School and Community Maintenance

This placement is perfect for the professional tradesman or handyperson who would like to be in the community at large or community school environment. Most of the village schools in Nepal are in very sad shape, very few will have electricity, windows or doors, toilets or running water. Past projects have included taking apart an existing school, pouring a foundation and rebuilding it, running electric and water to schools, building toilets, plastering buildings’ inside and outside brick with cement, painting, bookshelf building and mural painting.

School and Community MaintenanceLandscaping and gardening are welcomed as well. This can be for individuals or groups.  We ask that volunteers choose an environment in which they would like to stay, be it the mountains, jungle, hills, remote or urban, and we will determine the need and then apply part of the volunteers’ fees towards materials.
