Nepal is one of the poor and developing countries in the world. Because of being a poor country, children cannot have access to their basic needs and rights. More than half of the country’s people live below the poverty line and it deprives children of their needs. Unfortunately, children find a way to work in the capital city and end up trapped as child labor at restaurants, hotels, and factories. Because of being child labor, the subject many of these children to abuse by their employers. It often leaves them walking on the streets and becomes more vulnerable to living life ahead. This childcare volunteering program in Nepal aims to take these children off the streets and provide them with quality childcare and education, saving them from a life of abuse and neglect.
This Childcare volunteering program in Nepal is for willing volunteers to contribute your love and compassion to these children. You will help the children explore their world and their strengths and abilities. Children need enthusiastic, passionate, and caring volunteers to adhere to the daily work required to give these children quality care. The children will fully enjoy learning if volunteers use fun and engaging activities and games. Volunteers may sometimes accompany the children on the other activities such as Picnic and Movie showing where children often can have fun. The program is available year-round and the duration of program ranges from a week to extendable as per your requirement.
