Home Stay / Cultural Exchange

Experience Nepal Up Close: Home Stay and Cultural Exchange Program

Explore the heart of Nepal through our Home Stay and Cultural Exchange Program. In this unique opportunity, participants will be welcomed into the homes of Nepali families in both touristy and remote areas, immersing themselves in the rich tapestry of Nepali culture, lifestyle, language, food, and people.

This program is a two-way cultural exchange. While volunteers gain valuable insights into Nepali life, they are encouraged to share their own home culture and customs with the host family. It’s a dynamic and enriching experience for both sides.

Unlike other volunteer programs, participants in the Home Stay and Cultural Exchange Program do not undergo formal training with other volunteers in Nepal. Instead, they spend their time with a Nepali family, attending 2 hours of language lessons in the morning and afternoon. This not only helps them communicate but also fosters a deeper connection with their host family.

Additionally, participants have the opportunity to explore various points of interest, such as jungle safaris and trekking, making their stay in Nepal even more memorable. Join us for this unique and immersive cultural exchange, and discover the authentic essence of Nepal with a local perspective.
