why Patron Nepal?

For uplifting communities through Collaboration, Education, Health, Agriculture and Friendship.

There are many reasons why volunteering is as good, if not better, than a going on a normal holiday. Many people love to travel and only experience the tourist aspects of countries they visit which are completely different to real life there. With the continual expansion of the volunteering holidays people can now see how the real people live behind the scenes which the travel companies never show you.

 

Patron Nepal "Sharing Experience" contributes to volunteerism for development by advocating volunteerism globally, encouraging the integration of volunteerism into development programing and mobilizing volunteers together with governments and development organizations through education, health and traditional farming in Nepal.

Program Fees

Patron Nepal "Sharing Experience" is a non-profit, Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), entirely dependent upon the resources of our volunteers and supporters.

 

Patron Nepal’s principle objective is the empowerment of local communities through mid to long-term project work. Our approach is consistent and sustainable and aims to use our resources efficiently. While our volunteers help to provide time, expertise and financial resources to fund our operation, the staff of Patron Nepal "Sharing Experience" work hard to ensure that our community programs run continuously and that our volunteers are provided with a well-organized and facilitated experience, which is enriching for all concerned.

 

Without the program fees that you pay, Patron Nepal "Sharing Experience" would be unable to sustain the platform upon which both our project work and the support that we provide to volunteers and interns are based.

 

Patron Nepal "Sharing Experience" is an entirely Nepal-based organization. We are not an agency and we place volunteers in our own programs.

The majority of our staff is local. They are paid reasonable salaries by Nepali standards, however, this accounts for very little of our overall costs. Your entire program fee goes directly to either fund your time in Nepal, including transport, food, accommodation, induction, or towards funding our communities programs, along with the everyday administrative costs which are incurred.

 

At Patron Nepal "Sharing Experience", we work hard to continue to work efficiently, ensuring that our program fees remain affordable for our volunteers and interns and our community work continues to be consistent and effective.
