Helping others be healthy is only one of the responsibilities Devi has taken on in her remote village, where she serves as a community health volunteer. She is 35 years old, and one of approximately 50,000 people trained in everything from sanitation and nutrition to modern hygiene.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

One of the mottos of the Mountain Fund is "Doing what works to give a hand up, not a handout." 


If you decide to Volunteer in Nepal, you can teach, build, or heal in a way that transforms your vision of the world, while helping the people of Nepal to take care of themselves. 


Step up!

HER Farm: Changing the World for Women in Nepal

HER Farm: Changing the World for Women in Nepal | Nepal - The Mountain Volunteer: Heal - Teach - Build | Scoop.it
The most touching moment I can think of, that demonstrates our impact, involves an 82 year old grandmother from the Brahmin caste (high caste). During the aftermath of the quakes, many families came together at Her Farm to create a communal kitchen. This meant families from all castes.

 

One day a woman voiced her discontent at eating food from a kitchen where low caste women were working, as some of our girls are Dalit (untouchable caste).

 

Grandma looked at the woman, and said:

“What does that matter now, we suffer together, and we’ll eat together.”

Or words to that effect. A huge breakthrough moment that an 82 year old high caste woman would think, must less utter those words out loud. She’s our immediate neighbour, she’s been around Her Farm a lot, and it has changed her thinking, or at least softened her position on some things.

All inclusive Volunteer Experiences in Nepal

All inclusive Volunteer Experiences in Nepal | Nepal - The Mountain Volunteer: Heal - Teach - Build | Scoop.it
Dear Volunteer. 

We've tried to make this easy for you and provided a way that you can book online, much the same way you'd make a hotel reservation or book a flight. Thank you for choosiing us to host you in Nepal. 

PRICING - the price includes total, twenty-four hour a day support from our staff, a clean room in a modern house in a secure location, breakfast and dinner daily, wi-fi, bedding, towels and unlimited friendliness. 

It couldn't be easier. Pick your dates, choose your program (which you can also change later) and click on "book now."   30 days prior to your start date you'll be sent an invoice to pay. There is no payment required to reserve a place unless you are booking less than one week before your start that. In that case, payment in full is required. 
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

This is an "all inclusive" volunteer experience. You work directly with the people of Nepal.  Room, Board, and a transformative experience await.

Young women are growing hope at Her Farm: Volunteer in Nepal

Young women are growing hope at Her Farm: Volunteer in Nepal | Nepal - The Mountain Volunteer: Heal - Teach - Build | Scoop.it

Scott MacLennan:


"When we started Her Farm we had a vision of women coming from abusive family situations and living at the farm where they could support themselves and their children.


That's still our mission and vision at the farm, however something else is taking place at the farm, something unexpected and wonderful. For the past two years as we've been working to get all the infrastructure in place to house and feed women and educate their children the farm has been managed by young women.


These young women have proven to themselves and to everyone else just how capable they are.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

You can volunteer in Nepal at Her Farm.  Come to Nepal to teach, build or heal.  Help empower Nepali women as they create a sustainable organic farm in Nepal.
