I think my participation was appreciated by the teachers and they were happy to have an international exchange about our countries and cultures..
Living with the host family, volunteering at the hospital and the tours are the most exciting part of the whole trip..
The program was a great opportunity to make a difference in the lives of these lovely children. Giving Love and attention to all of them fulfilled me and made me happy. .
My placement was an amazing experience. Better than I expected. I would definitely do it again and will recommend it to other medical students. .
The girls in my orphanage were so lovely and sweet. I will miss them a lot. It has made me want to come back and see them..
I was able to help the girls with their homework, and we shared our cultures with each other. I live by the beach and was filled with joy.
The place is nice I was surprised and glad for the hot water and the generator and I was not expecting wi-fi at the beginning..
Teaching English and giving the school world maps was wonderful.I also traveled and did the Langtang trekking. Nepal is the most beautiful country I have ever been!.
I thoroughly enjoyed my volunteer placement. It was an eye-opener as I got to witness medical procedures that I would have otherwise not have the chance to witness in my home country. .
Being able to help out at the orphanage for disabled kids, seeing and learning about diseases which we do not have in Malta and travelling around Nepal to see the beauty it offers..
I enjoyed my placement, the accommodation and meals both were good and I definitely felt that my efforts get appreciated..
I enjoyed teaching English to the kids, by singing with them and playing memory games. Meeting all the other volunteers and making friends with them..
The highlight of volunteering trip was the interaction with the hospital staff and seeing a wide range of cases and how different the hospitals are here..
The children and teachers at the school are very nice. School festivals was interesting because I could sit in front of all. Other volunteers are also very nice..
I completely enjoyed my placement, if I had the time, I would have extend for 2 more months. And I find my experience worthwhile because I can speak Nepali, I had the opportunity to translate in Nepali when the children did not understand me. .
Even though Nepal might be not very rich but people in Nepal are still very friendly and their hearts definitely are full of love. I truly believe the tomorrow of Nepal must be very bright! .
Meeting the children or making new friends are the highlight of my whole volunteering trip. .
