Volunteering in Nepal
VSO has a proud history of working in Nepal. Currently, volunteers in Nepal are working on a number of initiatives supporting inclusive education, social inclusion and gender equality.
Volunteering in Nepal
Volunteers in Nepal are working at all levels to support thousands of vulnerable girls to make empowered decisions about their own futures. Volunteers are integral in ensuring these girls have access to a quality education and other services that will enable them to break the cycle f poverty.
Volunteers also work on a number of projects working with communities to challenge harmful traditional practices and support young women to pursue their own income-generation projects and live more independently.
We have ambitions to significantly increase the number of people we support through these programmes and are keen to recruit volunteers with:
- Professional education / education management experience
- Professionals with experience addressing gender and social inclusion issue
- Experience in business / SME

What comes after an earthquake
Surviving a natural disaster was not what Jessica Stanford, 34, expected when she began her volunteer placement as a business development adviser in 2014. Instead, she found her calling coordinating humanitarian effort in the wake of Nepal's worst earthquake in 80 years.
Success? Have I made a difference?
Education volunteer Ann reflects on her time working in Nepal on a project to promote girls' education.
