Overview

Our newest programme focuses on community development in the mountain villages of Nepal. This programme gives you unique access to live in a small community helping develop education, infrastructure & agriculture.
Nepal has some of the most iconic landscapes on earth and is home to the highest mountain range in the world, with 10 peaks reaching more that 5 miles in height! This beautiful country is located in the Himalayas, and borders on China in the north and India in the west, east and south. Home to nearly 30 million citizens, sadly 20% of these are living in poverty which rates Nepal as the 5th poorest country in Asia.

Infrastructure

Overview

At Travelteer we understand that for education to advance, students must have their basic needs covered. Through our ‘school lunch’, ‘classroom revamp’ and ‘one child, one light’ schemes we can provide a platform for students to excel.

In addition to teaching lessons, volunteers will paint classrooms and other school facilities - helping provide children with a cleaner, brighter space to learn. Fundraising from volunteers has already had a huge impact on schools - providing school lunches and reading lights for students in multiple schools.

Time to get your hands dirty!

We partner with each community to help contribute to the village’s agriculture. Travelteer helps build plastic greenhouses with drip irrigation and water harvesting projects and all harvest produce is used in the local communities.

Project

Strategy

Overview

The mountainous regions of Nepal offer our volunteers a real eye-opening experience - with breathtaking landscapes, fascinating culture and welcoming people, but infrastructure within the communities can be pretty basic.

Travelteer's fundraising aims to make a big impact on these mountain communities, investing in the infrastructure that will provide children with brighter futures. Our sustainable projects have already improved agriculture, educational equipment and living conditions in a number of villages and we're just getting started!

We have built 15 plastic greenhouses that will be used to cultivate new crops. Our volunteers (with the help of our farming engineers) have installed drip irrigation systems to increase yields when the crops are ready for harvest!

We have joined the national initiative ‘one child, one light’ scheme. Our volunteers help build solar lights with students that can then use the lights for studying when dark. We supply these lights to communities who have limited access to electricity
