GapYearNepal internship placements are designed to facilitate a better understanding of the situations faced by people who live in a developing country, and now – thanks to the wonders of modern technology – these internships can be completed virtually! As a part of the virtual internship, participants are paired with an organization in Nepal that matches the participant’s own goals and aspirations. Once placement has been made, the participant will receive assignments that can be completed remotely – with the guidance of local mentors, as needed. Utilizing your Nepali mentors will be instrumental in learning and gaining an understanding of Nepal customs and culture, and will help you to better support the Nepali organizations.

Modern technology has completely transformed peoples’ way of life and way of learning. Internships done remotely can provide all of the same benefits as those done more traditionally – when utilizing all of the proper, available resources. In fact, remote internships even allow for greater emphasis on certain skills that students may not think about when participating in a traditional internship; skills such as accountability, flexibility, and self-discipline. Remote internships require participants to be much more self-aware and able to...
We always encourage the Interns for the first few months to work remotely and travel to the Host country and also get the experience of being there in the organization.

During the uncertain time of 2020, I embarked on a remote internship with Himalayan Circuit. Whilst this has been a challenging year all-round, I found comfort and hope in my internship connecting with beautiful people from Nepal. At the same time, I was juggling my master’s thesis. Still, the frequent meetings and friendships I developed made the summer far more enjoyable. I worked primarily on treks surrounding sustainable development and tourism for Nepal. Although my internship was due to end in September, I made the decision to extend and continue into the winter months. The people at Himalayan Circuit are so accommodating and passionate about their organisation. It was one of the reasons I decided to extend. I have never been to Nepal, the closest I have been in India and Malaysia. Still, I have learned so much about Nepal and the beautiful people who live there. I can’t wait to be able to visit myself.
I have worked for 3 wonderful months as a volunteer for Volnepal. I was tutoring a fantastic group of children during the pandemic. At first it was not easy for me, because I was in Spain and they in Nepal had to do it online with what that means. It was the first time that I did it online and in another country, another language, another culture ... and other needs. But in the moment I met my children, I saw their faces, their desire to learn, their affection for me, their love and their nobility, my fears were removed. They helped me to adapt to their rhythm, from the love, the innocence, the respect and the joy that every week I received from them.At the end of classes, I felt that I was getting closer to them, and my week started with much more force, wanting to prepare the next class and counting the minutes to see them. Every day I remember them and everything that I have learned with them, of what without imagining, they have taught me.I am looking forward to working for Volnepal again and continuing to contribute and help Nepal in whatever way I can
MY EXPERIENCE WITH ONLINE VOLUNTEERING. For a long while, I pictured volunteering as an activity that took place in the physical presence of others. It involved being able to socialize freely with one another, hug one another and in a general sense be surrounded by people. And then the pandemic came and took away this liberty we once took so lightly. And with that liberty, it took away this picture of mine as well. At first, I really was disheartened but then I began hearing this new word: Remote. I don’t remember the day I went online and started scrolling for remote volunteering opportunities, but I remember feeling extremely ecstatic. Very eager. Slightly nervous. Yet curious. Of course, I didn’t come across anything suitable the first time I started browsing but it soon morphed into a habit. Before I properly began my day, I would search online for something that would stand out. Until finally one day something did. A tutoring role at an organization called VolNepal. I love teaching and this felt like a metaphorical knock on my door. So, I opened it. In other words, I sent a mail to the team at VolNepal. Within a couple of days, I got a response and was soon interviewed. It was a pleasant experience and it made me feel much more confident about the role I had applied for. In no time, I was scheduled to teach my first class for a group of 7 children around the ages of 9-11. Let me just say that it is extremely daunting to meet someone online, especially a kid, talk to them and have them be interested in listening to you. I remember making points for my class just so I wouldn’t be awkward or shy around them. However, the moment the class began, they all greeted me and spoke politely effectively melting away a good chunk of my reservations. Seeing their happy smile was worth it. Within three classes, I was chatting with them as if I had known them for a long time. I teach them a variety of academic subjects like properties of matter and nonacademic subjects like good behaviors. I also had the privilege of being chosen as a content writer for a travel and tour operator in Nepal by the same team at VolNepal. It has been a blessing and still continues to be. I have only been a part of this organization for 3 months, but I can safely say that it feels like it has been much longer. That is the degree of comfort. I also wish to say that this opportunity has helped me realize that the terms online or offline do not matter. What remains is the word that follows it. Volunteering.
