Volunteer's Testimonial

Myself and 4 friends decided to give a week of our lives helping children in Orphanages in Kathmandu, Nepal . We joined the charity organisation, IVHQ, and took the 10 hour flight to Nepal. I was at the orphanage children Home in Dhapasi.
The Himalayan Foundation orphanage children home is a church, the children pray alongside the pastor and his family. For 5 days I lived and worked with 13 children, helped with homework, enjoyed playtime and took them to school. They were aged between 4 - 14 years old.

We took gifts, clothes donated by friends, toys, colouring books, crayons, pavement chalks, stickers, modelling balloons, various learning books, pencils, rubbers, sharpeners. We made up games, handed out prized stickers if they did their homework. orphanage children are very intelligent orphanage children that deserve a helping hand in life. They work hard, pray hard and play hard.
orphanage children all fight for your attention, but this orphanage children just need love and cuddles, some attention and help with study. You simply cant focus on one child, but when you watch, you realise, given a little help, some stand just a little more chance in setting and achieving a goal in life.

The Orphanage is clean, the water is hot and the children are happy, all you can ask for is a smile
If you would like to live with a very hospitable host family and want to help children that are from poor backgrounds , this is the perfect place to give you a challenge whilst giving you an amazing insight into Nepal.
I will cherish this experience and come back to visit in the coming years.
Thank you and Kindest regards
