To learn children need a safe and solid environment with the right facilities and resources.  

This wonderful program takes place on the outskirts of magical Kathmandu in a primary school. Located close to one of Kathmandu's largest slum areas, near Bhaktapur, the school provides free education, text books, uniforms and shoes to more than 150 children who live in poverty within the confines of the slum, and whose parents would otherwise not have been able to send their children to school at all.

Sadly, the school too lacks massively from underfunding, and it’s a daily struggle to simply keep the doors open. There are not enough classrooms and teaching materials are poor, meaning the children are simply not getting the education they deserve. This program offers true assistance to schools by supplying them with an international volunteer labor force that allows them to repair and maintain school facilities that they would otherwise be unable to afford to do.

Volunteers on this program help schools to continue to support children’s educational needs by providing them with much-needed assistance in providing safe facilities. 

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide free volunteer labor to maintain and build essential school facilities
  • Improve the future prospects of the children by supplying them with safe spaces to learn and play
  • Expose the locals to new and innovative ideas and a different way of doing things
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both students and international volunteers alike.

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start every SATURDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 1 week to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions. Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.


Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to have a tangible and lasting impact on the lives of families and communities facing extreme poverty in Nepal. This 'hands-on' project is ideally suited to those volunteers with some knowledge and experience in construction or any of the building trades, however the project is open to all and does not require participants to have specific education, qualifications or experience, as you will be shown everything you need to know by your local project leader. Importantly though, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, be fit and active, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!

It was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life

I cannot thank Love Volunteers enough for all the help and support prior, during and after my placement and for giving me the opportunity to have one of the most wonderful and unique opportunities. I have gained so many memories and skills, explored boundaries I never thought I would and met incredible humans who without this opportunity it wouldn't be possible. The Nepalese people are incredible, so warm and so genuine, and I hope some day I can go back there as they remain forever near and dear to my heart.

Now I've returned home it gives me such happiness being able to tell others of all the amazing stories and even the challenges along the way that made it all that more rewarding and again I just cannot thank love volunteers enough. The first day I got here it was a massive culture shock, Kathmandu airport was absolutely chaotic along with all the streets in Nepal so I was really starting to think 'what have I got myself into'! I was genuinely worried that I wouldn't be able to make it through my placement because of the difficulty I was having settling into the new culture. However, after the first few days you realise that it really is the charisma of the country and all the little glitches along the way that make you love the experience even more. The placement is far from easy, but the challenge makes it all the more rewarding.

I think anyone that goes into a volunteer placement will have made​ assumptions before they get there but I think any volunteer can tell you that it'll be nothing like you expect. Everyone who resides at this monastery has been amazing and so kind; the Nepalese people are so unbelievably welcoming and friendly and eating Dal baht everyday, having to take cold showers and crossing the crazy roads is all part of the experience!
