Formally called Vidyanagar Nature Club, Voluntary Nature Conservancy (VNC) is a nonprofit charitable organization in Vallabh Vidyanagar, a town in Gujarat, India. Established in 1988, we are a versatile organization that operates actively at grassroots level to preserve Mother Nature. Our mission is to educate local communities and raise awareness on the vital need for environmental protection.
Since our inception, we have continuously evolved with changing needs. We create innovative ways to communicate with people regarding caring for the environment. Hence, we develop a range of activities within these areas: Awareness and Advocacy, Conservation and Research, and Environmental Education. Our programs are joined by international volunteers who travel to India alone, with a group, or with their families. Aside from helping us reach our goals, they have plenty of opportunities to experience authentic Indian way of life and to enjoy complete cultural immersion.
