Visit Nepal and install solar panels – Swogun Nepal Voluntourism program

These are the types of programs that Travelcology will be facilitating.

Please visit and follow us on Twitter @travelcology to stay connected



Swogun’s Solar Aid volunteer program has been running successfully over the last few years. Its ultimate mission is to provide renewable energy for rural communities in Nepal.

Swogun’s Solar Aid volunteers install solar home systems in rural communities, public houses, libraries, temples, health posts etc.  After installation, training is provided to ensure that users can take proper advantage of having light after sunset. This includes the teaching of income generating skills; like weaving, carpet making, etc. This helps the villagers to become self-sufficient.

How do volunteers work with our Solar Aid Program?
On the first few days of your visit, you can explore Kathmandu Valley. You can learn various aspects of Nepalese culture – the people and their way of living. You then travel to the installation site, which are usually a day bus ride from Kathmandu and a day’s walk from the bus stop. After an intensive one day training in the village, volunteers install the system at the selected venue. Finally, our technician checks each system connection before the final installation

The Solar Aid program emphasizes cross-cultural exchange. So during the installations, you will stay with families. Accommodation is simple and shared with family members. Nepalese traditional food is taken sitting on the floor with family members. Hands are use to eat food instead of spoons. You will enjoy joining in with typical Nepalese family activity because the system is entirely different to western culture.

    I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours.

    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

    Solar power is the preferred way of producing your own energy; however, it is
    usually combined with wind turbines where possible.
    (The trick is, of course, getting people to become members.
    For this sort of solar panel, many rooftops will be big enough
    to meet all of the possible requirements for providing

    video and blueprints so you can follow the guide without much possibility of making mistakes.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
