Evolving into the organisation we are today

As an organisation EHN has been running in its present form for just over 4 years & around 3 years before that under another name. In our first three years we spent a lot of time learning about the different types of projects & who are genuine & who not. And this time was important because from those three years we have been able to develop the organisation we have today which we are very happy with after deciding we can’t trust orphanage & children’s home owners because they didn’t put the children first.

So in 2015 we got together & decided that we were going to adapt our organisation to what it is today & that’s one that concentrate on education & health projects (or both like our new one we are launching this year). We have distanced ourselves from children`s homes & so called orphanages because they don’t put the children first

Rural Medical camp

 & quite often not care for them at all. We do support several rural farming opportunities because that is where we have experienced our best times in Nepal & feel that as international visitors to Nepal you will really enjoy & learn from the experience.

So from this our aim as we work through 2019 is to concentrate on finding teaching volunteers for a number of schools across Nepal. You have to be fluent in English & ready to talk a lot (because most Nepali will want to practice) even if you are not a teacher. And of course interested in learning about a completely different culture to the one you experience at home.

So if you are interested in volunteering as a teacher with an organisation that has worked for a number of years in rural Nepal having proven them time & time again to be genuine then please get in touch through the website and start your volunteering experience.
