Raleigh International - Nepal

Raleigh International are looking for career breakers to support their sustainable development projects in Nepal.

You will be working on projects that focus on providing the community with access to safe water and sanitation through Water, Sanitation and Hygiene projects (WASH), delivering awareness raising, building community resilience and communit- based Natural Resource Management.

Nepal is the second poorest country in Asia with almost 23% of the population living below the poverty line. These people are most at risk to climate change and natural hazards – Nepal is the fourth most climate vulnerable country in the world.

Benefits of this career break:

  • Develop experience in a logistical role
  • Experience international development first-hand
  • Gain experience in an expedition environment
  • Develop knowledge of international sustainable development
  • Learn new skills to develop or change your career
