Join GVI and discover Nepal, a country with one of the densest concentrations of world heritage sites in the world. Your time here will be met with equal parts cultural exploration, trekking the vast Himalayan mountains, and personal development as you learn skills and make an impact with local communities.
Learn about social issues in Nepal and immerse yourself in Nepali traditions. Students will focus on improving the health and safety standards of educational facilities in Pokhara. Projects might include building desks for classrooms or installing water tanks for drinking water. This allows students to directly contribute not only to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (UN SDG) 4: Quality Education, but also others like Goal 3: Health and Wellbeing. Students will also learn about the ethical best practices used to set up international developments like these, including the importance of ensuring these projects are led by the local community.
