Through its campaign, NVCYE Programme – ICYE Nepal strives to build recognition of the long-term ICYE volunteering programme in Nepal and attract more young people to volunteer in Nepal. One of the biggest challenges faced for this is the difficult in obtaining long-term visas for volunteers. ICYE Nepal is therefore concentrating 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 is working to increase the number of incoming volunteers and the number of host projects in the country.
To reach a larger number of young people, ICYE Nepal has revamped its website, making it more attractive, fun and easy to access as well as being useful and informative. It highlights the benefits of the volunteering exchange programme and adds a personal touch by sharing current volunteers’ stories online.
ICYE Nepal is making promotional videos presenting Nepalese culture, the kind of programmes it offers and the personal testimonials from the volunteers in Nepal.

Finnish language has a very special pronunciation and sounds such as y, ö and ä. In the beginning I concentrated in saying the words carefully and repeated them many times. I tried to learn complicated words very well. Finnish language skills are often emphasized as a key factor in adapting into the Finnish society, so now I'm trying hard to learn the language.” – Ganesh Mahato from Nepal volunteers in a school in Finland.ICYE-Nepal wishes him all the best for his Langugage Learnning during his volunteering period
