Massif Holidays offers different voluntourism programs to match a volunteer’s skill for suitable projects that result in real and lasting benefit to local communities, rather than simply offering travellers the chance to feel better about themselves during a fleeting two-week placement. Hundreds of travelers volunteer in Nepal every year to work on an incredible range of development and conservation projects, covering everything from volunteering with street children in Kathmandu to counting the tracks of endangered animals in the high Himalaya. So lots of travelers volunteer to get much closer to the country and people.
If you’ve ever thought about living and working in Nepal, then why not teach English as a foreign language (TEFL)? It could be the key to funding your travels and experiencing new cultures in a totally new way. You don’t need teaching experience or even the ability to speak the local language – although you might learn it while you’re out there.
