WHAT DO YOU THINK OF HELP?: A charity far and away from volun-tourism.

WHAT DID YOU GET OUT OF THE EXPERIENCE PERSONALLY?: It was both a hugely rewarding and challenging experience. I learned a lot of my abilities as a language teacher (and not a small amount about patience too). I felt truly immersed in a small Ladakhi community and feel confident that I helped in my own small way.

(Brian Connon, Ladakh: 2016)

My two-month volunteer teaching experience in West Sikkim was thoroughly fulfilling. I was warmly welcomed by the hard-working couple, Rajib and Radhika Thapa, who founded and run the school.

Many live at the school hostel, which also includes accommodation for a volunteer. The school is surrounded by beautiful green hills with plenty of opportunities for local hiking and exploration.…

Its been a few years now since my time with JN Memorial school (2011) but I still remember it as one of the most peaceful and precious times of my life. I hold great hopes of returning one day, which I hope might be possible. I now have a small baby so it might only be as a visitor unless she’s old enough to join a class (!). I will be forever grateful to you for allowing me the experience of working with HELP and living with the most wonderful Durga family, who will always hold a special place in my heart.…

“I think HELP is one of the best organization in Nepal. A lot of volunteer-organizations are focused on tourism, what is HELP not at all. HELP is a small organization and I think therefore very effective.” (Marco Saaltink, Nepal: 2014)…

(HELP is) “A very important charity which made volunteering cheap and affordable. I did what I set out to do – teach English. Other companies e.g. i2i seem to charge a fortune for a placement and I don’t think I would have had as much freedom to teach in the way I wanted with them.” (Emma Metcalfe, Leh: 2014)…
