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

    We are a non-governmental organization 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 support to committed volunteers who have an understanding and respect for all races, religions and cultures and we aim to accommodate all interests, needs and budgets.

    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 demonstration organic farms surrounding Pokhara city which is one of the main tourist destination in the world. The farms are located in beautiful locations with diverse culture. 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 community. Hot spring water bath will be additional attraction during their visit. 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 which they can do paying extra cost. Annapurna trekking of the famous trekking rout of the world, 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. To enjoy diverse culture they can visit Kalesti valley where there is our organic agriculture resource center.

    Our volunteer program is available to individuals or to groups of up to 10 people at a time for the period of one week to three months. We would like to invite school groups, university students, adult groups and professional organizations who are interested in organic (eco) agriculture to create and run custom programs for cultural visits, service projects, volunteer works and internship works in our farms. Newly established Organic Agriculture Resource Center is also another attractive venue for volunteering or to dirt their hand working in the farm which is under construction. We also have extended our program to Dhulikhel area near to Kathmandu. Where, volunteers can enjoy diverse culture of different communities and a mixture of natural beauty in this area.
