Health, Sanitation & Hygiene Education Volunteering / Internship in Nepal

Project Background

Volunteer or complete an internship in Health, Sanitation and Hygiene Education program and help to develop the skills of rural communities in nutrition, personal hygiene, sanitation, addictions, mental health, sexual health and reproductive health. You will work with groups of women and children and in government schools to provide guidance on current health practices and build awareness of major health risks. You will also work to mobilise groups of children and youths to act as advocates for health, sanitation and hygiene within the community, organising rallies or performing street drama in order to convey crucial messages to the entire community.


As a volunteer or intern, you too will become part of the local community; living with a Nepali host family you will be immersed in the rich culture and language of Nepal.

Your Experience

By providing health, hygiene and sanitation education you will be making a sustainable difference to the lives of hundreds of Nepali people. You will typically work up to six hours a day, five to six days a week.


Throughout your placement you will have the full support of our local team. On arrival you will be greeted at Kathmandu Tribhuvan International the airport and transported to your hotel. You will then receive a comprehensive three-day induction, during which time you will be provided with information about your particular placement as well as general information, including basic Nepalese language and culture. This is also a good time to mix with other volunteers or interns who may be great sight-seeing companions and a source of support during your volunteer placement.


During the induction you will be accommodated in a hotel. However, a large part of the experience comes from the immersion of a home stay with a Nepalese host family. While this is an essential part of the experience we also recognise that it can be a challenging one, becoming part of a new culture and becoming accustomed to facilities that will be more basic than those you are used to.


However, all our host families are experienced in accommodating participants – although their ability to speak English will vary – and you will have 24 hour access to contact and support from our staff members during your placement.
