VIN has been working in collaboration with various orphanages in Nepal to set up Child Care Orphanage Volunteers program. Every year hundreds of orphan & abandoned children wonder the streets of Kathmandu. A majority of them become child laborers, become street children and never get time to actually enjoy childhood. VIN aims to give them their childhood. If you were to become a volunteer, you could be placed into one of the orphanages VIN works with, giving the children the care and support they never received.  

Your job would be to teach the children basic English, and science and math if you can, help them with their homework, teach orphan children basic sanitation, put together little fieldtrips or creative activities such as arts and crafts for them, inspiring them to pursue what they are good at, and overall ensure their physical and emotional well-being. You will also be a helping hand in their daily routines, preparing them for school every morning. Several former volunteers have said this specific program has changed the way they view the world.
