Friends of VIN partners with the Nepal-based organization Volunteers Initiative Nepal (VIN). We offer affordable volunteering opportunities for interested organizations; groups, couples and individuals who would like to make a contribution to Nepali society, while at the same time experiencing the rich culture, the natural magnificenceand daily life of Nepal. The degree to which volunteers contribute to Nepali communities varies according to their motivation and personal capability. However, no experience is necessary and FoVIN strongly encourages all applicants.
Volunteering with VIN will give you the opportunity to live and work in Nepali communities and learn more about this beautiful culture. VIN runs volunteer programs for people of all ages and all nationalities, working in areas where volunteers can be of most lasting benefit to Nepal and develop themselves at the same time.
We don't require any specific skills but we expect you to be open-minded, patient, independent, flexible, enthusiastic about getting to know a new culture, and have a good sense of humor - these qualities will help you cope with living in a culture that may be very different from your own.
