Mission Statement

The vision of the SADP is to contribute to improve the livelihood of Nepalese farmers of diverse agro-ecological, socio-economic and cultural setting through development and promotion of sustainable farming system.


Nepal is a country of breathtaking beauty, abundant wildlife, and fascinating traditional cultures.
We are non-governmental organization (NGO) registered with Nepal government and affiliated with Social Welfare Council of Nepal working in the field of Agriculture emphasizing on development of Sustainable Agriculture in Nepal.
Our program makes a positive difference in the lives of the deprived society by providing volunteering opportunities to international volunteers. We provide support to committed volunteers who have an understanding and respect for all races, religions and cultures and we aim to accommodate all interests, needs and budgets.
We provide Nepali culture and training for foreign volunteers who wish to render their services to Nepal in the field of organic agriculture in our demonstration organic farm "Setivalley Integrated Organic Farm (SIOF)" which is located in a beautiful place North West of Pokhara city, which is one of the main tourist destinations of the world. The volunteers can visit other farms also which are located in beautiful location. Beside this they can work in the field of Education, Health, Community Development, Orphanage, Disable, Agro -Forestry, Poverty alleviation etc.
We also make visit to surrounding villages for cultural exchange program as Nepal is widely rich in diverse culture. Nepali culture is distinctively friendly and open and volunteers are made to feel as though they are part of the family. They can enjoy traditional rural villages especially in Gurung community. Hot spring water bath will be additional attraction during their visit. During this period, volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in local festivals and get an opportunity to exchange their culture.
Volunteers also have a chance of adventure, such as white water rafting which they can perform in Seti River which is beside our farm by paying extra cost. Annapurna trekking and a visit to Royal Chitwan National Park and elephant safari are other attractions. The birth place of Lord Buddha the Lumbini also can be visited in the same time.
The volunteer program is available to individuals or to groups of up to 10 people at a time for the period of one week to three months. We would like to invite school groups, university students, adult groups and professional organizations who are interested in organic agriculture to create and run custom programs for cultural visits, service projects, volunteer works and internship works in SIOF and other farms of surrounding. Newly established Govardhan Organic Agriculture Resource Center is also another attractive venue for volunteering or to dirt their hand working in the farm.
With our extensive local network, experienced staff and comprehensive information about all aspects of Nepal, our staff is able to develop extraordinary opportunities in any corner of Nepal. Our group program is equal in quality to other international groups working in Nepal; for the cost please contact us.
Volunteers/visitors/researchers/students and other are heartily welcome to join the program with their children, partners or group of friends.
