VIN’s summer volunteer program is a program that combines Nepali culture, trekking and adventure, volunteer work for the good of the locals, and shopping in authentic Nepal, all together in a matter of weeks. VIN aims to deliver the experience of a lifetime to foreigners, and believes that the itinerary put together will successfully integrate the two concepts of work and explore Himalayas.

You as a volunteer will be given a proper orientation on how to handle yourself in Nepal, and then after this, you will be placed in the Nepali village, with a Nepali family, in a home-stay set up, where you will be able to make visits to the local schools or orphanages and teach English. You may also work with women empowerment groups or with children's clubs and early childhood development centers (ECD)

After this “volunteering” period, you will be led on a trekking - either Everest Base Camp or Annapurna Base Camp. Lastly, before you leave Nepal, you will be given some time to explore the city of Kathmandu, shop around for souvenirs, and enjoy the nightlife at various tourist spots, the largest one being Thamel.
