Team Leaders
Raleigh International Nepal

Today, more people than ever before are working together to create sustainable change around the world. Despite this, there is much more work to be done.

Raleigh International connects communities wanting to improve their lives and their environment with passionate people from around the world who want to take positive action.

We believe that when local communities and young people work side by side to create positive change, it empowers them. And it’s the energy and motivation of empowered people that creates lasting change

We’re a youth driven sustainable development charity, creating meaningful and long-lasting development impact. Our programmes focus on youth in civil society, livelihoods, natural resource management, and water, sanitation and hygiene.

Our way of working to achieve impact in all of these areas is by engaging young volunteers. We develop national youth led programmes and run the Raleigh Expedition for international volunteers.

We work in partnership with communities, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and governments and corporate partners in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Nepal and Tanzania. Since our foundation as a charity in 1984, Raleigh volunteers have become a global community of more than 45,000 people committed to building a sustainable future.
