Our Impact

Nepal is one of the poorest, least-developed countries in the world with over half of its population living below the poverty line. Over 80% of the population relies on agriculture for their livelihood. The majority of the population lives in rural areas that are often very difficult to reach, resulting in a lack of basic infrastructures such as clean water, primary health services, basic food and shelter, communication, electricity service, and schools. In order to address the lack of basic infrastructure, a team of development workers, including social activists and ex-overseas and national volunteers founded the Volunteer Society Nepal. Volunteer Society Nepal has been involved in supporting some of the more unfortunate children and women of the country, in an effort to improve their education and development at the grassroots level, by awarding scholarships and sponsorship for primary and secondary schools and strengthening community organizational capabilities. Volunteer Society Nepal has begun a concentrated effort to help develop the managerial and organizational capacities of local institutions, communities, and individuals, to increase the number of self-sustainable improvements through construction, health, environmental and education projects throughout economically disadvantaged areas of Nepal.
