I volunteer twice at Human welfare committee. first in 2017 and second in 2018. Each time five months and still it was not enough because here people are so nice that soon you will be part of the family. I learned here so many things from children , Tenzing and his team about life including love, service, struggle and many more. what Tenzing and his team are doing is incredible. I wish Tenzing and his team success. in every step of life.

My experience in HWC has been satisfactory. At the beginning I was a little lost because it was the first time I travelled alone, and in a completely different country. I needed some days to adapt myself to all the new things. Fastly, I felt very comfortable in the school. The people are very friendly and active so it was easy to have a good relationship with the people. The kids from the first day were very friendly. I could enjoy my volunteer experience in few days. At the same time I was enjoying and doing many things, learning a lot from the children and also the other volunteers. In all that time I felt I was learning. They give me many things, I grew up very much during these times. I recommend it very much. Volunteer opportunities in Nepal with HWC was one of the best thing I have ever done.

"Volunteering at HWC in Nepal has been the best thing I did in ages! The time there impressed, touched and inspired me deeply. In spite the way of life, the culture and many other things are very different from the ones in my country, I almost immediately felt very welcome, comfortable and sort of at home. The whole time I felt very, very happy and just in the right place. I got so much back from children and the mothers at the school, all the people I met in this beautiful country. The kids are incredible, out of almost nothing they are doing almost everything. It impressed me deeply how mature and independent they are, even the youngest one. Compared to them, the peers in my country are real babies. Their stories are often very sad, but they beam at you, laugh very often, have no fear of contact and their hearts are wide open. But also the women impressed me. Even though their lives are definitely no picnic, they don’t surrender. I admired their courage and their ability to be happy about small things. And then Tenzing: he shows an incredible engagement for the whole project and seems to work for it all day and night. For the children he is like a father in the best and truest sense of the word. And for a volunteer he is the best host you can imagine. He showed us so many wonderful places and was always ready to answer also the silliest questions. With him, you are feeling at ease, safe and very welcome. Thank you so much for everything, Tenzing! I can only highly recommend this place to everybody, no matter of which age. Go there and you will definitely not regret it, you will never forget it and you will come back changed in some ways!"
