VSO has a proud history of working in Nepal. Currently, volunteers in Nepal are working on a number of initiatives supporting inclusive education, social inclusion and gender equality.
Volunteering in Nepal
Volunteers in Nepal are working at all levels to support thousands of vulnerable girls to make empowered decisions about their own futures. Volunteers are integral in ensuring these girls have access to a quality education and other services that will enable them to break the cycle f poverty.
Volunteers also work on a number of projects working with communities to challenge harmful traditional practices and support young women to pursue their own income-generation projects and live more independently.
We have ambitions to significantly increase the number of people we support through these programmes and are keen to recruit volunteers with:
- Professional education / education management experience
- Professionals with experience addressing gender and social inclusion issues
- Experience in business / SME
Volunteering opportunities for young people in Nepal
VSO offers opportunities for youth volunteers from the UK and Nepal, aged 18-25 to work in Nepal through the International Citizen Service programme.
Volunteers work in the capital of Kathmandu and rural communities in Baglung and Lamjung. Their projects aim to improve sustainable livelihoods opportunities for women, and address poor sexual and reproductive health faced by young people. They also support training delivery to farmers, and coordinate health education workshops with schools and community groups.
