How it all started
In 2012 Sanju Shakya, moved by the poverty surrounding him in his own nation, and witnessing firsthand the heartbreak and hardship this caused, collaborated with the volunteers he met through his position as Volunteer Coordinator and established Club de Volunteer.
Sanju used the donations kindly given by volunteers, to support families that he found on the street that desperately need money to support their disabled children. Over the years, Club de Volunteer has grown and has been able to support many families and individuals, including orphanages that have no support from the government.
In September 2013, Maud van de Worp from The Netherlands visited Nepal to volunteer as a Music Therapist. Music therapy is the skillful use of music by an accredited music therapist to promote, maintain, and restore mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health to disabled children in a fun way Maud was touched by the warm and loving people of Nepal and felt inspired to team up with Sanju and Club De Volunteer, in order to make a difference to those who need it.
