Since 2005, VIN has been working to improve the socio-economic conditions of Nepal’s marginalized groups, especially women and children. The Organisation mobilizes skilled local and international volunteers in various development sectors, including educational programmes, trainings and counselling activities that significantly contribute to enhance the quality of life of Nepali disadvantaged people. One of the main goals of the Organisation is to promote equality, economic well-being and basic human rights through structured holistic development projects which encourage the advancement of the local communities.

Building the programmes on these key pillars will ensure an integrated and sustainable impact on local people and will give the greatest chance of independence for Nepali working communities. VIN offers international volunteer programmes in various fields like women and youth empowerment, children’s development, teaching, environment & conservation, public health, reconstruction & sustainability, management & administration, journalism and public interest.
