The Buddha Odyssey, in partnership with the REACH for Nepal Foundation (RFN) is pleased to announce a remarkable opportunity to be part of a community rebuilding project in a Nepalese village devastated by the earthquakes of 2015.
Travellers will provide practical, direct assistance, working with local people to repair and reconstruct a site in Western Nepal (project brief/cost will be confirmed once the tour is going ahead). The trip is organised to showcase Nepal, includes sightseeing in Kathmandu and trekking around the world famous Annapurna’s. As part of the community project there will be plenty of time to mingle with villagers/teachers/students as you work to pass on some skills, and share your experience to that of Nepalese including culture, traditions, social structure and ways of life.
The itinerary is for example only and can be modified as per the request of the travelling party.
