Description

Our environmental project are runs since its establishment. Collaborate with the local rural community and international volunteers conduct major research, promote sustainable, profitable practices to meet environmental challenges while experiencing Nepal's colorful culture! Due to the rapid degradation of forest and lack of an awareness program to community people about environmental issues, the balance of ecology is decreasing daily. Flooding and pollution are the main concerns for environmental degradation We Volunteer Nepal has always cared about environmental issues since its establishment. It has started a village based nursery in sultana and kapiya east of chitwan district near the chitwan national park, with an aim of producing and distributing forest species seedlings to community people for the purpose of plantation. Environmental awareness project will be defined by the individual volunteers based upon their areas of expertise and the needs of the village community. Example projects include: creating "green" clubs, planting a flower garden, planting trees, garbage management, recycling program, making a smokeless stove, building a toilet pit etc. volunteers may also provide assistance to youth clubs or women's group in the community sharing their ideas, skills and knowledge about environmental issues.
