BIMAL – Director & Founder
Bimal is the Director and Founder of Himalayan Volunteers, our inspirational leader, prior to Himalayan Volunteers; BImal had traveled extensively and loved ‘giving back’ at home and abroad. As a result, he witnessed first-hand both the good and the bad of volunteering, and was determined to be part of an organization that was ‘different’… one who’s focus was on the communities, volunteers and partners. Bimal understands the requirements of meaningful and sustainable volunteer programs, and is passionate about ensuring Himalayan Volunteers operates in accordance with that original vision.
As Director of HV, Bimal oversees all aspects of the organization – a truly mammoth task in itself, yet he still relishes the direct contact he had with all of our amazing volunteers on a daily basis. He had personally assisted, guided, and supported volunteers carry out meaningful, life-changing projects.
