EHN Nepal (Education & Health Nepal) is a Non-profit organization based in Nepal & UK that provides genuine low cost quality volunteer experience for people interested in seeing the real Nepal hidden behind the tourist areas. Founded in 2014 by Wayne Guttridge & Phil Palmer we have spent the last 5 years working in the two fields that make up our organization's name.
Our aim is to create a volunteering organization run by volunteers that develop projects that help without creating a reliance on charitable donations. By using what Nepal has to offer the world (The Himalayas and tourism) we hope to give people the chance of bettering their lives. Working with local schools to teach English, support long term projects by helping orphanages create a safe environment for the children and improve the medical care in the rural farming communities.
But EHN isn’t just an organization but has become a family of people who are interested in making a difference to other people’s lives. And our belief is that volunteering should be fun as well as helping the local community so we work hard to provide an experience you never forget. By harnessing the power of international volunteering we target our support for the poorest communities in Nepal where we aim to develop projects that bring lasting change. Because we ask that our volunteers to become part of our organization to help bring about these changes through providing ideas and feedback because we are the channel that you volunteer with but without you we could not complete our work.
