Our Impact

By booking your trip with us, not only did you book with the most trustworthy travel company, but you also helped empower underprivileged women, educate deprived children, and care for neglected disabled children in Nepal.

Real Travel is a sister company of Volunteer Society Nepal, established in 2004, a non-governmental and non-profit, non-religious organization. Together with Volunteer Society Nepal, we use local and international resources to safeguard the health and well-being of Nepali Children and women and to offer them the education, shelter, food and vocational tools to enable them to fully and equally contribute to Nepali society and compete in the global arena. We value the need for all women and children to be given equal opportunities in life regardless of their circumstances. It is our expectation that our practice and work reflect our beliefs and value and we strive to provide the best services possible to those we serve.


We established a charitable school called Career Building International Academy (CBIA) in Pepsi-Cola Town Planning, Kathmandu. CBIA’s creation was driven by a commitment to improve the development of the community and offer brighter future opportunities for children by providing high quality accessible education. The school now educates over 1000 pupils from 4- 16 years old. The school provides an opportunity for children from all social and economic backgrounds to receive a high quality education and supports 120 orphans and disadvantaged children on full scholarships.


In Nepal, a significant proportion of children with disabilities and special needs, including blindness, deafness, hearing impairment, speech impairment, and intellectual disabilities, are not attending school, with 30.6% currently out of school. Census data indicates that men have a higher rate of disability (4.6%) than women (3%), which may reflect gender discrimination that reduces the survival chances of girls and women with disabilities, and limited identification of those disabilities among these groups. Women with disabilities are also more likely to be deprived of education than men. Additionally, Nepal’s poor social security system means that people with disabilities receive limited social protection, and even the services that are available are often only accessible in urban areas, leaving rural populations with little or no support in dealing with special needs, treatment, and rehabilitation. Rural women, in particular, bear a greater burden of caregiving for family members with special needs.

Our center for children with intellectual disabilities has 25 children that are looked after. The parents of these children do not have enough money to support their children and instead of keeping them locked up, they can now bring them to the center. Our center is looking for small donations for some materials and for organizing some social events with the kids. We are also looking for bigger donations for buying a special Mini-van in the future.

Women have a difficult position in Nepal. They have less access to education and, in addition to caring for their children, often have to do a lot of work. In order to empower these women, the provision of education for these disadvantaged women is very important. We want to teach them more independence through education, support and training. Therefore, in 2017, thanks to a large donation, we have been able to build and open a center for women who are not yet able to read, write or calculate well. We also teach in English. Most women are over 30 years old. Some are going to school for the first time!
