Kim Lumibao, Volunteer

I came to VHS Bhaktapur as an administrative volunteer, and I had a great time working there. VHS has a lot of educational and social programs and I felt very involved in contributing to these programs and to the different events that VHS held during my stay, such as the opening ceremony of their new office in Kathmandu. After the earthquake of April 25, 2015, I was also able to witness how VHS assisted various local youth groups and individuals of Bhaktapur in mobilizing relief and rebuilding efforts not just for the town of Bhaktapur but also in the neighboring villages and other districts. This was the highlight of my stay, and I felt like I was really able to get to know Nepal from the perspective of the local young people of Bhaktapur as I interacted with them daily throughout this period. The staff of VHS are also very friendly and accommodating to their foreign volunteers, and the atmosphere in the office is always welcoming. It was a very meaningful experience for me overall, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is interested in engaging themselves with local young people and in experiencing life in Nepal from the locals' perspective.
