Nepal is a country in the Himalayan Mountains in South Asia. The highest elevation in Nepal is Mount Everest – the highest mountain on earth. Nepal was never colonised but acted as a buffer between its neighbours, China and India.
Nepal is on the UN’s list of the least developed nations and suffers from high levels of hunger and poverty.
AidCamps has led projects in Nepal since 2004 with our partner, RCDP. You can find out more about RCDP on Our Partners page.
Our Projects in Nepal
So far, we have worked with RCDP to create and repair classrooms in several schools of varying sizes in the Chitwan Valley area of Nepal, including the Salghani School Development Project. Several independent volunteers and family groups have also had placements in Nepal, and our corporate partner, AkzoNobel, has delivered a number of private projects for their staff with AidCamps in Nepal.
Shree Kaparphori Secondary School, Nepal
Replacing dilapidated classrooms with a new classroom block
Volunteers from the BAFFA group within AkzoNobel spent two weeks in Nepal working at the Shree Kaparphori Secondary School near Bharatpur, Chitwan to replace a dilapidated set of basic classrooms with a two-storey six classroom block.
"We organised a sports session and relay games for the children, which they loved. The sack race proved the most popular. "

Ethiopia is a beautiful country, most of it high on a plateau. We spent the middle weekend in the Simien Mountains which really helped us appreciate the rugged terrain.

We stepped out into the sunny Nepal afternoon and so began the most amazing emotional journey I had ever been on. 3 weeks that would change my perspective on life!

You need to be reasonably fit and if you like to meet people on your travels (and do something that is so worthwhile) then give it a go! If I can do it, then so can most others. You won't regret it.
