Volunteering

Nepal is a country of breathtaking beauty, abundant wildlife, and fascinating traditional cultures. This country is known as “Land of Paradise”

We are non-governmental organization (NGO) registered with Nepal government and affiliated with Social Welfare Council of Nepal working in the field of Agriculture emphasizing on development of Sustainable Agriculture in Nepal.Our program makes a positive difference in the lives of the deprived society by providing volunteering opportunities to international volunteers.

We provide Nepali culture and training for foreign volunteers who wish to render their services to Nepal in the field of organic agriculture in our organic agriculture resource center and farms. The volunteers can work in other farms which are located in beautiful location. Beside this they can work in the field of Education, Health, Community Development, Orphanage, Disable, Agro -Forestry, Environment and Ecology, Poverty alleviation etc.

We, also make visit to surrounding villages for cultural exchange program as Nepal is widely rich in diverse culture. Nepali culture is distinctively friendly and open and volunteers are made to feel as though they are part of the family. They can enjoy traditional rural villages especially in Gurung/Magar/Darai/Kumal/Bote/Tamang communities.  During this period, volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in local festivals and to learn more about Nepali culture and exchange their culture.

Volunteers also have a chance of adventure, such as white water rafting,  Annapurna trekking and a visit to Royal Chitwan National Park and elephant safari are other attractions. The birth place of Lord Buddha the Lumbini also can be visited in the same time.

The volunteer program is available to individuals or to groups of up to 10 people at a time for the period of one week to five months. We would also like to invite school groups, university students, adult groups and professional organizations who are interested in organic agriculture to create and run custom programs for cultural visits, service projects, volunteer works and internship works in Govardhan Organic Agriculture Resource Center and other farms to dirt their hand working in the farm. Where, volunteers can enjoy diverse culture of different communities and a mixture of natural beauty.

With our extensive local network, experienced staff and comprehensive information about all aspects of Nepal, our staff is able to develop extraordinary opportunities in any corner of Nepal. Our group program is equal in quality to other international groups working in Nepal; please contact us in these ID sadpnepal@gmail.com for more information.
