Homestay in Nepal

Homestays and cultural exchange programmes can be arranged in most areas of Nepal with our 35 Host families. Participants will be placed with a Nepali family in a small rural village for the duration of their stay.

This provides the volunteers with an excellent opportunity to learn about all aspects of Nepali culture, lifestyle, language, food and people. Volunteers should remember that this is a cultural exchange and that an effort to offer some knowledge of their own home culture and customs to the family with whom they stay is appreciated. During their stay, volunteers will attend 2 hours of language lessons in the morning and in the afternoon.

They will also have the opportunity to visit and help out at the local school. Home stay programmes are best organised from August to December which is the time when most large local festivals take place. This makes for an overall more exciting experience for the volunteer. Nepali culture is distinctively friendly and open and participants are made to feel as though they are part of the family.
