Nepal Community Painting

Our Community Painting initiative collaborates with local schools, hospitals, community centers, and libraries in need of a vibrant makeover. Often constrained by limited funds and manpower, these institutions require assistance in revitalizing their spaces. As a volunteer, you’ll leverage your artistic skills to paint murals and inspirational messages, with the community actively participating in this creative transformation.

Projects primarily take place in rural Nepalese communities where financial constraints hinder efforts to paint and enhance local educational and health facilities. Urban painting projects, involving community schools and hospitals, are also available. This program accommodates both individual and group participation, operating throughout the year, with project durations ranging from 1 to 12 weeks.

We encourage volunteers to bring educational painting and drawing ideas, particularly those with painting and art skills.

Nepal Cultural Exchange

The Cultural exchange program offers a wholesome experience to understand the real lifestyle of Nepali people. You will get an opportunity to stay with locals and live like locals. Nepal cultural exchange programs are available in urban modern cities to typical rural village. They all are unique in their own way. As a participant you will stay with a local family which is an excellent way to immerse yourselves in the depth of all aspects of Nepali culture, lifestyle, language, food and people.

Nepali people are known for their kindness, humility, and warmth. This transformative opportunity has the potential to positively change your life forever. The Cultural Exchange program runs year-round, with durations ranging from 1 to 20 weeks. VCD Nepal boasts an extensive network of 100+ host families throughout Nepal.

Nepal monastery experience

Nepal, the birthplace of Gautam Buddha, offers a unique and spiritual experience for volunteers interested in teaching and assisting Buddhist monks. Living within the monastery accommodation, you’ll engage in teaching sessions with monks in the morning or afternoon, depending on the monastery’s schedule.

Patience is key, as monks participate in regular Buddhist pujas and classes. Your commitment to teaching will involve collaboration with fellow volunteers to establish a flexible class system that maintains student interest amidst frequent schedule changes. Your impact as a volunteer hinges on your motivation to understand the monks as individuals and learners. The teaching duration is 2 to 3 hours a day, catering to monks aged 6 to 20 years old. The teaching Buddhist monks volunteer program operates year-round, but due to religious ceremonies and pujas at the monastery, classes may be interrupted. Volunteers are welcome to join these religious events. The program duration ranges from 1 to 20 weeks.

In addition to teaching, take the opportunity to organize recreational activities for the monks, contributing to their understanding of the outside world. Be mindful that despite their monastic life, the monks are regular individuals, and your true impact lies in fostering genuine relationships.
