More About VIN & Nepal

VIN’s Environment  and Conservation Programs focus on promoting community awareness of crucial environmental issues and developing solutions by contributing to major research.  We believe that the well-being of the people can only ever reflect the well-being of the environment.  VIN are looking for skilled and unskilled volunteers and interns to join us on environmental volunteering program to bring about environmental change in Nepal.

VIN conducts VIN conducts Water Research, Environment Initiative, Climate Change Research, Agrofarm and AgroForestry projects under Environment and Conservation programs to provide in depth concept of environmental issue of Nepal and to develop analytical skills, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills of its volunteers and interns.

Nepal possess a phenomenal landscape, from the flatlands to the tallest mountains in the world.  With the geography and the climate for significant biodiversity and potential for hydro-power, the country is rich in natural resources.  However, while Nepal is largely dependent upon traditional and labor intensive agricultural practices, soil remains subject to erosion, forests are destroyed and landslides pervade.  The current yield from traditional agricultural practices is not enough to feed the growing population and while floods destroy villages and lives, the population compete for precious water resources.  Poor sanitation continues and each year thousands of children die from diarrhea related conditions.  Without intervention and positive leadership, Nepal’s people remain ignorant of environmental issues. Nepalese government don’t have enough budget to spend on environmental issues so it needs help of environmental volunteering programs of INGO/NGO.

VIN’s overriding objective is the empowerment of marginalized communities.  Since 2007 we have been implementing our integrated development plan with Jitpurphedi Village Development Committee (VDC) and have begun implementation in Okhaldhunga in the Everest region.  Much of our work takes place at community level, however, VIN also performs research with partner organizations to understand national environmental issues and develop solutions.  While climate change, diminished water sources, deforestation and soil erosion continue our goals of empowerment will always be threatened.

VIN invites committed volunteers or interns to work on voluntary conservation work with us and our partners to conserve environmental beauty.  Help to educate and assist local communities, liaise with local authorities or investigate climate change.
