School-building mission in Nepal
Volunteer Globally 2017

Volunteer Globally, one of the main pillars of our community outreach activities, offers members of the UAE community a rare chance to join the Dubai Cares team in a developing country to construct a school.


We are looking for volunteers of 21 years and above, who are UAE residents, enthusiastic about social work and physically capable to perform construction work and adapt to the working conditions and routine of life in the village to join us for the 2017 edition of Volunteer Globally which will take place from October 21 to 28 in Nepal.


The volunteers will join us in digging, picking, sifting, mixing concrete, making bricks, carrying water and tying rebar. Worksite activities will also be combined with cultural education workshops. Volunteers will be staying in an accommodation close to the school site and the community benefitting from the project. 


Think you have what it takes? To apply for Volunteer Globally 2017, please complete the applications form no later than Sunday, June 28, 2017 at 10:00 AM.

We will be shortlisting the applications to 50 based on the answers you provide to the last question while prioritizing volunteers who sign up first. The 50 shortlisted volunteers will be invited for one-on-one interviews between July 17 and 24, following which we will select the 15 volunteers to travel to Nepal. An additional 15 volunteers will be placed on a waiting list.


The volunteers will receive a comprehensive briefing ahead of the trip, which will cover the ground situation in Nepal, socio-economic background as well as an overview of the activities that will be undertaken as part of the school construction.


Dubai Cares will finance the trip and this includes cost for visa, travel, accommodation, food and beverage, travel supplies and safety equipment. We expect the volunteers to cover the cost of vaccination, malaria tablets and medical checkups which are mandatory and vary from country to country.


Upon return to Dubai, all volunteers will receive a Certificate of Appreciation from Dubai Cares.
