* Must have previously participated in an EWH program

Through January Institute Nepal, EWH Alums (from Summer Institutes and Campus to Country programs) will help repair much-needed medical equipment in Nepal as the country continues to recover from devastating earthquakes and flooding.

After a two-day orientation near Kathmandu, participants will work for 2.5 weeks in small groups (2-4) at partner hospitals in around Nepal. Participants will install and repair hospital equipment, train and work with local staff, and perform a multitude of other tasks utilizing their engineering skills and knowledge.

To experience the culture and way of life in Nepal, participants will stay with homestay families. EWH and in-country partners will handle all local transportation, most meals, and accommodation. Participants will be supported in Nepal by a local partner volunteer service in Nepal. Participants will also be provided with cell/images/rance.
