Description

Agriculture is the single largest employer in Nepal, providing livelihoods for 68 percent of the population. However, many local farmers struggle to make a profit and produce an adequate supply of food for their communities.

As a volunteer on the Sustainable Agriculture project in Nepal, your focus is on providing support to small-scale local farmers, resulting in improved livelihoods for farming communities and more resilient and sustainable agriculture practices.

Volunteers are placed with a local family to provide assistance on a farm, learning traditional Nepalese agricultural techniques and practices while also introducing knowledge of newer farming methods and market opportunities. You can expect to be involved in tasks such as clearing land, cultivating and harvesting crops.
