I participated in VIN’s Volunteer program during my spring break, and I can honestly say that it was the one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. It was a perfect way to really experience Nepalese culture, as well as share my culture with them. I loved the family I stayed with, and will continue to stay in contact with them. I also really enjoyed working with the kids at the orphanage. They are amazing children, and I feel lucky to have gotten to know them. I got the opportunity to see more of what VIN does with the community, and completely support its activities. I left Nepal with sadness, but its people will always have a place in my heart. I will surely return! I recommend this program to anyone who is interested in a unique, positive way to contribute to the people of Nepal, and have a first-hand cultural experience with them. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
