FoVIN partners with the Nepal-based organization Volunteers Initiative Nepal (VIN). 

The mission and objective of the VIN Volunteer Program is to encourage and invite international/national volunteers to contribute to the development of the poorest families and communities the victims of conflict. Together with VIN, we aim to enhance voluntary, global brotherhood among people.

Volunteers will experience life in Nepal firsthand, working alongside Nepali people to help support communities in rural Nepal. In this way, they will be making a meaningful contribution to a disadvantaged segment of the world community, while participating in an exchange of ideas and viewpoints with the locals who will ultimately be responsible for sustainable development.

It is our aim to help students of the International school of Düsseldorf to become responsible  world citizens and leaders in tomorrow’s world. 

They  need skills which will help them to lead a full and happy life in a rapidly changing world. As a requirement for graduation, students in the International Baccalaureate program need to participate in CAS (Creativity, Action, Service), an extended service project that involves

planning, team work and reflection. Virginia Reiss, CAS coordinator at ISD says :

"Ann and Friends of VIN have been an energizing breath of fresh air. As the young head of an NGO, Ann is a role model for many students who really want to make a significant difference in the world"
