Most of the orphanages in Nepal are poor resourced , under staffed, and are struggling to run their programs. Osho World Adventure believes that there is urgent need of any kinds of help and support. There are many areas where volunteers can use their education, skills, and time making meaningful contributions in the life of orphan kids of Nepal. Helps are urgently needed in education, skill training, sanitation, and administration.

Home stays and cultural exchange programs in Nepal can be arrange for different part of country. Volunteers involving with this program will be placed with Nepali families inhabitant of small rural village for the duration of their stay. This will provide excellent opportunity to the volunteers to learn about all aspects of Nepali culture, lifestyle, language, food and people. During their stay, volunteers will also get time to teach language lessons in the morning and in the afternoon.
Home stay and cultural exchange programs are best suitable to organize from August to December when most large Nepali festivals take place. This makes for an overall more exciting experience for the volunteer. Nepali culture is distinctively friendly and open and participants are made to feel as though they are part of the family. Please note that if you choose a home-stay/cultural exchange you will be placed with your host family as soon as you arrive in Nepal.

One of the crucial issues in Nepal is quality education in remote areas which need to develop. Most of the schools have poor infrastructure and untrained teachers (above 60%). Volunteers will have an opportunity to promote quality education through the development of teachers, school and local community.
