Children are regarded as the pillars of any nation. At VIN we believe that they are not only the future but also the present. Therefore the organization primarily focuses its programs on exploring the hidden potential in all children of our working catchments. VIN mobilizes staff
, local & overseas volunteers
to facilitate children-related activities and form Children Clubs in community / public schools
where children can participate and perform various activities to highlight their innate talents.
The clubs have been found to be a good platform for the children to practice their Life Skills.
By this, we mean, they have made it possible for young ones to engage in activities that foster and build on what the children are already good at, or enjoy. In this way, the children, alike the rough precious stones in a mine, are given a chance to smoothen and refine themselves. The international and local Volunteers have been supporting these clubs by organizing various activities such as Children's clubs strengthening workshops
, interaction programs, Life Skills Camps, Career development programs, Magazine publications (including creative articles).
The outcome has been outstanding! – Children have been able to publish wall magazines, magazines, clean up the school environment, conduct various competitions on their own, and perform community dramas and rallies for child rights awareness. So volunteer in Nepal with VIN and your volunteering experience
, those memories that are to some degree like little nuggets of gold, will stay with you for the rest of your days. VIN's Children's Clubs aim to:
