VIN is a not-for-profit nongovernmental organization based in Nepal. We do not have any funding agency. VIN therefore is looking for a Grant writer and fundraiser who can write project proposals based on real life situations in the VIN working sites to fund its upcoming projects. The grant writer will help VIN develop projects for its future working community sites.

As VIN does not have any funding organization, it solely depends on volunteer programs. Our administration operates in a cost effective manner. First and foremost, VIN requests all interested donors to send clothes and books (even second hand), if possible. We are in the process of constructing Community Learning Centers (CLC) in the Communities in our catchments. The books, either in English or Nepali, will be warmly received by the village people who have no immediate access to educational materials. Similarly, all clothes will be distributed to needy families upon arrival, allowing about two weeks for organization and transportation.  
If it is not feasible for you to collect clothes or books, you can support the people by sending monetary donations which will help us buy materials for students and community members alike. There are two modes through which you may send donations:
