Are you interested in volunteering in a remote mountain monastery, teaching in local schools, helping in orphanages, or getting hands on experience with an internship in construction or in medical clinics in traditional Nepali communities?
At Volunteer Society Nepal we are dedicated to making the most of your time in Nepal while making a difference to the local community. To achieve this we offer a broad variety of volunteer placements around Nepal so no matter if you are a teacher, doctor, builder, or do not have any specific experience, we can find a placement that suits you and gives maximum benefit to the community you work in.
Specialist Skills: If you have a budding interest or specialist skill that is not listed above then please do not hesitate to Contact Us directly to enquire about volunteering opportunities in Nepal. In the past we have helped place marketers, business consultants, grant writers and web designers to help various causes in Nepal.
Multiple placements in one trip: At the request of volunteers we can also combine multiple placements into one trip. You may want to volunteer in a monastery and also in a health clinic, or have the chance to experience both rural and urban Nepal. This is easily arranged, but please make it clear when you Apply.
Are there also group placements?
VSN also offers group volunteering programs. If you are interested in coming to Nepal with your school, university, family or group of friends then please visit our Group Volunteering Page for more details of what we can offer.
Where are the placements?
The locations of placements range from very remote mountain villages to small jungle settlements, and from the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu to the relaxed lakeside living of Pokhara. If you are unsure what program you would like to do, but you know where you would like to be, take a look at our Locations Page for inspiration.
How do VSN choose projects/placements for their volunteer program in Nepal?
Collectively, the Volunteer Society Nepal staff have over 40 years work experience with both international and Nepali NGOs. As experts in our field we always look to serve projects with the most need for international aid, be it through manpower or financial support. When organizations approach us for support we spend up to 2 months observing them before deciding to support them or not. We do this to ensure your skills and money go into the right hands.
