Help others to make a positive change

For many years, Aussie Action Abroad has offered opportunities for those in the health sector to share their skills, knowledge and commitment to healthy lifestyles with communities both within Kathmandu, as well as remote community settings.

This year we seek to build on our recent connections with a focus on extending information sharing with those agencies supporting young people with special needs.

Based in Pokhara, the team will focus on supporting Community Based Rehabilitation Service (CBRS), the Rainbow Centre (Pokhara Autism Resource Centre) and the Independent Living Centre.

 What will the venture involve? (Subject to change)
  •  Engage with staff and associates of our partners in Pokhara
  • Working alongside local staff, families, and young people
  • Living in a basic tea house in Pokhara
  • Opportunity to create and share resources aimed at assisting ‘clients’
  • If time permits – a home visit to ‘clients’ alongside Nepali staff
  • Opportunity to spend time doing a little exploration in and around Pokara.
