Corporate Volunteer Abroad

Volunteer Society Nepal offers a wide variety of Corporate Volunteer Abroad projects for corporate groups to get involved around the world. Our goal is to take the pressure off your organization by arranging safe, rewarding, and enjoyable trips for corporate employees. A corporate volunteering group trip provides great benefits to a community in a developing country. In addition, it generates business value in the form of increased employee engagement and opportunities for team-building. A meaningful and impactful way for professionals to make a difference in the social sector, Corporate Volunteer Abroad is also an effective way for employers to build staff skills. Both freshers and experienced employees can learn how to develop leadership, organizational and teamwork skills. With such benefits of corporate social projects, medium-sized enterprises, and start-ups along global giants have begun working on them. This, in turn, is serving the dual purpose of benefiting both the local communities as well as the workforce.

Ideas for Corporate Volunteer Abroad:

For corporate groups, we recommend:

  • Building Projects – Build science laboratory or a classroom, library, or sports facilities for a school
  • Childcare and Community Projects – Renovate a childcare center and help teach critical Early Childhood Development Skills
  • Child Sponsorship – It is an incredibly powerful way to help one poor child become healthy, well-educated, and empowered.
  • Women Empowerment – Teach basic English, Math, life skills, workshop and income-generating methods

Corporate Volunteer Abroad Program Highlights:

  • Companies benefit through motivated employees and improved brand and reputation.
  • Employees benefit through new skills development, an improved ability to work with people from different cultures, and better communication skills.
  • Local communities benefit from the new skills they learned and the services that have been provided by the corporate volunteers.
  • Enabling local organizations and communities to have a better understanding of, and engagement with, the private sector.

We understand that employees do not have the liberty to spend 3 – 4 weeks volunteering abroad or locally, hence, we provide tailor-made programs for corporates. If you are a business owner or representative who wants to be part of the corporate volunteer abroad programs please feel free to drop us an email or contact.

"My Physiotherapy Internship in Nepal experience with Volunteer World Nepal was a fantastic one, and I’d recommend that anyone looking to explore Nepal and experience its wonderful culture in a unique way plan with this organisation. Before even landing in Nepal, my trip facilitator Umesh ensured that any questions or concerns I had regarding the trip were addressed, and from the very first day I..."

Orientation begins on the morning of next day your arrival and covers everything you need to know for your volunteer program in Nepal – an introduction to Nepal, Nepalese customs, language training details, rules and expectations, safety, travel opportunities in Nepal, and an introduction to your project and placement. The orientation will also give you a chance to visit local temples, sample authentic Nepali food, meet other volunteers and swap contact details for weekend travel and socializing. The program may vary depending on your time of arrival. We will manage to include all below mentioned activities in you introduction program.
• Arrival and introduction host family
• Survival Nepali lessons and cultural discussion
• Local amenities and sightseeing and project start

On arrival in Nepal, volunteers stay in a host family in Kathmandu for their orientation.

Volunteers are then accommodated together in homestays and hosted by local families who have been approved by our program staff. We give your host family a fee for your support, food and board. It is exciting to stay with a host family, providing you with a unique opportunity to learn about the Nepalese way of life, meet local people, try traditional food and speak the local language – especially when host families in Nepal tend to have limited English.

Living is basic but comfortable and most homestays have electricity and running water, with the exception of some rural homestays which are without these conveniences during the dry season. Squat toilets are the norm in Nepal and you will not come across many western toilets. Volunteers can also expect low-pressure showers that are generally not heated; however, this is refreshing after a day in the heat.

You can expect to share a room with one to three other volunteers and bedrooms have single beds and bunk beds with bedding provided. It is recommended volunteers bring their own sleeping bags and mosquito nets for any trips away.

WiFi is available in most of the volunteer homestays. If you would like to keep connected during your stay, we recommend bringing an unlocked mobile phone and purchasing a local SIM card when you arrive in Nepal.

The staple meal for most Nepali families is dal bhat, which consists of lentil soup (dal), rice (bhat) and vegetables in curry (tarkari) and/or meat (masu) with a side of pickle/sauce (achar). Volunteers are served two meals per day at their homestay and can purchase additional food to supplement this if they wish.

Volunteers can have a meaningful impact on Nepalese communities by providing assistance with a wide range of activities that help make life, and the future, better for local people. Volunteer World Nepal has a number of volunteer projects in Nepal. Some are located on the outskirts of the capital city of Kathmandu in rural and urban areas, while others are in Pokhara and Salleri. Pokhara is located in mid-western Nepal and is a popular tourist destination, renowned for its amazing mountain views. Salleri is the Everest Mountain region: beautiful landscapes, hillsides dotted with villages, a lively weekend bazaar, a Tibetan camp, and many spectacular Buddhist monasteries. In Salleri you can teach in Schools, teach English in a monastery, work in a Health Clinic or work in Construction. Salleri is a small Himalayan Region town that serves as the headquarters of the Solukhumbu District.
