Voluntourism in Nepal | The National

Voluntourism in Nepal | The National: "In recent years, more and more visitors to Nepal have begun to include community service in their itineraries. When I planned a trip to the landlocked South Asian country, I decided to follow suit.

Twenty volunteers from Australia, the United States and Asia convened at the Kathmandu Peace Guest House in the heart of Thamel Bazaar the night before we left for our assignment. The trip was organised for our group by International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ), a New Zealand-based organisation set up by Dan Radcliffe in 2007, which collaborates with a local registered partner (such as the Kathmandu-based Hope and Home) to provide education, community development and medical and wildlife conservation travel programmes in about 30 different countries."
