The Orphanage Heritage

The orphanage heritage was set up as a community service project prior to the introduction of CAS associated with the IB diploma but satisfies all the requirements of CAS. The students in groups ranging from 30 to 50, do considerable fundraising work prior to the trip then work with the children for a week, and then on returning to Hong Kong reflect on their experiences and the impact of Nepal on their awareness of life and their implicit values.
All details and hotel and transport arrangements are orchestrated by Nepal Sanctuary Treks under the leadership of Mr. Tulsi Gyawali with whom we have worked closely for over twenty years. The experience has always been highly efficient and effective and can only give Tulsi and his company our unreserved recommendation.
Interspersed with the work at the orphanage there is an opportunity to explore the culture and history of Nepal with its many world heritage sites. A typical itinerary is attached below.
