Ivana's Volunteer Trip to Nepal

Hello my name is Ivana and this is my story:

In 2012 I travelled to Nepal to work with


(Nepali Charity) in Bhaktapur, Nepal. I spent a total of three months doing various activities (teaching English, teaching General Knowledge, entertaining the Montessori and helping in the kitchen). Before I left I had raised over €1000 personally which was used for school supplies.

During my time with the charity I met and became friends with Ram Kumar Rai! Ram was a teacher for the school supported be Toit. I have stayed in touch with Ram since I returned home.

In Slovakian: 

Ahojte volám sa Ivana  a toto je môj príbeh :

V roku 2012 som cestovala do Nepálu a spolupracovala som s


( Nepalska Charita) v Bhaktapur v Nepále . Strávila som celkovo tri mesiace v miestnej skole rôznymi aktivitami( výucba anglictiny , výucba všeobecnych vedomosti , hranim sa s predskolskymi detmi a pomahanim v kuchyni ) . Než som odisla vyzbierala som  € 1000 osobne , ktore boli použite pre školské potreby .

Pocas môjho casu s charitou som sa stretla a spriatelila  s Ram Kumar Rai ! Ram bol ucitelom školy podporovanou sToit . Zostali sme v kontakte do dnesnej doby.

Recently he has travelled back to his home village in rural Himalayans and set up his own charity for the local school. His incredible and inspirational story can be read here:

Ram's Story

In June this year I will be volunteering with the charity that Ram has now set up: the TAMUR Foundation! I will volunteering for 5 weeks (mid June to end of July).

In Slovakian:

Ram je povodne z malej dediny  v Himalaji a zalozil vlastnu charitu pre vystavbu a vedenie miestnej skoly. Pochadzal z chudobnej rodiny, a ako dieta tiez mal sponzora, ktory mu umoznil chodit do skoly. Jeho prianim je aby kazde dieta malo moznost chodit do skoly.

V Juni 2015 sa chystam navstivit tuto skolu na 5 tyzdnov.

Objectives are hard to define for such a vast requirement but I intend to help out wherever is needed.

After getting such a great response from personal fund raising last time, I now want to exceed what I raised last time and reach a much wider audience using this method :)

All proceeds will go directly to the

TAMUR foundation

Flights and accommodation have been personally settled already.

The money raised will be used to provide the children with materials for Education, Health and Environmental Learning! To enable a child to go to this school it costs: €8 / £6 per month. This amount is used in their study’s fee, tuition’s fee, school’s uniform, school’s materials, snacks during school periods etc..

Some of the money will also be used to aid projects, a list a current project prices is below: 

In Slovakian:

Kedze som minule mala celkom uspech vyzbieranim 1000e, rozhodla som sa touto formou opat vyzbierat peniazky a pomoct tomuto projektu.

Peniaze ktore vyzbieram pojdu na vzdelavacie pomocky, skolske uniformy, obedy a na vystavbu skoly. Mozete si pozriet tabulku s cennikom.

Vsetky peniazky pojdu priamo tejto organizacii :

Tamur foundation


Letenku a ubytovanie som si zorganizovala a zaplatila sama!
