From Peace Corps Wiki
The Peace Corps established a program in Nepal in 1962 and placed the first group of 100 Volunteers in education and agriculture assignments. To date, over 4,000 Peace Corps Volunteers have served in a wide variety of programs to assist the government of Nepal in delivering essential services to the Nepalese. The deteriorating security situation forced Peace Corps/Nepal to reduce its training input in Fiscal Year 2000 and again in Fiscal Year 2002.
The program in Nepal was officially suspended on September 13, 2004. The Peace Corps has had a successful 42-year program in Nepal, making great strides in the areas of small business development, education, environment, youth development and working on health and HIV/AIDS education and awareness.
