Description

Participate in the Environmental Awareness Project, and get the chance to bask in the breathtaking beauty of Nepal, as you contribute to the protection of its environment with our Environmental Awareness Project. The country is home to eight of the highest mountains in the world (they're still growing!), abundant wildlife and lush forests. Nepal is a nature enthusiast’s dream.

But Nepal's natural habitats are under threat. Deforestation and soil erosion has destroyed thousands of hectares in the last few years. Friends for Asia has teamed up with a village-based conservation project in Chitwan to help reverse this worrying trend. The objectives of this project are to:

- Promote environmental awareness and conservation among local children and villages.
- To provide foreign volunteers an opportunity to study and gain new insights into sustainable agriculture, environmental protection and resource management in Nepal.
- To promote community development activities.

Highlights

1. Volunteering in Nepal is a meaningful, cross-cultural experience where volunteers really make a difference.

2. Volunteers live with Nepali families and make a real and lasting difference to the lives of the country's most disadvantaged people.

3. Nestled among the peaks of the Himalayas, Nepal's stunning beauty and unique culture has made it a must-see destination for travelers and trekkers for years.

4. For those looking to get off the tourist trail and see a different view of life in Nepal, Friends for Asia offers a choice of Nepal volunteer opportunities that enrich the lives of volunteers and locals alike.

5. Volunteering in Nepal is an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life with many of our volunteers coming back again and again.
