Nepal is governed by the people of one of the poorest countries in the world and has a per capita income is less than 210$/year. Therefore, since our organization dose not receive financial support from government or donor agencies of any kind, we are not able to provide any stipends, scholarships or allowances to participants. Our organization is run on it's program fees and individual donations.

We offer one of the most affordable program fees in this competitive and expensive time. Compared to many international and some local agencies, our fees our substantially lower. But we are committed to providing excellent, quality volunteer programs that efficiently use the amount we receive.
