Volunteer Stories

If you would like to volunteer at QOLN in Sarangkot, please use the contact form on this website and get in touch!

We offer accommodation at the Blue Planet Lodge in Pokhara at special rates for your stay while volunteering.

In juli 2011 besloten we om samen als koppel, vrijwilligerswerk te doen voor een paar maanden ergens in de wijde wereld.

Via via kwamen we dan bij QOLN terecht en hebben we de kans gekregen om 2 maanden mee te draaien in het kleuterschooltje in Sarangkot.

Het was wel een hele belevenis voor ons, want wij hadden helemaal geen onderwijs back-ground, afgezien dan van de ervaringen met onze eigen 3 kinderen.

Uffff…How to describe this wonderful experience……..

I came to Nepal following a feeling that I had since long time ago of making a volunteer work in this country. Today, after already 4 months in this lovely country I can say 100% sure that was the best decision I could even take in my life.

After finishing a volunteer program for 4 weeks with another organization, God put on my way Sabine, Ram, and their project of Day Care Center in Sarangkot.

Finding Sabine and Ram and their NGO ‘Quality of Life’ has made our Nepal experience all the more special for us.

We are a married British couple without an ounce of experience in dealing with children and, it would be fair to say, a degree of fear at the prospect of doing so, but we were keen and ailing to give anything a go if it meant we could help out in some way. So, we headed up to the fantastic place that is Sarangkot where the Day Care Centre for children age 2-5 years is based.

When I arrived in Sarangkot one year ago I was impressed by the view.
Any nature lover should here a few times with his eyes blinking to believe that it really is .. you do not see the highest peaks of the world every day…

I was traveling alone and had injured my knee. I chose to make myself useful and Sabine agreed.  I helped out in the school for 5 days and it was an unforgettable experience!
When I first walked into the school I didn’t know what came over me.  I never dreamed that I got such a warm welcome.
