Y.V.N.Program

Youth Volunteers Nepal (YVN) was the first major program of the Barbara Peace Foundation.   It selected potential young people, provided them with training and sent them to a needy village to serve as a volunteer for one year .

To achieve its mission YVN undertook the following activities:

  • Identifying  remote and disadvantaged villages for volunteer placement.
  • Selecting volunteers with skills, passion and patriotism and assigning them to identified  remote villages.
  • Providing orientation and training to the volunteers, linking them with other like minded organizations and resources; making regular visits to their assigned villages.
  • Supporting, mentoring and supervising volunteers to work effectively in becoming  “role models” and “agents of change”.
  • Upon completion of their volunteer service, encouraging volunteers to utilize their “appreciation fund” to start small-scale village enterprises, and thus inspire potential emigrants to stay in Nepal and work in their own villages.
  • Upon completion of their volunteer service, encouraging volunteers to use their “appreciation fund’ to further develop and inspire new initiatves among other emigrating Nepali youth.
