Volunteer project: The volunteers will be teaching basic English in schools in different regions of Nepal: Kathmandu valley, Kaski (Pokhara), Tanhun, Lamjung, Chitwan, Makwanpur, Nawalparasi district. One or two volunteers can be placed in a school at a time. Saturday is holiday and Friday is half holiday in Nepal. Nepalese schools start at 10:00 am and close at 4:00 pm. The volunteers will be teaching 3 to 5 classes a day. Each class is 45 minutes long.
The volunteers will get an opportunity to participate in a 3 days orientation seminar at our training center in Kathmandu. The seminar aims to provide volunteers with basic knowledge about the education system of Nepal, detailed information about the project school, Do and Don't issues, Nepali language, culture, dress, food, etc. The orientation seminar will start on the first Monday of each month.
Special requirements: Relevant training and skills are appreciated. Good motivation, flexibility and cooperative spirit are expected.
Duration of the project: 2-5 months. The volunteer placements start on the first Monday of each month.
Accommodation: Most of the volunteers will stay with Nepali families near to the school. Staying with a Nepali family is very interesting - you will be welcomed as a member of the family and as a member of the local community as well.
Location: In or around the Kathmandu valley, Kaski (Pokhara), Tanhun, Lamjung, Chitwan, Makwanpur, Nawalparasi district of Nepal
