Village Nepal Volunteer (VNV) program in Okhaldhunga district was created by Children for Green New Nepal (CGNN), www.cgnn.org.np , with the help of an inspired, independent volunteer/traveler with the goal of providing the opportunity for service learning and intercultural immersion to international volunteers in Nepal. VNV places volunteers in the remote parts of the Okhaldhunga district in eastern Nepal, not far from Mount Everest and other Himalayan peaks. The VNV coordinators work with volunteers to provide benefits to the local community and to ensure a rewarding and unforgettable experience for the volunteers. Some areas for potential volunteer work include teacher training, English Language instruction, other school-based development, environmental education, waste management and sanitation, conducting health workshops, assisting at the local hospital, involvement in youth group activities, and creating informational posters and murals.
Essential to VNV’s success, volunteers will work closely with community members to create and develop beneficial and sustainable programs and activities. VNV representatives will consult with volunteers prior to their departure as well as after their arrival in Nepal, to develop an individualized volunteer experience. CGNN will work closely with the volunteer throughout their village stay to ensure the individuals comfort and progress. We pride ourselves on our ability to tailor your volunteer experience, and allowing our volunteers the freedom to construct programs and activities true to their experience and passions.
Whether you work in a school, clinic, in the community, or simply assist with day to day tasks, the friendships that develops enriches the lives of both the volunteers and the local people.
