NEPAL - A new adventurE
For people looking for something a bit different, more challenging and very exciting. DUCK Nepal is a new expedition for summer 2018, and it promises to be a cracker.
Dates: August/September (4/5 weeks)
Provisional Fundraising Target: £2800
2017/18 Expedition Leader: Luke Jenkinson
Nepal 2018 will work in a school for poor children in rural Nepal. The team will immerse themselves in a range of activities - from carrying out necessary building maintenance and construction to improve the school's facilities and enable it to expand, to assisting teachers in lessons and running extra-curricular activities for the kids.. There are also so many possibilities for the team to experience the local culture, getting to know the children and their families in an environment beyond the school, joining in with local celebrations.
But it wouldn’t be a DUCK expedition if it was purely volunteering. And Nepal offers some amazing opportunities. Travel and discover a fascinating culture, a unique history and some stunning scenery. The cherry on the top? The team will round off the expedition with a final week spent trekking in the Himalayas - surely one to tick off the bucket list!

Hi my name is Luke and I am in my third year at Van Mildert and I study Geophysics. Travelling is my favourite thing to do and I spent last summer working at an American summer camp as well as travelling around Indonesia for a month. I am so excited to get to lead the DUCK summer 2018 expedition to Nepal where we will be spending time helping out with the construction and renovation of a school as well as spending time with the kids! Also we get to trek in the Himalayas!!! In my time at uni I play rugby and other sports when I can, and also love working on my college bar as well as trying to cope with five 9ams a week...
