If you are looking to visit a country that includes adventure, unforgettable experiences and volunteer work then Nepal is the country for you. Projects Abroad is organization to share the experience with. They assist you with all of your travel arrangements, your placement and allow you to experience the Nepali culture first hand. They give you freedom, are flexible and are readily available if you need them.
The Nepali people are welcoming, friendly and are very curious about you when you arrive. They are always willing to help, if it is getting to the correct bus stop, directions to a location, or just wanting to stop and have a friendly chat. The city was safe and was relatively easy to navigate through. The host family was welcoming and made you feel like you were at home.
For five weeks I volunteered at the Sahara Physiotherapy Rehabilitation Hospital in Kathmandu, Nepal through Projects Abroad. The staff at Sahara Physiotherapy Rehabilitation Hospital were welcoming, and willing to teach. They encouraged us to ask questions and to collaborate ideas for alternative forms of treatment. The patients there were motivated and curious about the volunteers who came to visit the clinic.
When I was not working in the clinic I was meeting other volunteers in the organization. We were able to go white water rafting, hiking, jungle safari, paragliding and other tourist activities. It has been a few weeks since I have returned from Nepal and I am still in contact with everyone whom I have met. Needless to say the people you meet are friends for life.
