Well as a frequent traveler to Nepal, I do like to spend some free time volunteering in this beautiful country. I have known Nepali Host Family organization from the beginning and have seen how they work, taken part in their volunteer programs and today feel great to review the organization. I have volunteered many times with this organization and each time I visit Nepal, I do meet their staffs who have been friends with me and it's like their home is my home. I got to know about them from my friend who also has been a volunteer in Nepal. The highlight of this organization is their Low cost volunteering or internships opportunities. It was hard to believe that they offer cheap volunteer fees compared to others. After actually doing the volunteer work, living in their hostel and watching everyday how they function in Nepal, I was clear about their mission and endeavour. This is a local volunteer organization so it has better understanding of the community, people and needs. The helpful staffs, cultural exchange programs, good Nepali food in hostel, great volunteer projects and an amazing opportunity they provide for the International volunteers in Nepal are the reasons why I would recommend this organization. I have done traveling a lot as well as trekking in Nepal. I have been to villages with their staff doing community volunteering and would like to see Nepali Host Family running their programs far from Kathmandu and spreading to rural parts as well. I would also like to request upcoming volunteers to fundraise before traveling and help the Nepalese society.

Volunteering abroad was my dream and I had looked into various organizations for volunteer opportunities online. Most of the volunteer programs offered there was really out of my budget because I am a University student. I am a medical student in Germany and was looking to volunteer in Nepal. Thank god! I heard about Nepali Host Family from my friend who volunteered with them two years ago. I looked into this organization and got to know about their work in Nepal. From the first email contact to the date of my departure from Nepal, Nepali Host Family staff have provided every kind of support. I fell in love with the small kids from my volunteering placement and I feel very satisfied to be able to volunteer with children in Nepal, a totally new experience. What can I say about Nepal, amazing country and I did Annapurna base camp trekking, Pokhara, Chitwan tour. Nepalese people are so friendly. One early morning, I had to go to Thamel, the center of Kathmandu to catch a bus for my Chitwan trip. Unfortunately that day was a Strike of public transportation in Nepal. So i couldn't find any buses or taxi to go to Thamel. Thamel was 25 minutes away in a taxi from my accommodation. Luckily a Nepali family offered me a ride on their private car. This shows how big heart they have. Well to sum up, I had a good experience in Nepal both traveling and volunteering with Nepali Host Family organization which I would recommend to everybody because they are a Non profit, organized and trustworthy.
