Volunteer Nepal National Group (VolNepal) is a local, independent, and non-profit organization. Our primary objective is to facilitate the social development process in Nepali communities.
Our work encompasses several sectors of social development; please see our Projects page for a more comprehensive overview of what those efforts include. We complete all of our projects with integrity and awareness, all the while keeping the concepts of sustainability and ecologically sound development firmly in focus.
In general, we focus on sustainable rural development, education, medical projects and livelihood support. By structuring our efforts so that they make sense to everyone – the women, youth, and community leaders specifically – we can also ensure the effective continuation of our hard work long after we’ve left the community. By involving the poorest and most marginalized sectors of those communities in our plans, we take the first steps to creating future employment potential for those individuals as well.
One of the major pillars upon which we operate is the guarantee of efficient communication between our volunteers, the communities we serve, our valued donors, and the NGOs we partner with. Only by working effectively together can we achieve what we set out to do, and create a better Nepal. To that end, we take great pride in being considered amongst the most responsible and reputable NGOs in Nepal. Click here to see our Corporate Donors
VolNepal was founded in 2000. After a few years in operation, we identified the need for a greater transparency and reputability with the international community, and thus we registered ourselves with the relevant local governing bodies. In 2005, we registered with the Chief District Administration Office of Kathmandu, as well as the Social Welfare Council of Nepal, both of whose primary functions are to oversee the maintenance of law and order, ensure human rights, and protect the humanistic livelihood of Nepal’s citizens in the case of a natural disaster.
Both the Chief District Administration Office of Kathmandu and the Social Welfare Council of Nepal require annual audits and financial reports to be submitted. Please visit our Commitment to Transparency page to view our Annual Reports (in the form of balance sheets).
