Become a volunteer in KATHMANDU (minimum 4 months mission)

Our main activity is to help children and families in the poor areas of Kathmandu. Our volunteers accept to undertake a mission of at least 4 months, in order to build stable and lasting aid programs. Candidates must be at least 21 years old, fit, motivated and ready to live in the local community (with similar living comforts). There is no superior age limit to apply.

Profiles

Additional teacher in IT and English: Your mission is to support the local teachers by bringing extra knowledge in IT (basic Windows use, excel, word,…) and in English. You are also expected to run extracurricular activities such as reading workshop in the library, arts and craft workshops, educative games and sport activities (football, running, gymnasium).

Kindergarten teacher or health worker: Your mission will be to assist our staff in the nurseries, which allow the mothers to be free to work while babies can grow in a clean and safe environment. You will also have a role in educating the parents in basic hygiene and in improving the family diet. As a health worker, you will be expected to administer first aid and make decisions in case of medical emergencies (analyse the problem, give medicines, dispatch to local hospitals…). Your help is also welcome to run or provide assistance to our local doctors during the monthly health check-ups organised by Mayaa Nepal.

Communication, social media and images: your task will be to develop and promote public awareness about Mayaa Nepal’s work, as well as participate in the actions of the association towards the children. Social media and communication skills are essential. You will be expected to publish newsletters from Nepal in English and if possible in French, improve our overall communication tools. Video making  would be a plus.

Construction industry: Your mission will be to oversee and follow our construction or renovation projects. You will need to manage local workers, ensure that budget and deadlines are respected, anticipate and solve any potential issues and ensure that the work is conform to expectations. You will also be required to advise and help local population and schools to improve their basic infrastructures, regarding both buildings and furniture. The candidate needs to have a good sense of initiative and responsibility.

Agriculture: To improve the quality of nutrition for the children, MAYAA NEPAL runs 2 vegetable gardens. We would be pleased to welcome candidates to improve, diversify, and optimize crops, respecting the environment and natural cycles.
