Mission Statement: 

Our mission is to create a global understanding by encouraging volunteers to assist with our community development and youth mobilization programs. Since its inception, INFO has placed over 1250 volunteers from 52 countries in villages throughout Nepal and has developed a wide variety of successful programs addressing environmental and development issues. Many volunteers enjoy their experience so much that they return or extend their placement.

Volunteers visiting Nepal come for different reasons, but are united by their outgoing personality, friendly and easy going nature, their adventurous spirit and most importantly, their desire to make a difference. After completing a training session in Kathmandu, volunteers move to various placements all over Nepal, where they stay with a traditional host family.

INFO Objectives Promote community development without destroying traditional ways of life. To educate communities on the importance of education, English language and literacy, hygiene and sanitary living, and environmental management. To bring Western knowledge, care methodology and experience on a variety of education and health matters to the village communities. To provide education and training for community youths to encourage and create opportunities for self-employment. To focus on improving life for the poorest and most marginalized members of Nepali society, specifically the Tharu and Bote tribes. To provide language lessons and cultural information for people who come to Nepal to study, conduct research, and do voluntary work. To introduce volunteers to the richness of Nepali culture and ensure a safe and memorable stay in a supportive environment.
