“In my village we share a tap between our nine houses. In the spring we have very little in the way of water supply, just a few drops to share, we have to queue with our buckets to get water and it means we can’t do our other jobs. We would be so much happier if we had a good water supply all year round.” - Community member in Mathilo Raniswara, Gorkha
Our new International Citizen Service (ICS) Team Leaders are all prepared to start the new journey on the way to change. They are preparing for their training at Pasa Yard in Kathmandu and will continue their training in the rural community for few days before they go to their placements.

Namaste (नमस्ते)! This International Youth Day we consider the importance of young people in driving sustainable change, share their vision of a better future and reflect on the skills they will need to accelerate progress towards the Global Goals.
Young people are at the heart of Raleigh International’s development methodology, which embraces the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) three-lens approach to youth participation in sustainable development. This approach sees young people as positive agents of change, best equipped to eliminate extreme poverty by 2030 and lead the world in leaving no one behind.
Namaste (नमस्ते)! Our five-week volunteers have returned safely from their Youth Leadership trek in the Ghorka region of Nepal. Each group had an amazing nine days working together as a team to overcome the challenges of the weather and terrain, and all were in high spirits when we met them at their debriefing. When asked to sum up their experience in one or two words, the overriding sentiment was one of extraordinary friendship, remarkable team morale and breathtaking views.July 22, 2018
