InterVol supports the Project Nepal volunteering group at Imperial College London. The project became an official group within Imperial College Union in September 2011 and sent out its first group of volunteers to Nepal in Summer 2012.
Project Nepal works with the Maya Academy, a small charitable organisation which aims to provide free, quality education to children in Nepal. The summer 2013 project funded and constructed three new classrooms for the Maya Academy school with 17 student volunteers travelling to rural Nepal. 2014 saw a group of 12 volunteers travel to Nepal to further support the development of the Maya Academy schools while the project also began to financially support local teachers at the school for sustainability.
Please see the Nepal – Maya Academy page for more information on the project.
