In Nepal, NGOs play an important role in the development of the country and improving the quality of life for locals. However, many are in need of volunteer assistance, meaning there are plenty of opportunities to assist under-resourced organizations. Your volunteering can help these worthy initiatives to achieve both the long-term development goals of Nepal and important fundraising goals that directly support the immediate community.
These small, local NGO’s operate in areas including youth and women’s empowerment, education, environment & conservation, public health, management & administration and journalism. Hard-working, independent volunteers who have relevant skills and experience are well suited to this project.
Your tasks can include administrative work, monthly/annual reporting or working in communities to support the initiatives of the NGO you’re placed in. You can expect to work between four - eight hours per day, where your tasks will depend on your individual skills and interests, as well as your program duration.
The NGO Support project is open to all volunteers who have an interest in international relations, social work, development studies, social issues or those who want to learn about project management. A basic knowledge of how non-profit organisations operate is preferred and this understanding will help you maximize your time in Nepal.
Your placement will be decided based on your skills and interests, as well as the needs in Nepal at the time. You will need to be flexible and understand the workload and type of work will vary depending on the time of year and the exact placement you volunteer at.
This project has a minimum duration requirement of 4 weeks to give you enough time to understand the needs of the NGO you’re assisting and maximize your contribution as a volunteer. You need to register no later than four weeks prior to your start date to allow the local team time to arrange your volunteer placement.Apply now
