Volunteering in Nepal

Volunteering in Nepal

No one has ever become poor from giving.” – Anne Frank.

December 5th marks the International Volunteer Day and the theme “Together We Can Through Volunteering” fits rightly so. Having been in Kathmandu Valley for almost a year and witnessing the transition of Covid-19 phases has indeed been a humbling and enriching experience. The very process of all the volunteers of GFF Helps International coming together from various parts of the world and joining hands to create a difference in our own initiatives towards the country that we have volunteered has been a fulfilling experience.
