Nepal is where Volunteer BaseCamp began. It was where we ran our first project and where we opened our first BaseCamp Center. It is an incredibly beautiful country with a rich and diverse culture and history. Unfortunately, with a lack of accessible natural resources, and a landscape that makes agriculture and development difficult, Nepal is struggling. Listed as one of the world's poorest nations, Nepal faces many economic and social challenges.
Volunteers in Nepal are needed in a wide variety of placements. There is a great need in support for childcare placements as well as child services such as schools and vocational training. Infrastructure repair and improvements, health care and child and women's rights are just some examples of the need.
