Mate and Tinghare

In this program, interested individuals, students, tourists, professionals, organizations, and other groups can give support by contributing funds and materials or by getting involved themselves in construction programs, whilst simultaneously touring different areas of Nepal.

Most of the schools, orphanages and health centers in Nepal do not have basic physical infrastructure such as toilets, proper classrooms, playgrounds, libraries, or even drinking water. Therefore, children and the overall local community face many problems and often find it difficult to get service from institutions. We provide interested institutions with participants who are ready to help to build basic infrastructures and other desperately needed improvements.

Kathmandu

You will also be able to participate in renovation and construction activities in schools, children’s home, rehabilitation centers. During this project, you will be staying in Kathmandu at our center.
