Welcome To Volunteer Society Nepal

Nepal is an astonishingly beautiful and diverse country, ranging from the well-known peaks of the Himalaya to the low-lying regions of the Terai. The Nepali people also foster a wealth of cultural diversity, with over 70 languages or dialects and scores of traditional festivals celebrated throughout the year. The nation deserves to take pride in having a unique, and indeed very rich cultural and historical background. Nepal is also an under-developed country, with low rates of literacy, high rates of poverty and a persistent gender imbalance. The Volunteer Society Nepal seeks to address the issues of literacy, poverty and gender...

Nepal is one of the most beautiful, culturally rich and welcoming country in the world. It is home to Mount Everest, the birthplace of Lord Buddha, and an astonishingly beautiful and diverse landscape, ranging from the well-known peaks of the Himalaya to the low-lying regions of the Terai. The Nepali people are as diverse at the geography, with over 70 languages or dialects and scores of traditional festivals celebrated throughout the year.
Nepal is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of biodiversity due to its altitude variation and geographical position. The country lies 60 meters above sea level. The main diverse feature about Nepal is its incredible variety of ecosystem, thick tropical jungles, teaming wildlife, greatest mountain range, forested hills and frozen valleys. Its spectacular geography is one of the richest cultural landscape, which offers an astonishing diversity of sightseeing attractions and adventure opportunities, which are found no where on earth.

The annual calendar is divided into five seasons- summers, winters, spring, monsoon and autumn. Due to presence of Mount Everest and some other challenging mountains in the world, Nepal is a hot spot of mountaineering. Many travelers with the intention of adventure or climbing visit the place to explore several of its sightseeing.
The ranges of mountains in Nepal are captured by high peaks, gorgeous hills, natural parks, and lakes.

Children, youth, schools and communities need your help. You may know that 97 out of 100 children and adolescents still live in villages, and that 31% of all Nepali people live under the poverty line. The education and health facilities in rural areas are insufficient; and the schools lack trained teachers, as well as a sufficient number of teachers in general. Every year, hundreds of children leave their villages to arrive in small and big cities in search of work. Most of these children are deprived of educational and other opportunities, so after coming into the cities they work as child laborers in restaurants, hotels, and factories. In such a messy situation, the small efforts from volunteers can bring hope for greater change in all communities.
According to the United Nations, Nepal ranks 138th in the world in overall human development, behind such countries as India and Bangladesh and one of the least developed countries in Asia. About one-half of the Nepalese people live in poverty. They endure the typical problems of impoverished people around the world, such as high rates of malnourishment, childhood mortality and illiteracy.
Rural healthcare services are at best rudimentary, with government health posts often going unstaffed and undersupplied for years. Nutrition is inadequate; vaccination rates are poor. Access to education is irregular, and low literacy rates remain a barrier to economic progress.

  • 42% of the population live below the poverty line on less than $700 a year
  • 15,000 orphans are living on Kathmandu’s streets
  • 42% of the population of Nepal are unemployed¹
  • 51% illiteracy rate throughout Nepal¹
  • 2.5 doctors are available for each 100,000 inhabitants²
  • 54% of Nepali children are malnourished³
If you’re someone who loves the view of mountains or someone who loves to climb them, then Nepal should be on the top of your bucket-list. Out of the top 10 mountain ranges in the world lying above 8000 metre, 8 lies in Nepal. This includes the World’s tallest Mountain – Mount Everest. What’s more beautiful about Nepal is you don’t really have to be near the mountain ranges to enjoy the view. You can see the mountain ranges even from Terai.
The topography of this Himalayan Kingdom makes it the first choice for adventure tours. If you’re someone who looks for adventures beyond the normal boundaries then Nepal is your destination. River Rafting, Paragliding, Trekking, Mountain Climbing, Kayaking, Boating, Bungee Jumping, Mountain Flight, you name it are all available in Nepal. You can also find the world’s most extreme Zipline here in Pokhara, Nepal.
Nepal is known as the home to world Heritages. Nepal has heavy Hindu and Buddhist influences from neighbouring Tibet and India, and these are reflected in its architecture.With four UNESCO world heritage sites in Nepal, history buffs will have a field day exploring the country’s rich legacy.
In Kathmandu Valley alone, there are seven groups of monuments and buildings highlighted by UNESCO for its historic and artistic achievements: The Durbar Squares of Hanuman Dhoka (Kathmandu), Patan and Bhaktapur, the Buddhist stupas of Swayambhu and Bauddhanath, and the Hindu temples of Pashupati and Changu Narayan.
The other three UNESCO world heritage sites are Sagarmatha National Park which includes Mount Everest, Chitwan National Park in the Terai region, and Lumbini, the birthplace of Buddha.Beyond all the sights and activities Nepal has to offer, I reckon it’s the inaccessibility of the landlocked country that adds to its enigmatic charm.
Gautama Buddha on whose teaching Buddhism was founded was born in Nepal. Lumbini is one of the holiest places of one of the world’s great religions, and its remains contain important evidence about the nature of Buddhist pilgrimage centres from as early as the 3rd century BC.
