Volunteer at The Love Company Orphanage
Submitted by Linda – University student, Germany | February 17, 2016
I was volunteering in The Love Company Orphanage for almost 4 weeks in January/February 2016, and I can say that this was without a doubt an amazing experience. When I first arrived at the orphanage, the children came running towards me, I felt welcome from the very beginning. I took the kids to school every morning at 9:30, and picked up the younger ones at 3. In the meantime you as a volunteer have the opportunity to explore Pokhara, the lake & all the tourist hotspots. After picking up the younger ones from school, I helped them with their homework. I have never seen children who are so eager to learn – so doing homework and teaching them other things about life was always a great thing to do. After that we always had some time to just play, the kids always came up with new ideas and games. At 5:30 in the evening we had Dal Bhat (Nepal’s national dish) all together. Krishna (the orphanage owner) & his wife were very kind and served me a nice breakfast every morning in their home. We always had nice conversations and one day I even got the opportunity to learn how to cook Dal Bhat with Krishna’s wife. I can highly recommend this volunteer option to anyone who is interested in the Nepali culture & working with children. I felt that my help in the orphanage was highly appreciated . I will definitely come back again.
