I volunteered for one week at the hospital and stayed at the volunteer hostel in Kalanki Mandir, Kathmandu. The hostel consists of two rooms (four beds in one and five beds in the other, one bathroom each room) in which volunteers stay. It's safe to leave your luggage, passport, ect. in the room.
Volunteering at the hospital mostly consists of shadowing.
The pollution in Kathmandu is challenging. Just giving a heads up.
I volunteered at a school for a few days at a school, and I would recommend that if you enjoy children.
The staff in the hostel are very kind and supportive.

The people of the program were very friendly and I felt very welcomed. Very close to many attractions in Kathmandu, and such. My program was the hospital and it was mostly a shadowing experience. You could walk in and observe the ICU and ER, or just observe surgeries in the afternoon. Was a great experience, I recommend it.

This was my second time volunteering in Nepal through RCDP. I previously volunteered in an orphanage in Kathmandu and wanted to return to volunteer in a hospital. I spent one week at a nearby hospital at which I mostly shadowed doctors and nurses. It was an interesting look into the healthcare system of a country other than my own. It is not interactive but you have the opportunity to talk with doctors and visit all parts of the hospital. Staying at the hostel is nice, and you have all meals prepared for you daily. Volunteering through this organization has been a nice way to learn about the culture of Nepal and meet fellow travelers!

Volunteering through the conservation program in Chitwan area was a very enriching experience. We stayed at a welcoming family and learnt a lot from their culture and way of life. Working at the plant nursery brought us some knowledge about eco-agriculture. We had the chance to go to Sauraha national park which is about 30 km away from Rampur area. We had no particular problem with food. Almost everything we needed was already paid or provided by the organization. Usually people are happy to help when you are in need (when they speak English). Landscapes are wonderful, especially at sunset. We spent the last 2 days in Katmandu. There are many things to explore in that city. I highly recommend to ask for famous monuments and districts.

I did my project for 3 weeks in the south of Nepal, in Chitwan. I was with a friend of mine and we were sharing a room in a family. The family was very welcoming and as we were with the manager of the project, the whole family was speaking English very well so communication was pretty easy. Concercing the work, we were working on a field for the conservation project and we were seeding trees and some vegetable to distribute to the local community. I found the project very fulfilling and I really felt like it was useful.
RCDP Nepal is one of the few organization which give all the money in Nepal and so we know our money will help the locals, not like many other company where money don't even leave the US.
