About Volunteers Initiative Nepal
VIN is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organisation which was founded in 2005 by a diverse group drawn from development workers, educationalists, social activists and other professionals.
Unlike many other development NGOs, VIN serves to directly put efforts for change in the hands of local people. It actively encourages people to volunteer within their communities, aiming to unite all sectors of society in working together to set up and run local sustainable development projects.
VIN has a board of advisors and a board of directors to direct its staff. VIN also works in partnership with like-minded national and international governmental and non-governmental organisations.
VIN’s main community-based pilot project is located at Jitpur phedi, a rural community surrounded by woods, hills and fields. It lies 11 kilometres from the capital on the outskirts of the Kathmandu Valley near the beautiful Nagarjuna forest reserve.
There are also projects located elsewhere in the region and VIN is currently working to expand its scope to a second community-based site, Okhaldhunga, in the north east of Nepal.
