Program overview

An increase in gender equality is linked to upward trends in a range of important sustainable development metrics like an increase in national income and fewer illnesses in mothers and young children. You can contribute to some of these positive developmental impacts by volunteering with GVI on women’s empowerment projects in Nepal. 

Volunteers might assist with conducting literacy and numeracy classes with both girls and women, hosting vocational skill workshops with women, and facilitating discussions in local communities on women’s and child health. We also work on creating awareness around human rights violations.

Throughout your time on the program you will share your living quarters, owned by a Nepali family, with participants from around the world providing a truly immersive cultural experience. The house overlooks Pokhara’s Phewa Lake and the Annapurna mountains. Project work is carried out during office hours on weekdays. Evenings and weekends are yours to explore Pokhara with new friends made on the project. 


  • Contribute to UN SDG #5, Gender Equality. 
  • Gain experience in training, child and adult education, as well as sustainable development. 
  • Live and work with other participants from all around the world who are all committed to making a global impact. 
  • Immerse yourself in Nepali culture at our homestay-style accommodation on the edge of Pokhara’s Lake Phewa. 
  • Experience the natural beauty of Nepal while trekking or paragliding.
