“Enriching Internship from a Journalist student”

Written on: 17/04/2020 by HelenkaCupak (1 review written)

I am Bachelor student in Journalism from Belgium. I did a 5 week long internship in the Women Empowerment and Film and Documentary making project. I loved every moment of it! I have the feeling that I not only experienced a professional but also a personal grow. I was able to practice my journalistic skills but also my human skills were tested. Everyday I engaged with new women by listening to their stories and taking pictures of them and their products. The project I worked on gives women… Read Full Review

“Great international volunteer experience”

Written on: 11/04/2020 by cassiedong (1 review written)

I did a 2-week work camp with VIN. It was a great learning experience. VIN staff are very friendly and helpful. VIN has plenty of projects to choose from. I got to meet many volunteers from all around the world. There is not really something I didn't like about my experience, although I would make a recommendation that VIN should provide a more detailed work schedule for volunteers before their arrival in Nepal. Some volunteers may want to come explore Nepal prior to the project start date… Read Full Review

“Best Volunteering Experience Ever”

Written on: 04/11/2018 by lgGalbraith102 (1 review written)

I worked with VIN on a 4 week teacher training volunteer programme in summer 2018 in conjunction with Limited Resource Teacher Training (LRTT). They were incredibly hospitable and, perhaps more importantly, incredibly well organised. They went out of there way to ensure that every volunteer remained safe and healthy (they benefit from having a practising doctor working within the organisation). The accommodation is clean however it is quite cramped and there is not much storage space. Be… Read Full Review

“Perfect Volunteering Experience”

Written on: 24/04/2018 by KonchokRinchen (1 review written)

I did a program teaching English at a monastery over 4 months, it was the most enriching experience of my life. VIN made sure it all ran smoothly. I short, it was comfortable and easy with them. I recommend them to all who would like to volunteer, whether for the first-timers or veterans. The friendly and open staff offered a brief but relevant Induction course and visited the project site frequently. I was happy to support them with the modest fee, since VIN is growing, their leader is very… Read Full Review

“Volunteer Opportunities for Professors”

Written on: 31/10/2017 by Lachris (1 review written)

I am a professor of early childhood education. VIN used my skill set to conduct teacher trying for 16 teachers from 8 rural schools. It was a wonderful experience that I would recommend to professors in any field. The typical VIN volunteer is a 20 or 30 something and that is great. However, VIN could benefit from people with a depth of experience in their field of expertise to build on their mission. Vin will set the stage for you and then you can make this opportunity what you would like… Read Full Review

“VIN changes lives”

Written on: 16/07/2016 by Malloyxg409 (1 review written)

Before coming to Nepal I was very concerned about where my money was going and also whether or not I was actually making any sort of difference by volunteering with VIN, but I can honestly say that throughout the time that I spent with VIN, I saw the community change little by little through empowerment and greater opportunity. I was placed in a beautiful project with beautiful people who I taught me more than I could have ever imagines. VIN encourages and provides opportunities for volunteers… Read Full Review

“My cheerful Nepali monks!”

Written on: 18/02/2016 by Serenablanca (1 review written)

I taught English 4 hours a day to children in a Tibetan Buddhist Monastery in the outskirts of Kathmandu. It was a lovely experience, where I learnt a lot about Buddhism, spirituality, Nepali culture, children and last but least myself! I loved watching the kids falling asleep during the morning prayer, I loved playing with them with a roll of rubber band they called ball and I loved that they touched my hair and asked what it was! Thanks to VIN's staff and their support before and during my… Read Full Review

“Completely Satisfied!”

Written on: 05/12/2015 by travelgirl4771 (1 review written)

As a former U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer (Namibia '14-'15), I really can’t say enough good things about VIN and my experience in Nepal. I think what set Volunteers Initiative Nepal (VIN) apart from my prior international volunteer experiences is that they are a local organization with staff members who are also locals. As such, they have a unique perspective and insight as to what and where the genuine needs are. This knowledge is critical in determining the success of an… Read Full Review

“Amazing experience ”

Written on: 15/07/2014 by 450Greenwood (1 review written)

My experience working with VIN was great. I chose to volunteer with VIN because I was able to find good reviews, and it seemed like the most reliable organization. I am glad I volunteered with VIN because they were very reliable and organized. From the emails, to the airport pick up, to the VIN introduction in the first couple of days I was very pleased and felt very safe in a very unfamiliar place. The VIN staff was very kind! My volunteer experience teaching English at the monastery was… Read Full Review

“Volunteering Nepal”

Written on: 03/07/2013 by pmkvt14 (1 review written)

In the spring i was looking for a volunteering opportunity for the summer, Nepal caught my eye because of the unique culture along with how foreign the country is to me. I decided then to go to Nepal through Volunteer Initiative Nepal, the reason why i decided to join this program was because of the opportunity they give you to trek, along with living with a host family. They mission of VIN is to empower marginalized communities by empowering women and youth of Nepal. This did not seem as… Read Full Review

“Travel with a Purpose”

Written on: 21/06/2012 by deechapon (1 review written)

As a seasoned traveler, I was ready to have a different experience when I chose to travel to Nepal and work with Volunteers Initiative Nepal (VIN). In previous travels, I found that viewing different cultures from the perspective of a nice comfy hotel and air conditioned tour bus, left me wanting a more quality experience and connection with the people who's land I was visiting. I found with VIN the ideal combination of being able to experience living with a local family in a rural area of… Read Full Review

“Volunteer In Nepal through VIN!”

Written on: 11/06/2012 by suszoe (0 reviews written)

I spent a summer Volunteering in Kathmandu through VIN. It was, hands down, a life changing experience. The area I worked in was Technology Education - Bhupi, the director, made sure that all the details were taken care of: in terms of who I would be volunteering with, the times etc...I worked with teachers, students and youth groups - and it was truly an exchange of knowledge. Besides volunteering, VIN helped me to organize a short trip to Chitwan. Vin helped other volunteers arrange trips… Read Full Review
