Last year, two University of Guelph employees traveled to Nepal on Leave for Change volunteer assignments related to farming. Agriculture in Nepal has long been based on subsistence farming, particularly in the hilly regions where families derive their living from the land. Over 80% of Nepalis are involved in agriculture and dairy farming makes up 12% of the gross domestic product.
