Gap-week in Kathmandu, Nepal

Combining volunteer work with group coaching we help young people find their inner strengths, dreams and vision. During this Gap-week students will teach English, work in small factories, do woodwork, learn about clay-pot making, work in a motor repair shop, do cooking in a hotel kitchen and go on short hikes at the foothills of the Himalayas – like a mini gap-year.

The group will stay in hotels and with Nepalese families to experience the culture firsthand. There will be constant supervision by the Streetschool team and we will be traveling with participants at all times. Itinerary: The bulk of our time will be spent working in the Nepalese community Bhaktapur on the outskirts of Kathmandu. However, we will do some sightseeing as well and a cultural introduction is part of your package. Group life coaching sessions will be scheduled before and during the trip. This will ensure everyone knows what to expect from the trip and identify their own development areas. This experience will also help prepare students for life after school and how to design their own gap-year.

Take part in a river-rafting trip at the end of the week

Work in a small wood-work factory, a clay-making factory and a hotel kitchen

Volunteer at local schools and coach cricket or basketball while experiencing a new culture
