Public Interest Program

Fact-Sheet

VIN seeks committed volunteers or interns to join our diverse Public Interest Program.  Whether your talents are in manual labour, planning, motivating or research, you can help VIN to make significant changes in Nepal’s challenging public landscape.

VIN operates Traffic Management, Research Initiative, Construction and Manual Work, Emergency Relief & Disaster Management, Civil Society Initiative, Volunteering and Hospitality Management, and Animal Care projects under Public Interest Program to bring public awareness in Nepalese society from voluntary works.

Nepal has been a Federal Democratic Republic since 2008, having emerged from 10 years of civil war and abolished its monarchy.  Yet, four coalition governments have consistently failed to write a meaningful constitution and much of the country remains in a state of flux.  The issues of health, welfare, lack of infrastructure and susceptibility to natural disaster still overshadow the country, demonstrating the overwhelming distance that developing Nepal has yet to travel.

VIN’s overriding objective is the empowerment of marginalised communities, with the focus on women and children development.  Within our integrated community development approach, we work on four main areas; education, health, the provision of tools for economic well-being and the provision of a basic infrastructure.  We have been piloting this approach with Jitpurphedi Village Development Committee (VDC) since 2007 and now look forward to working with Okhaldhunga district, in the Everest region.  Our aim is to bring about a sustainable increase in the quality of life of those living in marginalised communities, ultimately leading to independence.

VIN seeks willing and positive volunteers or interns to assist with a wide range of Public Interest Program, operating in and outside of our focused communities.  Help the Kathmandu Police in traffic management, work with local people to build vital village structures, such as schools and toilets, or pass on your skills and help develop a culture of caring for the elderly in Nepal.
