Description

VIN’s Volunteer Agro Farm program aims to integrate the old with the new. It looks to teach local farmers new farming techniques while still trying to retain their cultural heritage that is embodied by their way of farming that goes back to the time of their ancestors.

You as a volunteer will be placed with a local Nepali family and your main role will be to assist in the field, learn new ways of farming, and possibly even impart some of your own knowledge of agriculture to the locals. As agriculture is one of the largest sources of income for Nepal, it is a big part of who the people are. This program, by placing you in a Nepali household, and making you a tool in their engine of livelihood, truly does guarantee a proper immersion into Nepali culture and lifestyle.
