Program Fees Teaching Arts and Crafts

Feeling Creative? Love Children and youth? Want to help make the world a better place?

Welcome to Volunteers Initiative Nepal (VIN)! Here at VIN we welcome you, your passion, your time and your talents. We too want to improve the quality of creative education for children in Nepal. If you have the desire to do volunteer teaching in Nepal, love the idea of a challenge, are super creative yourself and love children – then you’ve come to the right place! Come and volunteer in arts and crafts in Nepal! We’d love to have you here working with us.

At VIN we are passionate about the rights and education for children and youth. Young people in Nepal, especially in rural areas are incredibly disadvantaged. One of the greatest concerns by the UN in regards to developing countries such as Nepal is the “quality of education, its relevance to employment and its usefulness in assisting young people in the transition to full adulthood, active citizenship and productive and gainful employment” (from The United Nations on resources for Speakers on Global Issues). Although this is a global issue it is especially prevalent in Nepal, which is sadly still one of the least developed countries in our beautiful world.

What can I do?

You can come to Nepal! You can join the classrooms and teach the children and the young teenagers! Teach them something cool, something fun, and something creative. Teach them whatever it is that you know and you do best! Photography, writing, drawing, theatre, poetry, dance, art, crafts, and music: any subject that you chose to teach is yours to share with these beautiful children. Most importantly, having fun, being encouraging, and telling each and every child the reason that they are magnificent and worthwhile is something you can do on a daily basis. It is so special and you will never regret your decision to come here.
