The mission of our volunteer program is to offer meaningful volunteer opportunities for international volunteers and to seek sustainable solutions for education, health, conservation, and development issues through volunteering. We hope to achieve this goal by offering community orientated volunteer programs where the efforts of our volunteers go directly to the poor people and their communities.
Volunteers have the opportunity to participate in a variety of educational and community aid programs. This will give you a chance to make an important contribution to the people of Nepal and while doing so gain an in depth experience of the country and its culture, that will stay with you the rest of your life.
