skills will lead to employment, particularly in the Chitwan and Pokhara tourist areas as well have enormous advantage in any further education: English language is the medium for tertiary education in Nepal. Being able to consolidate classroom knowledge with a native or very good speaker of English is an enormous advantage in learning English and learning about cultures is also enriching and important.

Environmental Awareness

Volunteers will teach environmental awareness at the local school and/or Environmental Post for 2 to 4 hours each day, Sunday through Friday.
Environmental awareness projects will be defined by the individual volunteers based-upon their areas of expertise and the needs of the village community. Example projects include:  creating "green" clubs, planting a flower garden, planting trees, garbage management, recycling programs making a smokeless stove, building a toilet pit, etc. Volunteers may also provide assist to youth clubs or women's groups in the community sharing their ideas, skills and knowledge about environmental issues. After completing the Nepali language and cultural training, volunteers will  be placed with a Nepali family in one of the program villages. The host family will live no more than one half hour from the school/Environmental Post.

Cultural Exchange & Home-stay Program

Home-stays and cultural exchange programmes can be arranged in most areas of Nepal with our 55 Host-families. Participants will be placed with a Nepali family in a small rural village for the duration of their stay. This provides the volunteers with an excellent opportunity to learn about all aspects of Nepali culture, lifestyle, language, food and people. Volunteers should remember that this is a cultural exchange and that an effort to offer some knowledge of their own home culture and customs to the family with whom they stay is appreciated. During their stay, volunteers will attend 2 hours
of language lessons in the morning and in the afternoon. They will also have the opportunity to visit and help out at the local school. Home stay programmes are best organized from August to December which is the time when most large local festivals take place. This makes for an overall more
exciting experience for the volunteer. Nepali culture is distinctively friendly and open and participants are made to feel as though they are part of the family.

Teaching various subjects in Schools

 In this program, volunteers teach various subjects at theirs choice at government schools to students of varying age and ability, although most students are aged ten to sixteen. Depending on the school, volunteers will either teach independently or with another Nepali teacher. Volunteers teach between two to four 45-minute classes each day, six days a week (Saturdays are holidays).Volunteers enrolling in this program will also be expected to share their own teaching methodologies/experiences as well helping the school's teachers to develop their own conversational English skills. Prior to their placement, volunteers will receive two weeks of Nepali language and cultural training. During their placement, volunteers will stay with a local

Nepali family located between a half-hour to one hour from the school. This will be one of the most fulfilling experiences of your life.

Teaching Buddhist Monk Program

Nepal is a birth place of Buddha and Buddhism. Though, predominantly a Hindu country, Nepal has a significant Buddhist influence, beautiful monasteries all over Nepal shows the popularity of Buddhism in Nepal. In Kathmandu, Buddhism is also practiced by Tibetan people who are in exile in Nepal. Volunteers interested to work in a Buddhist monastery mostly teach English education to monks and immerse themselves in Buddhist culture. This is a perfect project if you are interested in Buddhism and the life of Buddhist monks.

What skills do I need ?

Though no teaching experience or skill is needed, volunteers joining the Buddhist monk teaching programs in Nepal should have good English both written and verbal. Volunteers are expected to be flexible and patient. Volunteers with an interest in the lifestyle of Buddhist monks will enjoy this program.

What are my responsibilities ?

As a volunteer in Real Nepal Monk teaching project, you will primarily work as English instructors in the schools of Tibetan Children's Village. You will teach English to Tibetan kids for 3-4 hours a day. In addition to English teaching, volunteers will assist in other school extra curricular activities and administration. In the evening, you can organize games, drawing, singing, dancing, and other creative education and extra curricular activities.
Morning and late evening time is free. If you love Buddhism, this is the perfect time to join meditation, rituals, prays, and songs with the Buddhist monks. This project gives perfect opportunities to immerse in Buddhist religion and lifestyle.

Where do I live and eat ?

During volunteering in the Buddhist monastery, volunteers will stay in a hostel (mostly located inside the compound of the temple school). This hostel also acts as home for monks and kids. Real Nepal arranges a separate room and shared bath for volunteers. If you are highly interested in staying on with a host family, that can also be arranged. You can find the details of arrangements for room/food in the placement sheets provided you. Real Nepal Kathmandu office is within 3 miles distance of this project so our local staff will visit you every 2 weeks. In your free time, you are always welcome to visit our office.

Working in Agricultural Fields

In this program volunteer will be staying with a local host family and help in their dally house work 5 days in a week.

Agriculture is one of the oldest occupations in Nepal and approximately 90% of our population works in this sector. There was a major breakthrough in agricultural production in the 1960's with the introduction of the new agricultural technology based on the high yielding variety of crops. The success of Nepalese agriculture, however, lies in the successful transfer of this new technology to the fields. Agricultural Sciences and allied fields are continually developing and changing as new knowledge is gained through research and new technology revolutionizes working methods. The fields allied to agriculture cover areas like horticulture, animal husbandry and veterinary sciences, dairy science, sericulture, fisheries and forestry, seed collection and distribution, erosion and flood control etc. Horticulture involves doing research work on plants and is a much-applied field. It is a science that includes floriculture or cultivation of flowers. In agriculture the volunteer has to be actively involved in planting, harvesting, marketing and other aspects of fieldwork


The placements are available in Kathmandu Valley, Kavre, Langtang, Pokhara, Nawalparasi and Chitwan, all of which are near to a major city. Volunteers can look up the places to get more of a feel for the areas and we can discuss where you will stay when you arrive according to your needs and with considerations of safety of volunteers and availability. Our local co-ordinators will be looking after you.

We also can manage placements for 30 people as we have 30 facilities to place volunteers at a time but we need to receive flight arrival information at least a month in advance.

Health & Sanitation/Medical Work

Nepal 's health care system is very poorly resourced . There is an obvious lack of manpower and resources at all levels. The local hospitals which are located in the outer city areas and villages urgently need volunteers and help. As a medical volunteer in Nepal , you will work in these rural health posts and community clinics. You mostly work as an assistant to the main doctor. Work responsibilities vary with your education, skill and experience.

Depending on their medical qualifications volunteers with a background in healthcare will work closely with orphanages in the Kathmandu Valley. The need is extensive for children's health care. Projects could include; health checks, the creation of medical records, health and sanitation education; administering inoculations against childhood diseases and treating basic ailments in the orphanage. Volunteers with health education and first aid training can also provide real benefits to local communities. You can teach youth clubs and/or women's groups in the community about Health and Sanitation. You can also deliver first aid knowledge to the local villages and assist in developing and delivering First Aid and General Health Programs. Please note that for the health program we prefer medical students or advanced degree holders, however, volunteers with basic experience in this area can also be placed.

Work in a Disabled Care Facility:

Assist care givers and provide updated care methodology for children with a range of disabilities including Autism, Downs Syndrome, Physical and Mental challenges. You may also spend a small portion of your day to teach 'polite English' to care facilitators to better communication with medical staff, and interested third parties.
