About Us Introduction

Registered in 1998 with the government in Nepal and social welfare council, Rural Community Development Program – Nepal (RCDP-Nepal) is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious volunteer organization. Since its inception, RCDP has been running outstanding community based volunteer programs in Nepal by carrying out many schools and orphanages based volunteer projects that benefits orphans, poor children and backward communities.

It was started in Colorado, USA in 1998

In 1998, the founder of RCDP- Nepal was a young graduate student in the United States. In the beautiful mountain city of Boulder, Colorado, he met Troy Peden (owner and founder of www.GoAbroad.com). Inspired by Mr. Peden's vision of volunteering abroad, RCDP-Nepal opened it's operation in Kathmandu, Nepal. Back then, the concept of volunteering in Nepal and India wasn't even heard of in Nepal. Therefore, we feel proud to be a pioneering volunteer organization starting volunteer program in Nepal and India.

A wonderful success story – a recognized leader in volunteer abroad Nepal

Within a year of its birth, nearly 100 enthusiastic volunteers from different part of the world joined RCDP-Nepal program. In the first year, we understood the importance of organized program, dedicated service, meaningful projects, and safety issues. Learning from the experience of working with many volunteers, we reorganized our program, added language and cultural immersion program, and started Himalayan program. Our hard work and cooperation with volunteers helped us to grow as a leading organization. Presently, RCDP-Nepal is a most recognized and respected organization in the field of volunteer travel in Nepal. Even though international and local volunteer organizations have mushroomed in Nepal, we still offer the best priced and high quality program in Nepal.
