VINLMTV10G – Promotional Volunteer
The western nations has a long and well established history of volunteerism. The concept
of volunteerism evolved in Europe in an institutionalized form after the series of war,
devastating world wars. The people united together and helped each other to rise after the
devastation of war. The volunteerism is deep rooted in our religion and culture in the
oriental country like Nepal but yet to be institutionalized like in the west. Paati-pauwa,
Dharmashala were the ancient practices of volunteerism inNepal.
In the western country Volunteerism is an essential part of life and is crucial in individual’s
career. We seek volunteer who is motivated to promote volunteerism in Nepal. The
volunteer will visit various communities, universities, schools, colleges and orient students,
teachers on the importance of volunteerism to help people in need.
