My experience with VIN has proven to be one of the best experiences I have had. With all of the numerous organizations to choose from, I was unsure at first that VIN would be what I was looking for. However after meeting the first day I knew I was in good hands and throughout my weeks I was extremely happy with VIN's willingness to help you have the best possible experience. They were very flexible, allowing me to experience a range of programs including trekking, monastery life, and the community setting. This allowed me to experience all of Nepal, not just a part. I met so many friendly people, all willing to help. My host family took me in as one of their own, and the monastery welcomed me from day I. All of my experiences and people I met will stay with me long after I've returned home to the US.
