Description

This wonderful project was created with the goal of helping to improve the education of some of the poorest children in the world. Located close to one of Kathmandu's largest slum areas, near Bhaktapur, this volunteer program is based in a severely under resourced school that provides free education, text books, uniforms and shoes to more than 150 children who live in poverty within the confines of the slum, and whose parents would otherwise not have been able to send their children to school at all. Volunteers are desperately needed to work alongside local teachers (many of whom are also volunteers) to assist in teaching vital subjects that include English, mathematics, science, history, geography. Volunteer teachers have a huge impact on the student’s English language skills. An ability to speak English is hugely beneficial to youth, allowing them to pursue further education opportunities and to seek employment where English is an advantage, such as the tourism sector, which is a major market for Nepal. Volunteer teachers help many low income children learn a tool that is vital to their future success. Volunteering on this project will truly make a difference to the lives of children facing a bleak future. 


Goals of this Project:

  • Provide free lessons to children and youth and help them improve their English language skills
  • Expose non-English speakers to native English speakers in order to improve pronunciation and conversational skills

This project best suits those with experience and/or qualifications in the field of childhood development and education, though volunteers who simply wish to explore an interest in this field are also welcomed as there are many ways you can assist in the classroom. Whist not mandatory, completing a TEFL course prior to joining this project would prove to be highly beneficial. Ideally, volunteers on this project will have at least a basic knowledge of the local language in order to communicate effectively with staff and students, though this is not a pre-requisite. Importantly, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
