Volunteering

Why become a TOIT volunteer?

Volunteering with TOIT offers you a chance to make a personal difference in the lives of our children while enriching your own life at the same time ! Whether you are coming to Nepal or going to help us in your own country – we have projects that await your energy and enthusiasm. Your program may last from a few days or weeks, to six months or even a year ! We will ensure that your time and energy are well spent. Volunteering is a great way to live in and learn about another culture and an experience you will remember all your life!

Benefits of Volunteering with TOIT

Our efforts focus on providing support to the children. We do not arrange trekking or sightseeing tours, but can direct you to reliable, economical guides and tour operators. When you visit us as a TOIT Volunteer, we will help you arrange housing, meals, and transportation at a reasonable cost.

Accommodation can be arranged in local guesthouse or home stay. Prices range from 10 to 20 € per day per person.

Meals of western style are available in many tourist restaurants or you can have typical Nepali food at such local restaurants. Food prices are low in Nepal as compared to western parts and you can eat well for around Euros 5 per day per person!

Transportation to the airport, Kathmandu or other sites is easily arranged by buses, taxis or bicycles. Inside Bhaktapur you probably won’t need any transportation, since all major sites including the school are within walking distance from the city center and TOIT office.

Our Staff will be here to help you settle in, learn all the tricks of Nepali life, and introduce you to Nepali people and culture. We want your stay with us to be pleasant and productive. After your involvement in the project, you will receive an official certificate for your service stating involvement, achievements and duties of your work with TOIT. If you have any question please contact us for further details.
