Description
About Us

Discover and volunteer Nepal (DAV Nepal) is an officially registered nonprofit, local, volunteering organization specializing in cheap and affordable volunteering oppurtunities in Nepal. We work for the benefit of several local (and disadvantaged) communities. We are a group of Nepalese volunteers and Development Studies graduates who have background work experiences in tourism. We opened this organization combining all our interests, chief of which is to promote development projects and eventually try and better the socio-economic status of communities where we have chosen to work. We offer international volunteers customized projects -- opportunities that benefit both the volunteers and the people of Nepal. And all the cost here is the cost we charge of volunteering along with adventure in Nepal.

Mission and Vision

DAV Nepal carries the mission to promote volunteer opportunities throughout the country. Our concern is to work differently than the heavily donor-dependent NGO model, which as development graduates we have seen failing before our eyes. Of course the scale of our programs are small but we are determined to see that our projects reflect a very local understanding of the communities and that it is run with enthusisastic support from all stakeholders. If we start a project and run it with our volunteer friends, we want to make sure that the community is equally interested, participating and in fact sustatining it. We aim to link international volunteers with Nepali locals in an attempt to genuienely put something good to fruition. And we will make sure that volunteers will thoroughly enjoy the process and will gain a deep understanding of a community that is in all respects mostly strange to them.

Objectives:

- Enable international volunteers (and the volunteering industry) to make significant contribution to the ongoing development of Nepal
- Through volunteer exchanges and volunteer's expertise, build capacity of local communities in Nepal to enterprise and support their participation in the labor market
- To provide volunteers with an authentic Nepali experience that includes complete cultural immersion in local communities
- To facilitate the socio-economic development of communities in Nepal through our customized volunteering projects
- Help train, educate and support the poorest and disadvantaged communities to allow them to manage their own development projects.

What we do:

- Customized projects for impactful volunteering.
- Language lessons, cultural orientation and assistance in understanding local history and contexts
- Assist people who come to Nepal to study, conduct research, and do voluntary work
- Through volunteer exchanges and volunteer's expertise, build capacity of local communities in Nepal to enterprise and support their participation in the labor market
- Organize adventure activities such as trekking, national park tour, jungle activities and many more for our volunteer friends to make them experience that Nepal adventure has to offer
