How safe is Nepal? ——————————————————————————————
Why volunteer with EHN?
We are a joint English/Nepali organisation that is run by volunteers (including the founders) for volunteers. Over the last couple of years we have constantly adapted our organisation to improve the lives of the people we are helping and for the volunteers who pay for the experience of helping in Nepal. We are in this field to make a difference to peoples lives.
Why is a donation/fee required to volunteer?
EHN survives on two things one is the generosity of volunteers who help us promote across the World. And the second is the fees which are spent on lodgings, food, travel and 24 hour support while volunteers are in Nepal. We keep expenses to a minimum with a small office in Nepal and then pass these savings on to our volunteers.
I have never booked over the internet before, is my money safe?
Booking online is perfectly safe we never pass your information on to other parties. We have an account in England and Nepal as well as a PayPal account as well as a system as pay when you arrive in Nepal.
Who Volunteers at your projects?
EHN has been lucky with volunteers arriving from all over the World. We have welcomed volunteers from the UK, Canada, France, Germany, and Singapore, Madagascar as well as other countries. The age range is from 17 to 50 years of age and all have one thing in common an interest in helping the people of Nepal.
What are the objectives of EHN?
The objectives of EHN are simple to make a difference to the poorer communities of Nepal. By helping to improve the education and medical standards in these areas through the placement of volunteers, sponsors and donations.
Why is EHN cheaper than most other organisations sending volunteers overseas?
When EHN first started it was decided that all of the main workers would be volunteers united with an interest in helping others. So having set up a small office in Kathmandu and our website we recruited a small team of volunteers helping to promote EHN throughout the world. This way we are proud to announce that we give more of the fee to the placements and still keep the fee as low as possible.
What is Nepal’s geography like?
Nepal is made up of three strips of land, the Himalayas to the north, then the foothills in the middle and the flatland’s of the Terai to the South. In just 100 miles you can go from 8000`m to sea level.
What is the weather like in Nepal?
There are two seasons in the Nepali weather cycle. Rainy season lasts around 4 months and the dry around 8. The temperatures vary because of the vast diversity of the landscape. But in general the days are sunny and warm with temps ranging from 15-35 degrees and nights can drop below freezing in the Mountains.
How safe is Nepal?
Nepal is normally a safe country for travelling in but as in all countries we advise a certain caution if you are travelling alone. Most Nepali treats tourists as honoured guests as their culture denotes.If you are planning to travel in Nepal after volunteering then EHN will provide you will safe travel details.
