Volunteer in Nepal

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 1 person is interested

Come and join us to experience the real-life in Nepal while making a meaningful contribution to disadvantaged local communities. Volunteering with us in Nepal can be considered a mutual developing experience. Disadvantaged Nepalese people benefit from your help by means of care-giving, knowledge, and love sharing. Simultaneously you will develop yourself as a person by means of experiencing the Nepali culture, ethnicity, and pureness. At last, many local Nepali benefit from our projects indirectly. We established a school that offers employment opportunities to over a hundred people. Come and join us in developing Nepal and yourself.

Voluntary work in Nepal can be an extremely rewarding and life-changing experience. Upon arrival, and throughout their stay, volunteers will receive a warm welcome from the Nepali people, who are famous for their honesty and hospitality.

Volunteers will live and work in one of the world’s most diverse countries, with geography that ranges from the peak of the Himalaya to the tropical heat of the flat Terai from the chaos of Kathmandu to the tranquility of rural villages. Volunteer Society Nepal is an established leading volunteer organization with professional and committed staff. VSN makes sure all our volunteers are well prepared before beginning work as a volunteer by providing orientations, training in Nepali language, culture, and work practices. VSN does everything possible to look after our volunteers’ safety and make sure they will have a meaningful and pleasant stay. VSN volunteer program is not merely a volunteer placement; we customize the programs to match the need, tastes, and interests of our volunteers.

Volunteer Society Nepal, in conjunction with many local Nepali people, has created an environment from which volunteers will benefit strongly by:

  • Making a great contribution to the ongoing development process of Nepal
  • Developing work experience in a marginal society and third world country
  • Developing their personal and life skills
  • Developing a strong understanding of the Nepali people, their language, and their various cultures
  • Enjoying such opportunities as taking part in local festivals, weddings, farming, and visiting different areas in local villages
  • Enjoying the spectacular natural beauty and landscapes of Nepal

Program Aim

The Volunteer Society Nepal Volunteer Program aims to assist the sustainable development of under-developed Nepali communities, through projects aimed at children, youth, and women. Programs are coordinated through rural government schools and community-based programs, with community-based programs often initiated with the help of VSN, volunteers, and local community members.
The Volunteer Program achieves its aim by initiating and/or assisting with sustainable community-based project development, concentrating on raising local awareness of fundamental social issues, including education, health, and sanitation and conservation.
The process of community development is slow in Nepal, despite the efforts of the government and rural NGOs. This fact makes the need for motivated volunteers even greater. Few villages in Nepal have basic sanitation facilities, resulting in widespread basic health problems, such as malnutrition and the spread of water-borne diseases. Thus, volunteers play a key role in increasing the ability of communities to address these issues.
Volunteers participate in creating sustainable community groups, such as youth groups, student groups, and women’s groups, and will work very closely with partner NGOs, who are already working in the field on specific issues, utilizing their expertise and experience.
Volunteering abroad is also an excellent opportunity for personal and professional growth and development, and can provide a sense of individual freedom. Volunteering in Nepal, especially in rural Nepal, can be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Volunteering in Nepal is fun, personally challenging, and adventurous, but throughout your placement, you will enjoy the support of our highly experienced staff at VSN, who are dedicated to ensuring the well-being of all volunteers.

You can help us in developing Nepal in different ways. Every person differs from each other. Using our project pages you can determine where you can add the most value based on your skills and preferences. It’s even possible to work at several different projects during your stay in Nepal. Below you can find an overview of all our projects.
