Leading adventure travel company based in kathmandu, Gokyo Treks & Expeditions, has launched a new website dedicated to its not-for-profit, volunteering tourism division, Community school projects in Nepal. The Community school Project and Travel website has been built as a satellite website to the company’s main website and allows users easy access to the complete range of voluntourism itineraries which currently include community development school projects (Education and Health care) in Nepal.
Although the fast growing ‘voluntourism’ sector has been the focus of some scepticism over recent years, Gokyo Treks & Expeditions is proud to say that the voluntourism offerings represented under its Community school Project Travel program are well planned, considered and sustainable.
“Our method for accessing sustainable and meaningful projects is based on decades of experience, well-established and trusted partnerships with our local operators as well as a tried and tested formula of what makes for a successful project – both for the traveller and the host community” says Responsible Travel Manager, Ram Thapaliya. “We are very careful to ensure that our project work provides solutions to real problems that are identified by the host community, that it empowers and involves the host community, that it provides a transference of skills across both parties and that it reflects our Responsible Travel policies.”
Since the program commenced in 2011, we have completed 4 community development school projects which are located in teh remote area of Nuwakot district of Nepal. This result was made possible by the combined effort of more than 50 travellers from across the globe, who dedicated 3 or 4 days of their adventure holiday to complete a project with us.
Visit Community Project Travel to discover our range of up-coming projects, to watch footage from previous projects completed and to learn how we can tailor make itineraries to include community project work for private groups.
