VIN’s children’s clubs are extracurricular programs set up for youth of all ages. This is a platform provided to the children that aims to develop their innate skills, develop their creativity, increase their awareness of community issues such as health and the environment, as well as help them apply what they have learnt in the classroom to real life situations.

You as a volunteer, placed into the workings of one of these children’s clubs, will be responsible to organize creative activities, whether they are oriented around contemporary dance, or formal debate, as well as help the children in strengthening workshops that deal with leadership training, life skills and many other important factors. While you work within these local children’s clubs, VIN will sort out your living arrangements by placing you in a Nepali host family where you will get the chance to observe the Nepali culture and everyday practices.  

“We learn so many things like writing drama script, role playing techniques which we didn’t know before.”
Samjhana Tiwari, member of Jitpur Children’s Club

“Public Speaking training given by VIN is very effective. We learn how to speak in front of a large group of people. It helps our personality development.”
Reshma Lama, Treasurer of Tarkeshwor Children’s Club

“Children’s Rights Advocacy training is very useful for children. We know about children’s rights and responsibilities; we became able to advocate in case of children’s rights suppression.”
Suman Nyupane, past president of Jitpur Children’s Club

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.
