Through this campaign, NVCYE Programme – ICYE Nepal strives to build recognition of the long-term ICYE volunteering programme in Nepal and draw more young people to volunteer in Nepal. However, one of the biggest challenges it faces is the lack of long-term visa for volunteers. ICYE Nepal will therefore concentrate its efforts on gaining recognition of volunteering in Nepal and getting the local authorities to sanction 12-month visas for young people who wish to volunteer in the country. Simultaneously, it aims at increasing the number of incoming volunteers as well as the number of host projects in the country.
As ICYE Nepal would like to reach a larger number of young people, it will revamp its website to make it more attractive by highlighting the benefits of the volunteering exchange programme and adding a personal touch by encouraging current volunteers to share their stories online. ICYE Nepal hopes that the website will be fun and easy to access as well as useful and informative.
To highlight the benefits of volunteering in Nepal, ICYE Nepal will make a promotional video presenting Nepalese culture, the kind of programmes it offers and the personal testimonials from the volunteers in Nepal.
