Organic Agriculture Farm Nepal

Himalayan Foundation Nepal has organza volunteer to work and help for Organic Agriculture Farm Nepal, Nepal is a country whose main industry is farming. Over 80% of Nepal families are working in agriculture. These farmers work hard in all conditions and for long hours. Most farmers despite their hard efforts live in extreme poverty. Many farms in Nepal use chemical fertilizers and pesticides that other countries no longer support. This is to increase productivity. However evidence suggests that these unnatural farming methods are damaging to the earth, the farming produce and potentially humans that consume the products. They are bad for the ecosystem and could destroy the land. Organic agriculture is a production system that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people. It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity and cycles adapted to local conditions, rather than the use of inputs with adverse effects. Organic agriculture combines tradition, innovation and science to benefit the shared environment and promote fair relationships and a good quality of life for all involved.."

Mission and Vision

Mission and Vision

Our Mission

The mission of HFN is to continue what we started in 2007, providing children with care shelter and education. Orphaned children are special cases but our only concern. Our mission is to continue to help children in poverty stricken communities that cannot afford education. Our goal is to continue to build a network where volunteers can continue to give back in any way they can; from coming to the orphanage to going to farms to learn about farming practices and Nepali culture. Helping us provide many children with all the tools they need, from schools tools, intellectual tools and well as spiritual tools.

Our Vision

Our vision is quite grand but there is no doubt that with everyone's help we can bring it into fruition! Our vision is to build a better, HFN owned, living complex in order to provide for more children of Nepal. We are currently renting but by owning, it will create better stability for the children to thrive in. This will not only expand our help provided to orphans but also help provide for community children. The new facilities will also allot more comfortable living quarters for volunteers who come and stay with the HFN family!
