ECOPRISE is a for-profit social enterprise. We simultaneously fulfill public duties and develop commercial market activities. Our goal is to generate economic, environmental and social impact through products and services that are sustainability-focused. Our work is mostly focused on renewable technologies and sustainable products. ECOPRISE operates across Nepal with its headquarters based in Lazimpat, Kathmandu.
We are a young team who work hard, support each other and enjoy companionship. We are passionate about the ECOPRISE’s cause. We work in a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) model.

  2. Start Date: Mid-August / September (depends on availability of fellow)
  3. Remuneration – There is going to be no salary, we can provide for simple food and accommodation in a rural setting. Transportation and “khaja” expenses will be covered in Kathmandu.
