volunteer in orphanages

Volunteer For Orphanage

Nepal had suffered a long age of insurgency and conflict. Many children were left homeless and lost their parents. Volunteer FDIP has attempted an initiative to support such orphaned children. Volunteer in Orphanage Project provides the volunteers a chance to make some difference to such deprived children by helping them on day-to-day work such as sanitation, learning, recreation and extracurricular activities such as drawing, painting, singing, dancing.

A volunteer's main role is to make children feel being with someone who cares about them. Volunteers are not supposed to make a dramatic change or contribution to these kids. Simply sharing your honest feeling, playing and having fun with them can also give positive impact on their daily life. Main objective of this volunteer project is to bring mental, intellectual, physical and social improvement to these kids.
