Nepal, such a amazing country I had ever been in my life, how can someone describe this beautiful country? Country loved by god natural beauty simply heaven in this earth . Friendly people open minded environment and moreover to be with such an amazing Guide Mr. Saroj Ghimire is just a dream come true. Working as a volunteer is always fun and I was fortunate enough to have had some incredible experience. From my first day , Saroj ( CEO of PVN Nepal) never made me feel I was in new place . It was so memorable and easy working with him.
As my program I was in appointed to teach in school in Damdame. It was one of my unforgettable days . So much love and respect with caring home stay you could never imagined. The children were fun & co worker I worked there being teacher were helpful and caring in every step .
I never imagined myself that working as volunteer in Nepal would be an extraordinary and amazing experience . I loved my time there very much. I highly recommend this trip to anyone who is not sure just yet and to those who already are planing to go, get ready to trip of lifetime.
Thank you PVN-NEPAL for such an amazing time !

Dear David,

Thank you very much for your feedback.

I worked as a volunteer in Nepal for three months in 2010, and I can honestly say it was one of the best experiences of my life. Saroj met me at the airport when I arrived, and I spent the first few days with two other volunteers, learning about the Nepalese language and customs in Kathmandu. We explored the local area and saw the important religious sites - it truly is a fascinating place.
We were each allowed to choose where we would like to go for our voluntary placements. I firstly went to Thulaket, a small village, north of Pokhara. I lived with a wonderful family, worked in the children's resource centre in the mornings and evenings, and taught English in the school during the day. It was a stunningly beautiful place, the people were warm and welcoming, and at the weekends, all the volunteers would meet in the town of Pokhara. I grew to love Dahl Baht - the staple of the Nepalese diet!

I then spent a few weeks volunteering at an orphanage in Pokhara. I lived with two other volunteers in the town, and we went to help at the orphanage each day. We played games with the children and taught them English, as well as helping the orphanage staff with day to day cooking and cleaning.
My third and final placement was in Lumbini, in the south of the country. I lived in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery, where I taught English to the monks each day. It was a unique and fantastic experience. I was treated so well by the staff and students, and I learned so much from my time there.
After my placements, I met with some of the other volunteers and we spent a few days in the jungle in Chitwan - again, a truly memorable experience.
I have since travelled all over the world, but have yet to find any place as wonderful as Nepal. I made some fantastic friends there and was truly sorry to be leaving at the end of my placement. The Nepalese people are really special, and Saroj is a wonderful person, who really takes care of the volunteers that come to Nepal. Any question, concern or problem (even though there were none!) - I knew Saroj was only ever a phone call away. For anyone considering going to Nepal to volunteer - do it! It has truly been the most memorable experience of my life to date.

Teaching monk in Kathmandu in cowling monastery which is outside of Kathmandu in kapan. 5 years to 15 years students monk we there and about 52 students in total. I taught 3 hours a day. My subject was English, after 1 pm we had lunch where we ate dall bhat and vegetable which was really food. After 3pm we finished school but they have Tibetan class till 5pm and I was playing with younger monks. Badminton, chess, card game and watching tv and some Nepalese and Jackie chan’s movies was how our time splendid in free time. Saturday and Sunday I spend my time in Boudda and thamel having western food and watching amazing live concerts. I couldn’t believe I finished my 2 months teaching at monastery leaving with such memorable days with me. I found it was short time. After finishing my volunteering I did jungle safari and Annapurna trekking. Thank you PVN-Nepal and your entire team..You guys are really friendly and flexible Namaste!!
