Volunteering at Aishworya

We welcome volunteers from around the world. Whether you’d like to spend a day with us during your holiday to Nepal, or stay with us for a few months, we’d love to meet you.

As a volunteer, you’ll play a vital role in our children’s development and the day-to-day running of Aishworya. In return, you’ll become part of our family, enjoying a unique, rewarding experience to remember for a lifetime.

Here are some of the activities you can help us with:

  • Teaching English through play, conversation and helping with homework.
  • Helping with daily chores like cleaning, washing, cooking, or getting the children ready for school.
  • Providing entertainment like playing games, drawing, reading, or trips to the park. The children also love music and dance!
  • Volunteers can also support us with their specific skills, e.g. previous environmental science graduates helped us install solar panels, and an IT expert helped to develop our website.

You can read about the experiences past volunteers have had at Aishworya here.

The fee we charge for your stay, which covers accommodation, meals and airport pick up/drop off, depends on the duration of your stay. The fees go directly to supporting the children and are spent on rent, food, bills, clothes, medical care and education. None of our staff draw a wage for their work.

To enquire about volunteering, please email us – we’d love to hear from you.

Our Volunteer Handbook provides more detail on what to expect as well as ideas for what you can do once you’re here.
