GapYearNepal internship placements are designed to facilitate a better understanding of the situations faced by people who live in a developing country, and now – thanks to the wonders of modern technology – these internships can be completed virtually! As a part of the virtual internship, participants are paired with an organization in Nepal that matches the participant’s own goals and aspirations. Once placement has been made, the participant will receive assignments that can be completed remotely – with the guidance of local mentors, as needed. Utilizing your Nepali mentors will be instrumental in learning and gaining an understanding of Nepal customs and culture, and will help you to better support the Nepali organizations.

Modern technology has completely transformed peoples’ way of life and way of learning. Internships done remotely can provide all of the same benefits as those done more traditionally – when utilizing all of the proper, available resources. In fact, remote internships even allow for greater emphasis on certain skills that students may not think about when participating in a traditional internship; skills such as accountability, flexibility, and self-discipline. Remote internships require participants to be much more self-aware and able to...
We always encourage the Interns for the first few months to work remotely and travel to the Host country and also get the experience of being there in the organization.

My 12 week internship with VolNepal has been an invaluable experience, giving me an important insight into how grassroot charities operate and serve their communities. The team at VolNepal worked hard to find projects which would be most beneficial to me and my career plans and gave me the responsibility to work independently, which I really enjoyed and learned a lot from. The two projects I completed during this time were a grant proposal and a project impact case study, and Shiva and the team gave me a lot of guidance, support and feedback. Gaining this internship experience alongside my Master’s degree has also opened up lots of further work opportunities which I wouldn’t have had otherwise, and working with VolNepal to support their community has been such a worthwhile way to spend my time. I would recommend it to everyone who would like to gain experience in international development and the charity sector.
As a virtual volunteer for VolNepal I have had the opportunity to make an impact internationally, despite the constraints that COVID-19 has placed on volunteering. I have always had a passion for getting to know new cultures and for pushing myself in new directions. I have never been to Nepal, but found that this virtual volunteering opportunity allowed me to learn about Nepal and have an immersive experience even virtually. Each week, I would meet virtually with my two supervisors to develop a plan and discuss potential tasks for the upcoming week. I find these meetings to be very helpful in that I am able to have consistent communication and clear expectations for the task I am completing. These meetings have allowed me to collaborate with task ideas and come up with tasks that are necessary as well as meet my personal interests within the organization. I have had the opportunity to manage Linkedin campaigns, increasing company visits 60%, and creating content. This experience has been valuable in helping me to build skills that I can use later on in my career. I also have researched and written project proposals for Psycho-Recovery from COVID-19 initiative. This project is one that appealed to my personal interests, and I really appreciate the ways that VolNepal worked to incorporate my interests into the assignments I completed. I also conducted virtual interviews with project directors of successful projects and then wrote articles for the website. These interviews provided me with opportunities to engage with locals and to learn more about VolNepal’s mission and to meet local project directors. VolNepal has a wide variety of projects, so the opportunity to interview and learn about the success that they have had over the years was extremely eye-opening and gave me a greater appreciation for the work that is being done. In the midst of a global pandemic, it has been an amazing opportunity to engage with an international non-profit as successful and diverse as VolNepal.
During the uncertain time of 2020, I embarked on a remote internship with Himalayan Circuit. Whilst this has been a challenging year all-round, I found comfort and hope in my internship connecting with beautiful people from Nepal. At the same time, I was juggling my master’s thesis. Still, the frequent meetings and friendships I developed made the summer far more enjoyable. I worked primarily on treks surrounding sustainable development and tourism for Nepal. Although my internship was due to end in September, I made the decision to extend and continue into the winter months. The people at Himalayan Circuit are so accommodating and passionate about their organisation. It was one of the reasons I decided to extend. I have never been to Nepal, the closest I have been in India and Malaysia. Still, I have learned so much about Nepal and the beautiful people who live there. I can’t wait to be able to visit myself.
