The Mountain Fund: The Mountain Volunteer Nepal


The Mountain Volunteer Nepal is a program of the The Mountain Fund, a US based NGO with a decade of development experience in Nepal. The Mountain Fund's founder, Scott MacLennan, received the 2010 Sir Edmund Hillary Medal for the work he, and The Mountain Fund have done over the past decade.

 

Our volunteer program is part of our ongoing mission to help the people of Nepal. We need volunteers to teach English, work with at-risk children or help in hospitals. We will host you in our own, beautiful home in a VIP area of Kathmandu and our family and dedicated, long-term staff will help you while in Nepal to ensure that you have the trip of a lifetime while helping others.

Volunteer Teachers Needed in Nepal for Rural Education in English and Computers

The Little School That's Teaching a Village
In the village of Mankhu, there is a small primary school. It's not very good and too many children drop out of school early. At Her Farm (see project #9523) we're working to keep kids in school by offering a before and after school program that helps with homework and teaches them English as well. We also started day-care and early childhood education so that women no longer have to take their children with them in the fields while they work. We educate, we feed the children good meals.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Expand your teaching skills and world view by volunteering in Nepal!  A wonderful opportunity to make a difference in the world.

Alternative building methods taught at Her Farm | News From Nepal - The Mountain Fund News

Alternative building methods taught at Her Farm | News From Nepal - The Mountain Fund News | Nepal - The Mountain Volunteer: Heal - Teach - Build | Scoop.it
More than 80% of the homes in Mankhu were destroyed or seriously damaged in the April, 2015 earthquake and subsequent aftershocks. The challenge that lies ahead is how to rebuild and make these homes safer. The typical village home is made with stones and mud mortar. While there is a center beam in the home, there's no structural component that ties all the walls together, such as a ring beam, so each wall moves independent of the others.

About Volunteering in Nepal

About Volunteering in Nepal | Nepal - The Mountain Volunteer: Heal - Teach - Build | Scoop.it
The Mountain Volunteer. Life-changing experiences is what we offer
The Mountain Volunteer was founded by Scott and Sunita as a natural outgrowth of their dedication and service to Nepal as The Mountain Fund our 501c3 charity. 

Scott MacLennan began serving in Nepal over a decade ago and established health clinics and hospitals in rural communities. In 2010 he was recognized for the Sir Edmund Hillary Medal for his service in Nepal. Sir Edmund Hillary was the first to climb Mt. Everest, the world's highest peak, which is located in Nepal. 

Sunita Subedi Sharma (MacLennan) was born and raised in Nepal. Her childhood memories are of persecution for having been born a daughter, rather than a son. Since early childhood she's felt in the most personal and direct means, the oppression that women in Nepal face daily. Later, after suffering domestic abuse in an arranged marriage, she left that marriage and determined to dedicate her life to helping women and children in Nepal to have a better life. 



Together we invite you to be a part of our work, to join with us in helping women and children and improving lives for thousands in Nepal. 
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Volunteer to work with people who have made a lifelong commitment to improve human rights and living conditions in Nepal.

Stop Making Paper Orphans of Nepal's Children | A Mountain Fund Project

Stop Making Paper Orphans of Nepal's Children | A Mountain Fund Project | Nepal - The Mountain Volunteer: Heal - Teach - Build | Scoop.it
Every year hundreds of Nepali children are turned into "paper orphans" just because their parents cannot care for them and work at the same time. One of the only affordable day-care centers in Kathmandu, the Orchid Garden, has the solution to this problem. A safe, affordable place for children to stay and learn while poor parents work to just get that day's meal. Perhaps as many as 60% of Nepal's "orphans" are economic orphans and should not be in institutions, but in day care. (source UNICEF)
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Mountain Fund and Mountain Volunteer provides opportunities for volunteer teachers who want to work in Nepal.  Contact us for details about this life changing experience.
