Volunteer Travel Tour

Program Fees

At VIN we understand that you might only have a short time in Nepal.  You are keen to volunteer but you want to experience the country’s rich culture, history and geography.  If your stay here is limited to two or three weeks, the Volunteer Travel Tour project is designed for you.

From the jungle of Terai to the spectacular wildlife of Chitwan National Park and upwards to the Himalayas, Nepal is a melting pot of landscapes, biodiversity and ethnicity, with over 10 ethnic groups and more than 100 languages.  While the pervading religion here is Hinduism, Nepal is also one of the spiritual and physical homes of Buddhism. You get chance to experience all these during your volunteer travel tour.

During your volunteer/internship placement, there are many projects to become involved with.  Help to encourage learning amongst children three to five, in one of our Early Child Educationcentres or work with older children, teaching English or giving life skills training in one of our Children’s Clubs� .  You might want to work with the women of the community  or do something different altogether, retreating to a monastery to teach English to Buddhist monks .  You decide.

Then, explore Kathmandu and its sister towns, taking in temples and stupors before heading to the hillside settlement of Nagarkot to watch sunset.  Spend two nights in Chitwan National Park, where you might even see a tiger, or chose to head to the lakeside of Pokhara, famous for its adventure sports and as the gateway to the Annapurna mountain range.

VIN’s overriding objective is the empowerment of marginalised communities, with a focus on women and children.  We have been working with Jitpurphedi Village Development Committee (VDC), 12km from Kathmandu, since 2007 and are now laying foundations in the Okhaldhungadistrict in the Everest region.  Although you will only be with us for a little while, your time and placement fee will help to support our ongoing work.

Your Experience

VIN have a range of community development programs for you to become involved with, plus several outside the community. Please consider whether you would rather work with young children, school age or perhaps women?  Our programs run irrespective of volunteer availability, so it is always possible to lend extra support.

After your volunteer/internship placement your travelling experience will could involve sight-seeing, safari and hiking.  Here is a closer look:

Sightseeing of ‘sister’ cities ( Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktpur) of Kathmandu valley, with different languages and cultures, the world heritage sites, e.g. Darbar Squares, Baudhanath and Swyambhunath (monkey Temple) Stupas, Pashupatinath (the cultural and religious place for Hindus), Budhanilakantha, Patan;

Visit Nagarkot or Dhulikhel for beautiful mountain views from Sunrise to Sunset.

Return to Kathmandu stay a night and go for hiking to Jitpur village for a day.

Two nights, three days jungle Safari to Chitwan National Park.  South of Kathmandu Valley, approximately 200km away, Chitwan is famous for wildlife and jungle safari. You will have opportunity to see a variety of wildlife such as tiger, One horn Rhino, elephant, deer and many other species including a variety of birds.

Or, two nights, three days in Pokhara Valley.  Pokhara is west of Kathmandu, 200km away, famous for its lakes, mountains, falls, caves, and as the gateway to the great Annapurna treks.
