Volunteer Society Nepal offers a variety of opportunities for students who wish to broaden their work experience in their specific field of study. Working abroad in a developing country is a challenge. But it can make your internship all the more rewarding. You will develop new skills and observe different ways of working. On top of this you will gain real-world experience and engage in a meaningful cultural exchange. We are careful to match your skills, knowledge, experience and learning goals to the right placement. In this way you can learn and contribute in the most effective way.
We assist with the development of Nepali communities through a diverse range of projects. Our projects are generally aimed at children, youth and women. Empowering these groups will create positive change in Nepal. To reach this goal, we place interns in schools, women and/or child care centers, and monasteries. Volunteer Society Nepal runs four projects in Kathmandu: A school, disability center, a women center and an after school child care center. Besides these projects, we offer internship placements in a variety of locations through local partner organizations across Nepal.
You can fill out our contact form or application form here. We will then discuss your skills and, together with your length of stay, we can decide which placement would suit you the most. It is also possible to combine multiple placements, for example two weeks in the women center in Kathmandu and two weeks of volunteering at a school in a rural setting. Volunteering is for all ages, from high school students to retired teachers.
All of our interns receive an on-arrival orientation that includes Nepali lessons, sight seeing and an introduction to their home stay and workplace. For more information on prices and what is included, have a look at our fees page.
As an intern you will get guidance from your local coordinator and from the Internship Coordinator of Volunteer Society Nepal. She is from the Netherlands and has an M.Sc in International Development and a minor in Education Management and Sustainable Development. We also provide you with all the details needed for your college or university. After your placement we can complete your evaluation forms together.
As an intern you will have an amazing time with us as you:
