Recording oral histories is a very individualized placement: You create a research project and we arrange guides and translators for you, help you create a schedule, advise you on where to go, and offer any needed support. While this is among the least common of our volunteer placements, you will find Nepal to be a country full of stories, and a wonderful place to pursue a passion for writing or storytelling. It helps to be building on past research or a specific interest in a certain facet of Nepali life, culture, or history. We have also had volunteers with filming or photography experience conduct projects documenting rural Nepali life in their own ways. Develop a project idea and we are likely to be able to arrange just the right place for to carry it out.
