I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
We stay in contact with a number of the children we became close to during our time in Nepal. Some of the kids come from very disadvantaged, difficult backgrounds and it's been humbling to watch their progress particularly when it comes to education. The kids are so appreciative of the home NOH has given them, and are desperate to learn and make the best of the opportunities they have.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I can't see any organisational changes that are required.
Would you volunteer for this group again?
For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?
Did the organization use your time wisely?
Would you recommend this group to a friend?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?
Being more aware in advance that the kids at NOH have limited free time, and that in order to contribute the most in a pratical sense it may be best to consider the volunteer placements that are available.
Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
Volunteering with NOH has had a profound effect on both me and my daughter. We are still in touch with a number of the children that we became close to, and I miss both them and Nepal every day. My daughter was able to see that material wealth doesn't necessarily equal happiness, and to experience a different culture. I also found good friendships with other volunteers that I hope will always last.
How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
Happy, humbled, sad, frustrated at times, fortunate, and like part of a new family.
