volunteers in nepal in rural community

This week a group of volunteers in Nepal traveled to a rural community to take part in a child immunization program. According to a recent survey in Nepal 87 percent ofchildren throughout the country have been vaccinated, but every year 660,000 babies are born and need to be vaccinated. Conducting camps in rural villages is time consuming but it's the only way to reach many of the children.

Nepal Volunteers - Housing for women nearly complete at Her Farm with volunteer labor

Posted: Apr 25, 2013   |   From Our Volunteers

With help from 34 volunteers from Stelly's Secondary School, we've nearly finished the first home for women at Her Farm in Nepal.
