Put your skills and heart to work in Nepal by taking part in a one-week dental clinic in the Kathmandu Valley. The clinic will be set up in Kathmandu at Shree Mangal Dvip Boarding School, founded to meet the needs of children from the remote Himalayas, where there are no schools. We will provide dental care to children from several schools and orphanages in the Kathmandu Valley who would otherwise not have the opportunity or resources to receive dental care. The total program will last 16 days, which includes: travel time to Nepal, sightseeing in Kathmandu, six days working in the dental clinic, and sightseeing/jungle safari in the Chitwan Jungle at the end of the clinic.
