Environment Voluntourism

Environment Voluntourism

HV works closely with several partner organizations. We have been working with The Jane Goodall Institute and Roots & Shoots from the very beginning. The Jane Goodall Institute-- founded by Dr. Jane Goodall, a renowned primatilogist and UN Peace Ambassador--is an international non-profit organization promoting animal and environmental conservation worldwide. The Jane Goodall Institute in Nepal is run by a team of young environmental activists dedicated in preserving nature and wildlife. Volunteers can work together with these young enthusiastic activists and gain firsthand experiences in the field.

Himalayan Voluntourism (HV) is a social enterprise dedicated to the socio-economic development of rural Nepal through the spirit of volunteerism. We believe in the power of transformation through voluntourism.Tourism is popular in Nepal and supports the Nepalese economy as an important revenue generator. Many tourists come to Nepal every year to experience its unique culture, adventure opportunities and the abundant nature. Combining tourism with social outreach provides a cultural experience that engages the participant in the local community… And it is transformative.
