Recruiting Organization: Volunteer Service Nepal

Volunteer in construction to overcome the desperate lack of infrastructure in Nepali schools and villages

Help the people of Nepal through construction and manual work. Most of the schools in rural Nepal consist of simple stone structures with no water or electricity. They have no bright classrooms, toilets or playgrounds, and no libraries. Most do not even have drinking water. Volunteer Society Nepal (VSN) places international volunteers for construction and manual work in the areas most in need.

What does a volunteer do?

VSN asks you to paint, construct or repair necessary buildings. These projects are usually funded by your own contributions. They may include painting, building or repairs on bathrooms, toilets, classrooms, gardens and health clinics, depending on the funding that is given. We need help in plumbing, painting and decorating, providing drinking water, gardening or creating playgrounds and sports fields. Volunteers will work alongside experts from the local community. Individual construction programs will often involve smaller construction projects such as painting, gardening or decorating.

Volunteer as a Group or Individual?

As a volunteer in the construction program, you often work as part of a volunteer team. Therefore this placement is perfect for a group that wants to work together. We also offer smaller projects to individual volunteers. For more information about volunteering in a group go to our Group Volunteering Page.

Do I need any qualifications or skills to do this work?

You do not need any specific skills for this placement but must be willing to muck in and get a bit dirty! You will mainly be doing work such as digging, mixing sand and cement, carrying rocks, sand and bricks, fetching water and painting. However, if you do have experience we will appreciate it and put your skills to good use. If you want to join in for a bigger construction project you might want to do some fundraising at home to provide the necessary materials and building tools.
