Feeling the love at The Love Company


I have now been volunteering at The Love Company for over a week and am having a really good experience. I first found the website when I was looking for orphanages in South America and for some reason The Love Company popped up – I didn’t really know much about Nepal but when I was dancing around my house feeling excited I knew I wanted to come here. I emailed Krishna and he got back to me quickly saying he would love for me to come and volunteer. The arrangements for my arrival and everything else unfolded smoothly and easily.

Even though my plane arrival time changed by three hours the day before, I was still met by Krishna’s friend at the airport and whisked off the a peaceful hotel in Kathmandu where I talked to Krishna on the hotel owner’s phone. I was very much looking forward to arriving in Pokhara and meeting him the following day. My coach was delayed by two hours but Krishna was still there waiting for me and we had a big hug which was a nice way to be greeted. I then went to my hotel and then to Krishna’s house where he explained more about what I would be doing and answered any questions. I also met his wife who provides delicious breakfast each morning.

My hotel is lovely – I have a breathtaking view from my balcony and the hotel owners treat you like one of the family. I often eat with them and on Saturday the hotel owner took me to his village in the mountains and we walked in beautiful countryside all day. It’s so nice being able to see the Himalayas everyday, I never get bored of looking at them.

The kids at the orphanage are great. You receive a really warm welcome and each newcomer gets a tour. One of the kids called Antim is the funniest child I have ever met, he is like a miniature breakdancing ninja. They are all very different and full of personality. Each day I walk them to school and collect them later on. After I help with their homework and then, if there is time, we do some activities like colouring or dancing and singing. There is lots of walking to and from the orphanage so it’s nice to get lots of exercise.

The food here is really nice – Amma cooks Dal Bhat each evening at the orphanage and the breakfast is really nice to. Pokhara itself also has lots of nice places by the lake to eat and unwind so you are spoiled for choice.

I also enjoy the fact that you learn a lot from Krishna and his wife. They are constantly giving me spiritual and health tips which I am glad about. I am also doing yoga lessons at his house every morning at 7am with Santos who also works at the orphanage. They have lots to teach – for example this morning I learned about different foods that make you emotional! Love it.
