Work in Nepal
There are lots of foreign people
working in Nepal. While some are designated from their countries,
there are many others who have chosen Nepal as their land of work.
Many foreigners are either in voluntary service or are into various
businesses like restaurants, import-export, etc.
The fascinating culture, heritage and beauty of
Nepal and the people with friendly and helping attitude have got
lots of tourists spellbound, lured and hypnotized towards Nepal.
There are plenty of examples of tourists visiting Nepal for a short
period of time but have been there since then.
Nepal is an easily approachable country for the
tourists from all over the world from many angles. The first and
foremost being the easy and trouble free issuance of visas. Various
types of visas for Nepal can be obtained from the Nepalese Diplomatic
Missions like Royal Nepalese Embassies or Consulates abroad. Visas
are also issued at the immigration offices of eight different entry
points to Nepal including Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu.
Voluntary Jobs in
The process of Gaining by Giving
- Voluntary work is the most beautiful and satisfying work in the
world which teaches us the value of giving. We feel fulfilled when
we give to others rather than when we take and for those giving
ones, who are flexible and open to new culture, self motivated and
always willing to learn with a deep desire to help the people of
Nepal, there are lots of opportunities for voluntary work. Similarly,
there are various sectors to render voluntary service too. The best
source of information on this these days is internet as most of
the voluntary job programs are posted on the websites.
One can be from any background but has to be above
18 years of age to get involved in voluntary work in Nepal. Some
voluntary jobs seek experience like in the field of medicine. The
volunteers would be required to meet their own travel arrangements
but food and lodging would be provided as part of almost all volunteer
placements. By living together with the local host families, the
volunteers will get a chance to explore the unique culture, religion,
lifestyle and environment in one’s day to day life while in
Nepal. This would be somewhat like an exchange program where the
host as well as the volunteer guest will learn a lot from each other
and on top of that the volunteer also get the chance to taste the
traditional Nepalese food.
In most of the cases, the volunteers would get
to learn basic Nepali language too which would enable them to communicate
with the local people and the home stay will be an added advantage
to practice the language more.
Orphanages located in different
parts of Nepal welcomes international volunteers. The volunteers
will take care of the children and teach them other skills like
art and also assist the kids with their school work.
Volunteer Camps offers the chance
to work with other international volunteers and local villagers
on various types of projects ranging from school renovations to
community development projects. The volunteers would also delegate
their physical and technical skills depending upon the projects.
Teaching English to elementary
school children as per the curriculum by the native speakers or
by someone fluent in English. The volunteers will teach a minimum
of three hours a day from Sunday through Friday. The volunteers
will also coordinate with the local teachers to develop new teaching
methods so that these teachers could teach English to the students.
Health Education to school children
- the volunteers will teach the students about health and sanitation
for about two hours each day except Saturday. They will also provide
information on First Aid to the local people.
