Nepal Orphans Home attends to the welfare of children in Nepal who are orphaned, abandoned, or not supported by their parents. NOH provides for the children’s basic needs of food, shelter, and clothing, as well as schooling and health care, and administers to their emotional needs with love and compassion, allowing them to grow up in a nurturing environment. Our mission is not just to rescue children from abject poverty, but to enable the children to develop and realize their potentials.
In 2018 Nepal Orphans Home began its fourteenth year of operations, providing for seventy-six children in three Papa’s Houses and twenty young adults independently living in transition housing while attending college preparatory classes. Nearly half of the children provided for are former Kamlari girls rescued from indentured servitude. Volunteer Nepal, our affiliate volunteer program, draws talented, compassionate people, annually hosting a hundred volunteers from across the world. The Chelsea Education and Community Center began its sixth year of academic enrichment, vocational and life skills training for Papa’s House children and its fourth year of adult literacy classes to local women in the community of Dhapasi.

Reviews for Nepal Orphans Home Inc
I spent 6 weeks volunteering at Manmohan Memorial Community hospital in Pharping which was organised through Nepal Orphans Home. They were very helpful and professional in helping me to organise my placement before I arrived in Nepal, and during my trip the support offered was just at the right level. I visited the orphans home, and it seemed like a very friendly, welcoming, and well provisioned place to grow up. I am pleased that my money has gone towards such a worthwhile organisation.
I was given the address of this organization " Volunteer Nepal " by Kopan Monastery. My adventure in Kathmandu was really great and this experience has changed I can say my life.
All people @ Volunteer's house are special: Sunita/Shreya/Saroj/Himal.
I knew all staff all fantastic. The house is clean / food very good/ good organization I was never alone so I felt secure and protected during my visits to the city and to the orphanage.
I' m very satisfied to have had this opportunity and it was very useful for my spiritual and personal growth.
I have been volunteering with Nepal Orphans Homes since 2009 from the U.S. and on the ground in Nepal. I have spent time in rural placements in Nepal, taught in the Kathmandu Valley, stayed in the volunteer house and have come to know the directors, advisers, volunteers, and the staff in Nepal. Over the past nine years I have come to know the organization as family, which I know is the experience of many other volunteers. I have made friends from all over the world during my time in Nepal. During my last visit (July 2018), my husband and I stayed in the volunteer house with our seven year old son. We spent the majority of our time volunteering at Chelsea Center and enjoying time with the children and college students. We did some sightseeing as well. The young men who run the volunteer house are former children on NOH (or maybe it's best said "forever children of NOH") and were kind and thoughtful when interacting with our son and helpful in making arrangements when our poor Nepali skills didn't suffice. I could share hundreds of stories that convey the confidence and admiration I have for this organization, but the jest of it is that it is an organization run by honest, hard working, caring, compassionate and accepting people. I highly recommend Nepal Orphans Home for anyone looking to make a positive impact in a country where poverty is overwhelming, but so is the kindness of its people. Whether you travel to Nepal to volunteer, raise money from afar or make a donation, your time, money and energy will be well spent. - - - Pictured: Sightseeing at Swayambhunath Temple, my son walking with the children of NOH to school, the children of NOH, volunteers on the balcony of the volunteer house.
I'm 14 years old and volunteered at NOH with my family during my school break. I loved getting to know all the kids who are so friendly and fun! I helped run some workshops like a book talk and I also got to volunteer at different outreach programs like a blind home and a baby orphanage. It was a great experience and I can't wait to go back soon!
I volunteered for NOH in March 2018. I was impressed by both the professionalism and the humanity that I saw here. NOH provides volunteer opportunities in the Kathmandu Valley as well as in areas around Nepal. In all cases, it seemed that the focus was on providing services that were helpful and practical for the population served, not simply a desire to attract volunteers and voluntourism dollars. In my experience, NOH is well-organized and oriented to truly helping. I had a very positive impression and look forward to working with them again.
I recently spent two weeks volunteering as part of a large group visit to Nepal. I was quite nervous about what i could offer these people however I needn't have been as the organizers made us all feel welcome and valued our input into the lives of those that we met. Accommodation, food and orientation to the local area and culture was perfect. Placements are varied, and well supported. The service that Nepal Orphans Home and Volunteer Nepal provide to the community is fantastic. I would not hesitate to recommend anyone considering volunteer work to contact these people and become part of the growing family.

Volunteering with The Nepal Orphans Home was such a beautiful and eye-opening experience. I’d met and worke lots of amazing people and learnt so much about Nepali culture along the way. I taught at EDUC Nepal and worked children at the school. They were all absolutely gorgeous and intelligent. I miss them all. Our guides were so very helpful and accomodating and I feel that we grew very close in those 10 days we’d spent there. It’s almost like we were family. Overall having volunteered with this organisation, it was the most enriching time of my life. I am planning, even now, to return in a couple months.

Our school went and did some volunteer work and it was absolutely incredible! Everyone was so polite and kind, it was an amazing experience. I'd definitely recommend to anyone thinking about doing volunteer work overseas.

Fabulous place to stay, wonderful food and facilities. Most importantly the people are amazing. They truly know how to make you feel like you have a home away from home. Working with the children is such a heartwarming experience. A must for all!
My child recently did some volunteer work with Nepal Orphans Home. I can’t rave enough about this organisation. They give so much to very needy people and make real changes to these peoples lives. Fantastic work team
