2015 Nepal Fall Crisis Team
The 2015 Nepal Crisis Team will differ from other HELP International programs in that projects will be focused on disaster relief, clean-up, and meeting the immediate needs of community. All applicants should be aware that projects in this country are yet to be solidified. In the next months HELP will be conducting assessments, monitoring safety concerns, and reaching out to partnerships and communities on site. Though debris removal and clean up will be a heavy component of this program, we also anticipate working in restoring and renovating schools and/or community centers, water filtration systems, and capacity building programs. If you know of a local organization we should partner with please email firstname.lastname@example.org. HELP International alumni are eligible for a $400 scholarship.
Program dates are August 16 through October 11 in 2 week increments. Program fee varies based upon time in country:
2 weeks: $1350
4 weeks: $1950
6 weeks: $2550
8 weeks: $2950
2016 HELP International Winter Uganda or Fiji Program
For the Winter Program, volunteers will be traveling to Fiji and Uganda. Volunteers can serve for one or two waves, each wave being six weeks long.

Volunteers in Uganda will be working closely with Musana (www.musanaintl.com), a partner organization located in Lugazi that employs and empowers female artisans.
