With project partners, local communities, founders, and over 42,000 previous local and international volunteers, Raleigh forms a global community who are passionate about working together to build a sustainable future.
Raleigh has been working in Nepal since January 2015 supporting local partners and communities in Gorkha and Makwanpur districts. The working sectors are Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), Livelihoods and Youth Development.
International Citizen Service (ICS) is a UK government funded volunteering programme also being implemented in Nepal. It engages Nepali and UK youths to work together in the development sector. The programme is split into 2 parts, a 12-week placement and then a personal commitment to follow up your learning with writing a report. A certificate of completion from the UK government will be provided upon the acceptance of the report. There are also other further opportunities to engage with UK government DFID youth programmes after completion of the programme.
For the first part (placement), young people from the UK will travel to Nepal and work with you as part of a team of 12 volunteers – 6 Nepali and 6 UK plus 2 Team Leaders (1 Nepali/1 UK).
Our programmes are based in Gorkha and Makawanpur. You will be living for 12weeks in a selected community in a host home with a UK volunteer partner. Your teammates will be living in the same community as well and you will have 2 Team Leaders who manage the programme.
You will be responsible for delivering awareness-raising sessions, community infrastructure, developing resources for the community, undertaking needs assessments and action research, helping our partners deliver training to the communities and promoting active global citizenship. A family in the community will host the volunteers with the volunteers expected to participate in family life.
