Most of the schools in rural in Nepal consist of four wooden poles supporting a thatched roof. No blackboard. No desks. Few books. Open toilets, no proper classrooms, no playgrounds, no libraries, not even drinking water.

In order to address the lack of basic educational infrastructure, Volunteer Society Nepal has been working hard to provide needy schools and health posts with volunteers who are ready to help construct basic infrastructure and implement other desperately needed improvements. Projects are usually funded by local communities and volunteer contributions. As a volunteer in the Construction Program, you will work as part of a volunteer team, usually with minimal supervision. Often you’ll also work alongside villagers, learning about traditional methods of building and working. After completion of the construction project, volunteers who wish to stay for longer periods may participate in our other volunteer programs e.g. teaching in schools, health, community education, and environmental programs, working in orphanages, or as a part of the cultural exchange program.

Volunteers will be led by skilled Nepali and will work together with local people. Individual construction programs last between one and three weeks. Volunteer Society Nepal arranges the location and logistical support, including skilled manpower, food, and accommodation, training, etc.
After completion of the construction project, volunteers who wish to stay for longer periods may participate in our other volunteer programs e.g. teaching in schools, health, community education, and environmental programs, working in orphanages, or as a part of the cultural exchange program.

Volunteer Society Nepal requests you to raise an additional minimum of EURO 250 individually to purchase construction materials and hiring local professional builders. The amount will be expended directly at the construction site.
