You’ll get the opportunity to teach and mentor the Ama Ghar children, meet local people, and experience Nepal from a unique perspective.We are looking for energetic and inspired individuals and groups who want to share their culture and their skills with the children. Whether you teach music, karate, or algebra; go on walks or play volleyball and scrabble; the children and staff at Ama Ghar gain valuable experience from each visitor’s presence. You are welcome to stay in our guest apartment; you will be expected to cover the cost of your stay (currently $20.00 US per day) and are also encouraged to sustain our program with a donation.
