Education Program

The main objective of this wonderful program is to teach in a primary school located on the outskirts of Kathmandu. This school is located close to Bhaktapur, one of Kathmandu's largest slum areas and it  gives more than 150 slum children the unique possibility of having access to free education, text books, uniforms and shoes.

As many volunteers as possible are needed to work together with local teachers (many of whom are also volunteers) to help in teaching highly important subjects such as English, mathematics, science, history, or geography. Volunteers in Nepal are not just expected to teach in formal contexts. They can also organize creative activities that involve art, dance, music, and even sports.

As the demand for education is so high in this area, classes are overpopulated and classrooms usually lack the necessary equipment and resources. This is why the input of international volunteers is highly important to keep the school functional. Volunteers spend most of their time assisting in the following areas:

 

-Following the Nepalese curriculum and helping the teacher with the scheduled activities

-Teaching elementary classes to children, including English language

-Playing with the children in English

-Helping the children to attain a good level of hygiene

-Assisting the children in completing their projects

 

This volunteering experience is not only great for children to benefit from it, but also for local teachers, as they can also improve their English language skills and future prospects through interaction with English native speakers. If volunteers arrive in Nepal during school holidays, or there are holidays with the period of their stay, there will be different activities arranged for them in the country. They will be able to organize activities outside school, learn the Nepali language, or visit the main landmarks and locations of this great historical place.

 

Teaching and Childcare in Orphanages

Nepal’s high levels of poverty and low standards of living many cases result in children being abandoned, many of whom are on the streets, but some are placed in orphanages. However, these places lack the most essential resources.

This program to teach and take care of children in orphanages takes place in Pokhara, the second largest city in Nepal, which is 200km away from Kathmandu. Volunteers are required to assist in many tasks, such as helping with the cooking and cleaning, to giving educational and recreational activities to children (teaching English or other subjects, playing games, developing arts and crafts, etc.).

*As this program involves working with orphaned and at risk-children very closely, volunteers are required to participate for at least three weeks in this project.

 

School Renovation

This program takes place in a primary school on the outskirts of Kathmandu—a school created by our local partner. The main objective of this institution is to offer access to free education, books and clothing to more than 150 children. It is located near Bhaktapur, one of the largest slum areas in Kathmandu. The children who attend this school live in poverty and are very lucky to be able to receive education, as their parents would have not been able to afford it.

Unfortunately, the school is extremely ill-resourced and lacks space for its non-stop increasing number of students. Teaching materials are limited and all the money that is available is soon spent on the most basic needs. Keeping the general maintenance of the buildings and furniture is usually ignored, as there is not enough money to take care of that. This is why volunteers are needed here.

As part of this project as a volunteer you will be making a great donation, of not only money but also of your time to be able to fix a broken table, replace a door hinge, or paint a blackboard. It can be anything you think you can help with, and the local team will be very pleased to find some suitable task for you that will be safe, fun and helpful for the community!

 

Program Highlights:

 

-Spending time assisting children living in one of the poorest areas of Kathmandu

-Giving children some necessary tools to gain real job opportunities

-Meeting other volunteers from all around the world to share this experience with

-Support and advice from our team at the school at any moment

-Free weekends to travel and explore

-The thankfulness of the whole school authorities and community
