Work: As one of the world s poorest countries, Nepal faces many challenges to public health. In the rural communities, the government offers few facilities to support the health of its people. Illiterate, many people do not have the means to change their health, sanitation and hygiene practices and remain unaware of the major health risks and how to minimize them. Nepal also lacks efficient mental health services with limited diagnostic, treatment and availability of human resources to address mental health issues. This project will help promote healthy lifestyle in terms of physical and mental being. Daily Activities-Facilitate workshops on healthy living, such as foods, diet and nutrition.-Reach out to different groups of children and women to facilitate dance sessions or meditation classes.

Accomodation and food: Volunteers stay with the host family/hostel identified by VIN. The living conditions at the host family/ hostel are simple and basic. Male and female volunteers will share the same living area but have separate sleeping rooms. The volunteers sleep on simple beds/mattresses.
