Traffic Management

Program Fees Traffic Management

Congestion and poor traffic management are arguably the most visible and audible problems to afflict Kathmandu.  VIN are looking for volunteers to help perform a valuable and socially important task, assisting Nepal’s Traffic Police in traffic management and provide road user education.

As people from rural districts of Nepal continue to make their way towards the capital the volume of traffic in Kathmandu Valley also increases.  Volume now far outstrips the capacity of the road network.  And there is little hope for the future; road development being limited due to poor planning and leadership.

As volume of traffic increases, so do the number of deaths on the roads.  In 2012 the number of serious accidents was estimated at 130, per day, along with thousands of minor ones.

VIN are looking for committed volunteers to work in traffic management with traffic police to minimize traffic related problem.  You will have the opportunity to assist the Kathmandu Traffic Police in management of the road networks and you will help to provide education to road users.  You will also be able to conduct surveys to inform future management and assist with campaigns, such as the ‘No Horn’ campaign.

VIN is a non-commercial, charitable organisation whose overriding mission is the empowerment of marginalised, rural communities in Nepal, with a particular focus on women and children.  Since 2007 we have worked with Jitpurphedi community, 12km from Kathmandu, and now look forward to initiating our work in Okhaldhunga, in the Everest Region.  By taking part in in this program you will be supporting our efforts in these communities, helping to promote our relationships with partner organisations and raising our visibility.

During your placement you will live in Kathmandu with a Nepali host family, where you will be able to become immersed in the Nepali culture and language, away from the busy roads.

Your Experience

You will be provided with a special induction and training due to the nature of this placement.

Throughout your placement you will have the full support of VIN.  Your safety is our highest priority.  On arrival you will be greeted at Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport and transported to your hotel (alternative arrangements can be made for those already in Nepal prior to the start of their placement).  You will then receive a comprehensive three-day induction, during which time you will be provided with information about your particular placement as well as general information, including basic Nepalese language and culture.  This is also a good time to mix with other volunteers or interns who may be great sight-seeing companions and a source of support during your volunteer placement.

During the induction you will be accommodated in a hotel.  However, a large part of the VIN experience comes from the immersion of a home stay with a Nepalese host family.  While this is an essential part of the experience we also recognise that it can be a challenging one, becoming part of a new culture and becoming accustomed to facilities that will be more basic than those you are used to.  However, all our host families are experienced in accommodating volunteers – although their ability to speak English will vary – and you will have 24 hour access to contact and support from our staff members during your placement.
