Make a difference to the lives of some of Nepal's poorest children. For many children in Nepal, it is extremely difficult to obtain a good education. Not least among the problems that they face is the shortage of basic facilities, with schools lacking toilets, classrooms, playgrounds, libraries, and even clean drinking water. Imaginative Volunteers have the unique chance to join with a Nepali community to help build or renovate their local school, and experience day to day life in this amazing country.
