This is your opportunity to make lasting memories and empower the children of Nepal by aiding restoration efforts on 16 schools throughout the Tanahun District alongside community members. Scroll down for details.

It was by far the most amazing trip I have ever been on. I would go back in a heartbeat. I have made lifelong friends not only with other Young Living members but in Nepal as well. I loved getting to truly help someone and the only thing I got in return was a smile and a hug!- Kellie Jo Sundberg, Oklahoma

Being immersed in their culture was so unbelievable. I had never been off the North American continent, so I was so nervous. But the Nepalese people were just so kind and so welcoming.- Lindsay Kusy, British Columbia, Canada

Nepal Service Trip November 2020 Details

What service will attendees perform?

Those selected to attend the Nepal service trip will restore and rebuild 16 schools partially damaged by the 2015 earthquakes. They will also help build and restore two women’s centers, one of which is home to a large women’s cooperative. Please note that this will be a physically strenuous service trip. We will be working construction, which includes hauling 12- to 15-pound bricks; scrubbing, grinding, and cutting the bricks; and working with cement.

What is the trip schedule?

We will have two trips to Nepal in 2020, one from April 18-30 and the second from November 1-13. This means that you will most likely depart your home country on April 18 or November 1 and then leave Nepal to return home on April 30 or November 13. Please note that dates are subject to change.

How much does a service trip cost? What does the cost cover?

A service trip costs $3,500 USD per person. This covers the cost of flights, transportation, hotel accommodations, food, and water while in Nepal. The cost of the trip is tax deductible for U.S. citizens who make contributions through the Foundation. Payments to individuals are not considered tax deductible.

Who handles flight and lodging accommodations?

Flights and lodging are arranged by the Young Living Foundation. Information will be provided to those selected to go on this trip.

What factors are considered for acceptance?

Applications are evaluated based on the applicant’s skills related to the service, as well as experience, desire, and history of supporting the Foundation. We’re primarily looking for volunteers who have construction experience or those willing to perform construction-type work for multiple days in a row.

Are there any age restrictions?

Due to the labor-intensive nature of this service trip, applicants must be 18 or older.

How many members will be selected to attend?

All applicants will be considered. The number of members selected is based on need, and there are limited spots available for each service trip.

When will I find out if I’ve been selected to go?

All applicants will be notified of acceptance, denial, or waitlist status on or by November 5, 2019. Those who have been accepted will have until December 1 to commit by making a nonrefundable deposit of $500 USD, which will go toward the overall cost of the trip.

When will other service trips be offered?

We will start accepting applications for 2021 service trip opportunities in mid-2020.
