Introduction

VHS was established to let people meet, share and experience new culture every day. It is also a place where volunteers are fully integrated and can learn and teach in the same time. People from all different nations are welcome here and we try to find the right place or a host family for each of them. According to the principles of a Volkshochschule, in the German speaking countries we believe that everybody has a knowledge which is worth to be shared. 

VHS is the biggest formal and informal learning center in town. We teach German and Nepali language, we counsel students on their way abroad, we organize workshops and trainings but also various programs like cultural festivals, awareness programs or information evenings. As volunteer or intern you will be encouraged to get engaged either directly in one of these offers or in helping us providing the administrative backend to make all this happen.Therefore we have possibilities for Nepali as well as engaged persons from abroad.
