Volunteer Programs

berg_nepalFrom approximately July 2014, the 2014 harvest season, the farmers of the Jiri Tea Cooperative expect to begin providing volunteer programs. Apprentices’ main task would be to assist with harvesting and treating the tea or with other agricultural tasks. Simple accommodation and food will be provided with the farmers in exchange for a small levy (currently being negotiated with cooperative members), which would be paid directly to the farmers.

The journey from Kathmandu takes around 8 hours by bus or jeep/private vehicle and can be organised privately or via www.firante.com, a travel agent with which we have links, based in Kathmandu and specializing in trekking.
