Change Starts Here- Our Raleigh Expedition Volunteers for This Summer

18th July 2019

Our young and energetic Expedition Volunteers will be working along with our project partner for creating that lasting change in rural communities of Gorkha. The major source of income of these communities are agriculture and daily wage labour. They will be continuing Raleigh International Nepal’s sustainable WASH (Water Sanitation and Hygiene) work in Gorkha. These dedicated young individuals will work to improve water, sanitation and hygiene. Meet our teams of inspiring volunteers and find out more about the challenges and adventures ahead of them
