Volunteer Society Nepal is a non-government organization and is always working hard to raise funds, through various activities and fundraisers, and trying to coordinate programs with like-minded organizations. Thus, we charge our volunteers a nominal amount for raising funds needed to carry out all of our projects. But VSN keeps cost as low as possible, a difficult task in itself. VSN volunteering programs are absolutely the most affordable in Nepal. The volunteering period can be arranged from 2 weeks to 5 months. Certain programs follow a stricter schedule and include a good deal of traveling, trekking, and other activities.
