The Volunteer Manager role is vital to the smooth running of any Raleigh Expedition. Our Raleigh Nepal Volunteer Managers had to get through a rigorous assessment weekend to be here. Some have quit their jobs while others have put their lives on hold - but all of them have arrived with a passion to create lasting change and a strong belief in harnessing the energy of young people to make a difference.

International friendship shows us that even though you are from completely different cultures you can still become very good friends.
