Himalayan Foundation Volunteer programs

The Himalayan Foundation Nepal (HFN). is an officially registered non-government organization (Regd. No. 935) associated with the Social Welfare Council of Nepal (Regd. No. 24693). Himalayan Foundation Nepal started providing , food, support, shelter, sponsoring and education for underprivileged children within orphaned, street and communities children in Kathmandu and other areas of Nepal in 2005. Many children have had traumatic and tragic experiences as a result of the loss of their parents, much of which is due to the 10 year political war in Nepal. Since we have opened, we have managed to more than triple the amount of orphans in our care and plan to help many more.
Over the years, our work has expanded to include working with disadvantaged women to create new opportunities of generating income for themselves and their families, partnering with local schools to assist with teaching English, health and human trafficking awareness-raising activities, and community-building activities in Kathmandu, Chitwan and other areas of Nepal, Nepal is still a very underdeveloped country and needs developmental help in a wide range of areas.
Our organization also hosts volunteers, providing people from around the world with the opportunity to experience the real Nepal, staying with a local host family while assisting us in overcoming the challenges created by extreme poverty and disadvantage. Every volunteer makes a unique contribution, and our volunteers are able to work with us to structure their, volunteer experience following their interests and making the most of the skills and knowledge they have to offer.
If you are interested in volunteering with us or donating to support our work, please take a look at our various programs and contact us to let us know what areas of our work interested in.
