Description

Every year hundreds of orphaned children wander the streets of Kathmandu. A majority of them become child labourers and never get time to actually enjoy their childhood. VIN aims to provide them their childhood and an education. VIN has been working in collaboration with various orphanages homes in Nepal. If you were to become a volunteer or intern you could be placed into one of the orphan- ages VIN works with, providing the children with the care and support they never received.

Volunteers Initiative Nepal (VIN) is a non-religious, non- political, non-governmental and not-for-profit volunteer and internship organization founded in 2005. We aim to empower marginalized communities by implementing integrated and holistic approaches for community development. Women and children are the core focus of the organization. Improving the life conditions of women and children is crucial to alleviating poverty in Nepal, as such VIN seeks to address community issues through four major projects: women’s empowerment, children’s development, community health and youth empowerment. Education, health, income and basic infra-structure are the four pillars of our initiatives to empower the marginalized and disadvantaged communities in Nepal. Volunteers Initiative Nepal's (VIN mission and that of the Long and Mid Term Volunteer projects is to empower marginalized communities. In so doing, VIN aims to provide people with the right tools and knowledge to help themselves. The focus is on helping women and children through special educational and community training projects which promote equality, economic well-being and basic human rights. VIN has adopted an integrated development approach by relying on both international and local volunteers.
