…I have had the privilege of living and meeting lots of Ladhakis that have taught me very valuable lessons. I had to get out of my comfort zone and learn all about this new culture and that helped me to open my mind and be more flexible with different cultures, religions and opinions. It has been a truly rewarding and unforgettable experience.

It´s hard to summarise such a great experience in a few lines. It was the first time I participated in this kind of volunteering programs so I didn´t know what to expect but if I look back now, it has been one of the most rewarding things I´ve ever done in my life.…

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.

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. They can be proud of their school and the high standards they maintain. The students were delightfully enthusiastic and teaching them was a pleasure. 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.…

HELP is sincerely committed to supporting schools and other projects as best it can. Its priorities are appropriate and relevant. It is especially good to know that it is involved in women’s empowerment in Nepal and I hope support will continue for women’s issues. (Jennifer Harvey: Sikkim, 2015)…

I want to let you know that I have looked at a lot of volunteer organizations since I did your program and you have (as far as I can tell) one of the best. I really like how much you personally care about each volunteer and each school.
