Community Service

etr’s Nepal service programs are varied, challenging and most of all, engaging. Since 1993, visiting students from all over the globe have provided energy and enthusiasm to build classrooms, plant trees, refurbish hospices and residences for youngsters and tutor young students in rural schools. However, no matter the project you choose, each etr Nepal program insures your visiting students develop an understanding of the history, culture and prospects of the country. And, as each etr itinerary is custom-designed, we are confident we can design a program which is just the right fit for your group.

Honestly, the trip exceeded my expectations, and I am planning on recommending that trips with etr become yearly occurrences for our group and others.
To give an idea, one currently popular program is a six night Kathmandu base program which provides three or four days of service at one of the Kathmandu region’s more financially challenged boarding schools. The physical work will consist of building, paving, cleaning, painting and other general refurbishment work, while the interaction comes in the form of class teaching of English, math or science, sharing story-telling or teaching a game new to the local students. Once the projects are completed, your students will explore the capital and venture to highlights such as Patan Durbar Square, the hill top Swayambhunath temple and the dominating Buddhist stupa of Boudhanath in Little Tibet or possibly the nearby Bhaktapur. Our groups engage with local experts on social issues such as health, poverty, human trafficking as well as the positive effects of social entrepreneurship. Your time in Kathmandu can end with either a nearby day long trek along the hills of the Kathmandu valley, or, time permitting, a two day, one night trek which allow for sunrise vista of the Himalaya.

The trip was wonderful, and both Kent and Vishnu were incredible guides.
