Volunteer Stories

NAMASTE TO ALL YOU !!! My Exchange programme in Nepal was the best thing that happened in the just concluded year of 2015. This could not have been possible without my host organization Namsaling Community Development Center (NCDC).

It is interesting to see how can two different countries, located in different continents with totally different cultures and habits, can still share the same problems. In Africa, specifically in Mozambique, 16 million m² of forest is destroyed every year

It has been a pleasure to spend the past 1.5 weeks with the NCDC staff! During our time here, we got a taste of both field work in the VDC of Namsaling as well as office work in Ilam.
