About Us

Nepal is one of the poorest, least-developed countries in the world with over half of its population living below the poverty line. Over 80% of the population relies on agriculture for their livelihood. The majority of the population lives in rural areas that are often very difficult to reach, resulting in a lack of basic infrastructure such as clean water, primary health services, basic food and shelter, communication, electricity service and schools. In order to address the lack of basic infrastructure, a team of development workers, including social activists and ex-overseas and national volunteers founded Volunteer Society Nepal in 2009.From the early stages of development, Volunteer Service Nepal has been mobilizing international and local volunteers in various programs, providing relevant training and working experience in marginalized communities, and contributing to overall sustainable development efforts in Nepal. Additionally, Volunteer Society Nepal has developed a school building construction program to benefit some of these communities, which are often desperately lacking facilities.

Volunteer Society Nepal is also involved in supporting some of the more unfortunate children of the country, in an effort to improve their education and development at the grass roots level, by awarding scholarships and sponsorship for primary and secondary schools and strengthening community organizational capabilities.

Volunteer Society Nepal has begun a concentrated effort to help develop the managerial and organizational capacities of local institutions, communities, and individuals, to increase the number of self-sustainable improvements through construction, health, environmental and education projects throughout economically disadvantaged areas of Nepal. Volunteer Society Nepal continues to grow, and has currently developed a comprehensive program of providing basic health services, raising awareness on environmental and sanitation issues, and providing girls' scholarships and sponsorships in some needy areas of Nepal.
