How much does it cost?

Volunteers Initiative Nepal (VIN) is a not-for-profit non-governmental organization and has not been funded by any organizations. VIN is proud to offer all of the services, that our competitors offer, at a very special economical price. VIN’s costs are nearly two to three times less then other volunteering organizations. We are Nepal based organization and we place volunteers directly to our own projects. We therefore do not have to pay for any other agencies or organizations. We have mainly volunteer staffs and do not have to spend that much for the operation cost. Our full staffs also do not make 6-figured salaries; and we work very hard and smart to keep costs down especially for you the volunteer where it counts the most. That’s the reason VIN’s volunteering programs are the most affordable programs in Nepal compared to other organizations.  We remain devoted to maintaining both the quality of the program and the safety of all volunteers involved. Our program costs range from 260 Euros to 990 Euros depending on the program and the length of stay. Any money saved out of the program fees directly goes to our projects. Our all programmes are funded through volunteers supports. Here is a brief summary of the program costs that VIN offers:
