It has launched a "Clean and Green Environmental Campaign" in various parts of Nepal focusing on Community Based Forest and Environmental issues.

Cost and other information for the Volunteering in Nepal:
HECAC is truly non profit making organization and it's motive is to help the needy people of Nepal. Since you are coming to support all the work we are doing and we support to do, we have no administration cost on your volunteer cost. You only need to cover your local transportation and food and lodging. This types of cost cover by more or less US$ 15 to US$ 20 per day basis. Lets say if you wish to volunter for one week in our "Vrious Projects", your total cost will be approx US$120./ + your local transportation to the field visit and return, which is about US$ 20 with return.
If you are first time in Nepal and this is your first volunteer work, then our program coordinator may need to assist in this case you need to pay his expenses which cost almost the same as you going to spend. Apart of paying his food accommodations and transportations, you do not need to pay any extra fee for assisting you.
During your volunteering period, you will eat local food and sleep locally. Of course our coordinator will arrange suitable place to sleep and help villagers to cook food. It is simple and I am sure apart of the volunteer, you even enjoy your time with locals.
Some of the our volunteer areas are very remote and these local people may not have place to sleep, so we provide even tented camp and we preprare food. This case your expenses will be higher than above. Well if this is the case, please email us and we will give you all details after sudies the types of project you're choosing for..
