How Can I Help?
Sponsor a Child
Going to school in Nepal is as little as $1 a day, $365 a year and if you want to sponsor them for the 6 years of High school education it is $2190. Which could be paid in 3-4 instalments. Our mission is to encourage girls to stay in education and to assist children in villages to move into secondary education, which can mean boarding school in larger cities sometimes 3 -4 days trek away.
Sponsor a Nurse
In the village of Arnakot Deurali in the Western Region of Nepal they are 4 days trek to the nearest Hospital. It is difficult to get good health care in the village, however with your help we can sponsor a full time Nurse to live and work in the village and provide quality health care, education and medicine when needed.
You can sponsor a Nurse from $5 – $5000.
To maintain consistency we need to raise approx. $10,000pa for a nurse to stay in the village.
Sponsor a Volunteer
Maybe you can’t volunteer, however you could send somebody else in your place!! Imagine this life changing gift, you could sponsor a person to come and trek and volunteer with us, not only are you helping a person who may have a lot to give or would benefit from the experience, but your also helping others in Nepal…. The ultimate gift. Talk to us for more details on this one.
We offer tailored volunteering opportunities with 3 different organisations.
We work with www.arnakotdeurali.org, www.karmaflights.org and Chetana womens skill development.
Projects are changing often with different needs or actions required, so we will work with you to create a personalised volunteering experience, that not only gives you the feeling of contribution and reward, but also is focused on empowering and supporting Nepali people.
Some examples of volunteering programs might be:
- Working at the Health post in Arnakot Deurali. ( health qualifications necessary, graduates ok)
- Rebuilding schools and other buildings damaged from the Earthquake.
- Assisting in education programs, in schools, health or other environment.Cross-cultural sharing, business development and or training to Nepali people (insert your given skill here) Workshops etc.

Buy locally made, this creates industry, and improves the economy of Nepal
Our Nepalese hand crafted products are sourced through ethical means and we make sure that they are fair trade standard, which supports local craftsmen and women, in particular Chetana women’s skill development and their training programs in remote villages. see our online shop.
More about Chetana Womens Skill Development:
Tara Timilshana is the founder of this small, but inspiring little weaving community. She spends her days, educating young women in remote villages on how to weave cotton in a unique Himalayan way and then buys the finished woven fabrics back the villages to create and design amazing bags. She has a workshop and shop in Pokhara and this is the front of her social enterprise. These women earn an income and in doing so are able to support themselves. In a country like Nepal this is not easy, they are the lucky ones… Tara’s mission is to provide training to more villagers and improve her reach internationally, so that more women in Nepal can have secure income and become independent. She also needs to pay for the training they need and sewing machines.
