Himalayan Volunteer Society (HVS) is a non-religious, non-political, non-governmental, non-for-profit organization (NGO) which was founded in 2011 by a diverse group drawn from educationalists, university students, social activists and other professionals. Himalayan Volunteer Society focuses on community-based projects involving local volunteers backed up by international volunteers. 

We are dedicated to arranging for volunteers to come to Nepal and be immersed in the culture. Through our placement of the volunteers into the homes of Nepalese families, where they share in the daily life of the average Nepalese while working in the community, we have found that the experience is life-altering and affirming for both the Nepalese and the volunteers.

We provide unique adventure travel and fulfilling volunteer opportunities to people of all ages and backgrounds, regardless of nationality or qualifications. Our program makes a positive difference in the lives of the deprived society by providing travel and volunteer opportunities to international volunteers.
