About the project
Home to Mount Everest and a thriving trekking industry, many travelers fall in love with the amazing Nepali landscape. There is vital work for volunteers to get involved in, contributing to the education of young people in the community. The schools we work with are in rural areas and volunteers help local children, in small groups and 1-1, to improve their English, alongside other subjects. Assistance with the classes is hugely helpful, as volunteers boost the education the children receive, creating resources and supporting the teaching staff.
As a volunteer teacher, you can expect to be working from 8:15am to 3:30pm. When teaching English in Nepal, the task for volunteers is to get the children to start thinking in English and use their imagination. Volunteers teach 2-4 hours each day, using the rest of the time for planning.
Setting up after school clubs is also an important part of your time as a volunteer. We encourage you to bring your passions, whether they are in sport, drama, art or music. The kids always love learning something new.
Living in Nepal
You’ll be living with a Nepali family, which gives you the best possible chance of cultural immersion. Volunteers share dormitories on the bottom three floors of the host house, and the family lives on the top floor. You’ll gain a real insight into the culture, cuisine and language. Home cooked meals will introduce you to delicious Nepali traditional foods, while spending time with the host family may help you to learn some of the language. When you return home, you will find that Nepal has become your home away from home!
