“HELP were great to deal with, and provided good advice and support throughout the whole journey. The school really benefitted from having me there which is great, as it makes it feel real and genuinely useful that I was there.…

HELP clearly knows the schools it works with very well and chooses them with great care, concentrating on schools where they can have the greatest impact and where their input is most needed. I was very impressed by that and by the personal nature of the organisation-I was able to ask any questions and contact them while abroad to check anything which worried me.

It was great to work with an organisation with a clear ethos and sense of purpose.They are completely committed to the schools and to finding ways in which they can work with them, while accepting that some things will be done differently there.…

Overall I had a very positive experience working in Nepal with HELP and Himalayan Projects and would recommend others to do the same. I got to see parts of Nepal tourist do not get to see and take part in events that were so special to me. The people I met on this experience will stay with me forever and I am so humbled by their kindness to me. Treating local Nepalese patients was such a unique experience and I was able to learn a lot about local health conditions.…

I’m so glad I came to Nepal through HELP. Some volunteer organisations can seem a bit faceless and impersonal, but this was completely not the case with HELP. With HELP I felt supported and looked out for every step of the way. It felt like an intimate and caring organisation…..The experience was life-changing and utterly priceless. It has steered me in a new direction, given me new understanding, and I will carry it in my heart always.(Joseph Cottrell, Nepal: 2017)…

HELP is a great organisation that I think approaches helping schools in a really good way. I appreciate their values with responsible volunteering that benefits the school foremost. I also appreciate their trust I volunteers whilst on their placement to go about their work. I feel well supported as a volunteer by HELP and would definitely recommend the organisation to friends.

Overall, very good. We loved our placement and felt that we had enough information before we went, although as I have said, we also found out a lot in our first few days in the village. Thank you!

Volunteer testimonial

HELP is a lean and transparent organization that is focused on providing help to Nepali and Indian institutions with a minimum of bureaucratic froufrou. In Nepal, I met volunteers working through other organizations, and they were astounded at the minimum fuss and money that volunteering through HELP entailed. I found HELP though an Internet search. They looked like the best organization through which to volunteer, and I now believe they are the best.

HELP is rare for an organisation offering volunteer teaching in that it puts the needs of the local people before the desires of the western person wanting ‘the experience’.
