She has made the right choice to sign up with Volunteer Society Nepal for a period of four weeks to work as a volunteer. After the initial orientation and cultural tour, she was placed in the disabled centre in Kathmandu where she worked with disabled adults for three weeks and then she also worked with elderly care in Pokhara for one week. Overall she had a wonderful experience working and helping the people of Nepal.

Where can I do my physiotherapy volunteer in Nepal?

1. Education and Rehabilitation Center for Children

Just outside of Kathmandu there is a centre where children with different types of disabilities get help with their education and rehabilitation. Here there are several other physical physiotherapies that can work with you and guide you. There is a schedule that allows each child to spend quality time in the physical therapy/physiotherapy room as often as possible. Each child has different needs: some are learning to walk, some suffer from muscular problems, while other children need to have their joints massaged regularly to maintain their physical health. Extra assistance from interns with these tasks will allow more children to use the room and get treatment on a regular basis.

2. Hospital

We can match you with an internship in a hospital where you can observe and work with the physiotherapy therapists

3. Home for Disabled Adults and Children

In this amazing and loving home, there are 70 patients and only one physical therapist. Help is needed and you will work alongside the physiotherapy/physical therapist, learning and helping at the same time.
