Are you looking for a trusted local volunteer organization with the most affordable program fees? For 150$ for first week and then 100$ for additional weeks, join our rewarding volunteering opportunities.  Choose from a wide range of volunteering and internship projects provided by Third Eye Foundation Nepal.

Third Eye Volunteer Foundation Nepal is a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization entirely dependent upon the resources of our volunteers and supporters. Our programs are free of cost and the program fee is for airport pick ups, transportation, food and accomodation, on site help etc, guide tours, orientation progras etc.

Third Eye Foundations real goal is to empower marginalized communities in Nepal through mid to long-term volunteering projects. Our approach is consistent and sustainable and aims to use our resources efficiently. At the same time, our volunteers provide their time, expertise and financial resources to fund our operations. Our Third eye team works hard to ensure that our community programs run continuously and that our volunteers provide a well-organized and guided experience that is enriching for all concerned.

Without the program fees you pay, Third Eye Foundation could not sustain the platform upon which our project works and the support that we provide to volunteers and interns are based.

Third Eye Foundation Nepal is a Nepal-based, Nepalese-run non-profit organization. We are not an agency; we place volunteers in our sustainable programs. All our paid staff are Nepalese. They are paid reasonable salaries by Nepali standards. However, this accounts for very little of our overall costs. All of your program fees go directly to either fund your time in Nepal, including transport, food, accommodation, induction, or towards funding our community programs.

Our Kathmand homestay for Third eye Volunteers is Be Here Now Guest House.
