Authentic Volunteers

Our Story

Authentic Volunteers is a humanitarian organization working together with volunteers to try to make a social impact here in Nepal. In 2012, Ram Krishna founded " Children's Home Nepal" to give a home, education, and meals to 12 vulnerable children. To offer a better education to the children and open them to the world, our organization started to accept international volunteers through different volunteer agencies. But we wanted the money, that the volunteers pay, to be used for the children's welfare, and not go to the volunteer agencies.  This is why we decided to start "Authentic Volunteers", to directly connect our passionate volunteers, their time, money, and energy to the welfare of our children.
