Volunteers join the team in Nepal to help support children in the beautiful Himalayan city of Pokhara. Sports Coaching volunteers will assist at the local government schools and children’s homes passing on their knowledge and skills to the children in a variety of different ways. Volunteers could be involved in:
Volunteers can coach football, basketball, volleyball, cricket, rounders, netball or other sports.
The children love to learn new sports and games so volunteers are welcome to coach any other sports they have an interest in. Volunteers are not required to have professional sports qualifications, just lots of enthusiasm and a passion for sport!
During your first week you will receive an introduction to the Nepali language.
Since 2007, the team in Nepal have been supporting Child Care Centres, Schools, the Street Children’s Centre and Children Homes by providing volunteers and financial support through our Charity.
The children’s centres and schools are underfunded and understaffed so are not able to provide regular sports sessions for the children without the assistance of the team in Nepal.
Teaching sport in Nepal has a wide range of benefits including improving the health, fitness and wellbeing of the children. Sport coaching helps to encourage teamwork and team spirit, improve concentration and increase the confidence of the children.
Sports coaching volunteers are needed as sport is not part of the normal curriculum in Nepal. Volunteers are vital in providing these expertise. Running sports sessions and delivering training to the students, teaches them the importance of health and fitness that will set them on the right track for the future.
Volunteers are able to share their ideas and skills with the current teachers who can pass on their knowledge to pupils and other teachers.
The interaction with volunteers naturally improves the children’s English
