Why choose us?

Thousands of people from all over the world have come to Nepal and fallen in love with the country and its people. They come not only for the trekking and rafting, but to also experience firsthand the magic of the Himalayan culture and, perhaps most significantly, the indomitable spirit of the Himalayan people. From my experience, I know that the highlight for many visitors is to meet the Nepalese people, along with experiencing the majesty of Mount Everest and the birthplace of the Buddha. The generosity and kindness of the Nepalese people is renowned; they will welcome you as a member of their own family and not as a "Western tourist." You become part of their family and, when you arrive, you are treated as a brother, sister, son, or daughter. Indeed, a central theme of Nepalese culture and tradition is the level of hospitality shown to visitors. While the Nepalese are poor, they are honest and, if given the opportunity, will show you the welcoming nature of Himalayan culture. Whether you are WWOOFing, working in development/campaign/internship projects or simply travelling, you have the potential to help create and support an organic Nepal that provides sustainable development for its entire population.

Even in the 21st century, Nepal still suffers from extreme poverty. Many rural communities are unable to provide basic education for their children. Corruption is deep-rooted in society, and the emotional and physical scars of war are still visible throughout the country. There is little infrastructure, such as roads or electricity, and the quality of life for average Nepalese citizens is very low. Even the work of hundreds, even thousands, of NGOs and INGOs has not been enough to break Nepal free from the grip of poverty. Evidence shows that a new vision and approach are necessary in order to bring lasting peace and prosperity to Nepal. As the WWOOF Nepal Coordinator,I want to start an open discussion and debate about development issues in Nepal. What unique challenges does Nepal face? What specifically can be done to alleviate the suffering of the Nepalese people? How can we create sustainable jobs that provide living wages? One primary vehicle for change is education. Nepal must educate its citizens in order to develop a healthy, skilled workforce - one that supports a diverse and sustainable economy. Another means of change is the establishment of a stable and democratic government, free of corruption and headed by a dedicated leader who strives for the betterment of all citizens.

Other means also include the fair implementation of the law and the protection of human rights. However, Nepal is an agricultural country, and 90 percent of its economy depends on agriculture, therefore, another potential vehicle for change is the transition to organic farming. By developing a comprehensive approach to organic agriculture and increasing the amount of organic farming, there would be a greater opportunity for sustainable change in Nepalese society. Nepal could become a hub for the international market with exported Nepalese organic fruit and vegetables. To achieve this, we could see thousands of international WWOOFers come to Nepal to help develop organic farming, with the result that our impoverished farmers could improve their lives and help our society become sustainable. We want peace to come to Nepal - our goal is to think positive and work for change. By becoming a WWOOFer you are the one who will help get this change underway in our society. The sooner you come and WWOOF, more farmers here will become interested in the program and will ask for other volunteers. Our goal is to teach the organic concept to one farmer at a time, and then in turn they will teach others and so on. Within a 50-year cycle, we could have thousands of farmers join us to create an organic Nepal by 2060.
