Everest Foundation Nepal offers a family volunteering program. This program is a great way for families to get closer. This is the best way to combine all the efforts on a community development project and explore a new country, a new culture, and a new place.
Our trip is secure and safe to include your teenage child and provides to all ages and tastes. Today children have developed a new perspective all together. They don’t find normal vacations revolving in hotel stays and visit to tourist places all that exciting. In fact they are always on hunt to do something new and different from the others. So the best option is to make your family participate in family volunteer vacations. Your children also get to learn the importance of community, compassion, consideration for others practically, which is very difficult to make them learn else. Although you can indulge yourself in offering voluntary services locally with helping the less fortunate people, voluntary overseas gives you the golden opportunity to dive deep into foreign culture, enrich your family, strengthen your bonds and create memories that will last a lifetime.
We shall advice you to write out plans together as it helps a lot. As you research and discuss volunteer projects and programs you get to know preferences of your children and pull their interest in their preferred areas like animal conservation, indigenous cultures, or community development.
