From 01/10/2009 to 22/12/2009

Volunteering with VIN was a great way for me to feel at home in a new country. VIN is making a noble effort to bring positive change to Nepal and, from my experience I can say that VIN volunteers are appreciated and checked in with regularly by the VIN staff. I was working in a town about an hours bus ride outside of Kathmandu with a rural population of farmers.

In the day time I helped with sustainable farming related projects and in the evenings I helped with two English classes. I lived in a volunteer house with between four and eight other people. A Nepali cook came to prepare two meals a day, and a translator would come to help us talk with the villagers.

The people I met were very friendly and the location is beautiful. I felt free to take time off from volunteering to explore Nepal, but there is also always work to be done. I feel sad to be leaving this place where people have treated me so well these last three months. I hope you will enjoy volunteering with VIN!
