Volunteer to Teach in a rural school in Nepal
Important: No more volunteers are currently required for this opportunity.
Ever fancied teaching English in a small rural community, where a real teaching experience can be obtained and enjoyed. Here in Nepal we have a small village school that struggles to maintain and survive on the meager handouts from the Nepalese government. Being a government school most of the children come from the surrounding areas where farming is the main occupation. Hence Education is seen as a way to escape poverty and the hard farming existence that many fall into. And because Nepal is a country dependant on tourism the knowledge of English is vital to someone getting a job.
Description of duties at placement- Help alongside the teachers in a country school set up in the foothills of the Himalayas where you will get the opportunity to interact with the students bring smiles to all. As English is so important in this area you will find all students are very happy to engage you in conversation so you will be busy most of the time. Please feel free to read stories to the younger children and help in all ways. One thing we encourage is volunteers bringing their own ideas to the placements and all new ideas are always welcome.
