Volunteer in Nepal with us. Why you should hire us and not a placement company.

Executive Director

People ask, and rightly so, why volunteer with Mountain Fund instead of volunteer placement company A,B,C or D?  It's a fair question and deserves a fair answer. 

1) Most volunteer placement companies that advertise on the internet have no real presence in Nepal. That's probably a shock to many volunteers, but it's true.

Health Volunteers Nepal

A group of our volunteers in Nepal recently visited Orchid Nepal and conducted health and hygiene classes for the kids there. Orchid Garden is a day-care center and school for the children of very poor working families.

Feedback of The Health Camp by Alex Derix

This past weekend, myself and about ten other volunteers had the opportunity to shadow doctors and attend the opening of the Health Camp at Sindhuplachok, Dhandkhola. It was a terrific experience all around--not only did we have more exposure in the medical field, we also met with the villagers and could truly see how a health camp is organized.
