Is volunteer construction work in Nepal right for me?

Our building programme for high school students is perfect for any teenager wanting to travel for a good cause. You’ll make a visible difference and give Nepali children the chance to continue learning in safe classrooms.


You don’t need any building experience. We have a team of skilled masons, architects, and engineers ready to assist you. Work is guided, safe, and gives you on-the-ground insight into basic building techniques. 


Experience days on a real building site, ask staff questions, and learn from their expertise. Add your volunteering experience onto your CV and talk about it when you apply to university or for a job. 


This project is specifically designed for teenagers. We have a set itinerary in place and extra staff support available.

What will I do on this project?

The more willing hands that join us, the quicker we’re able to build more classrooms for young children in Nepal. You'll be working with a group of other teenagers, so you can have a big impact in a short amount of time. Here are some of the tasks you can expect to do:


  • Build classrooms from the ground up
  • Renovate existing classrooms
  • Take part in activities with the children
  • Experience Nepali culture during excursions and trips

Your work will focus on the following areas:


Build classrooms from the ground up


On arrival in Nepal, you get your hands dirty straight away! Dig foundation trenches, put your strength into mixing cement and concrete, and lay bricks as a supervisor guides you. This is also a great opportunity for you to speak to the experts on site about building techniques and how to pursue a career in engineering, architecture, or as a mason. 


Renovate existing classrooms


Learning should be fun, engaging, and take place in a colourful environment. One of your main tasks will be to help renovate new classrooms. Let your creativity shine; paint walls from ceiling to floor or create murals of the ABCs or 123s. This will not only brighten the classroom, but can be used by the teacher for lessons at a later time.  


Take part in activities with the young children


Another aspect of this project is being able to meet and play with the children who’ll learn in the classrooms you’re building. Learn some Nepali from the kids and teach them a bit about your home country.


Experience Nepali culture during excursions and trips


Your time in Nepal will be guided by a jam-packed schedule filled with rewarding work and the opportunities to have heaps of fun! Enjoy a weekend trip to Pokhara and visit the ancient temple of Changu Narayan. Also use your time in Nepal to shop for traditional clothing and souvenirs, or learn Nepali during language classes.


Where in Nepal will I be working?

Kathmandu

During this Building High School Special, the bustling city of Kathmandu will be your home. Take advantage of a once in a lifetime opportunity to live and work in Nepal, home to the Himalayas.


Most of your short term project will see you working at school building sites to rebuild and renovate classrooms. You will stay in safe and comfortable accommodation organised by Projects Abroad.


Eager to experience the cultural and tourist side of Nepal during your volunteering trip? Your schedule is loaded with quiz nights, a chance to souvenir shop, a weekend trip to Pokhara, and so much more!


Ankomst, visum och hämtning

När du anländer till flygplatsen i din valda destination, kommer en av våra Projects Abroad anställda att möta dig och hälsa dig välkommen till landet. Du hittar mer information om ankomstflygplatser, introduktion och visum på vår sida Ankomst i Nepal.


What are the aims and impact of this project?

The aim of this project is to build classrooms for schools destroyed during the earthquakes that struck in 2015. By May 2017, we had rebuilt 96 classrooms with the help of more than 500 volunteers. Because of these efforts, more than 2,000 children were able to resume schooling in safe classrooms. What a feat!


We continue to send volunteers to Nepal to build classrooms which will become places where young students learn and thrive. Your short building project will leave a visible and positive impact in the local Nepali community and in the lives of the young children long after you’ve left.


“I felt so grateful to all Projects Abroad volunteers for helping out our school during such a difficult time. I also don’t have a word to thank them. I have seen them working so hard in the heat and rain to complete the school. I will always be grateful for all the volunteers of Projects Abroad,” said Sunrise School Principal, Mr. Surendra Maharjan.


Lastly, this project is also about giving you the opportunity to travel safely to a unique destination and make new friends from other parts of the globe. Come and join us this summer!

Vi mäter resultatet av vårt arbete varje år

Varje år deltar tusentals ungdomsvolontärer på våra projekt runt om i världen. Under deras tid utomlands bidrar de till att göra en långsiktig positiv skillnad i de samhällen där de arbetar. För att visa vilket resultat deras hårda arbete har, sammanställer vi varje år en rapport som heter High School Specials Impact repor.

För mer information om den insats våra ungdomsvolontär gjort under året, läs vår senaste rapport.


Mat och boende

Du kommer dela boende med andra Projects Abroad volontärer och praktikanter under din tid i Kathmandu. Det här är ett fantastiskt sätt att lära känna varandra, dela era upplevelser och utforska omgivningarna tillsammans.

Vi försöker alltid placera våra ungdomsvolontärer så att de delar rum med en annan Projects Abroad volontär eller praktikant, av samma ålder och kön. Ditt rum kommer vara enkelt men bekvämt, rent och säkert.

Din projektavgift inkluderar tre måltider om dagen.
