On one hand you will have the chance to be a teacher and on the  other hand you will get the opportunity to have cultural study of Nepalis society,  their way of life and more. Be a candle to drive away darkness and keep in mind that light is necessary where there is darkness.

Education in Nepal
In Nepal we have two types of education system, the private schools where the medium of teaching is English and governmental school where few subjects are taught in English and rest in Nepali medium. The governmental schools are handled with very less resources and the English Teaching volunteers are always in demand. Nepal As a touristic country has English second language and the young children in Nepal are trying to learn the English language because it is the  international language in this global world for world trade, commerce and communication. Without knowledge of the English language a person in this time not only remains incomplete but opportunities will be severely restricted too.
There are many schools and institutions that educate children, but they’re not affordable to those who need them most.

Voluntary Work  
The Third Eye Foundation volunteers  in teaching English projects will work in schools attended by students of low-income families in rural villages. You will teach students eager to learn. You’ll converse with them to improve their pronunciation, teach English according to official curriculum, or use your own material or creative ideas in a different but funny way. This is also a good opportunity to gain teaching experience, serve those who need and appreciate you, and to help building your own career.

What we expect from our Volunteers
Prior experience in teaching English is desired but not required. You’ll need to have sound communication skills in English. Volunteers should also be flexible, self-motivated and have a strong willingness to learn and take new initiatives.

About the project

This program enriches your life experience by being a local like in nepal experiencing homestay, cultural exchange and other agriculture activities.

Meet your organization

Nepal is one of the most beautiful, culturally rich and welcoming countries in the world. It is home to Mount Everest, the birthplace of Buddha, and an astonishingly beautiful and diverse landscape, ranging from the well-known peaks of the Himalaya to the low-lying regions of the Terai. The Nepali people are as diverse at the geography, with over 70 languages or dialects and scores of traditional festivals celebrated throughout the year.

Volunteering in Nepal can be an extremely rewarding and life-changing experience. Your efforts can bring great changes in the lives of individual people and the wider community. This cannot be said enough. In the difficult times that Nepal is now facing, your contribution of time or resources is extremely valuable.

However, Nepal is also one of the most under-developed countries in the world, with low rates of literacy, high rates of poverty and a persistent gender imbalance. The government is frequently unable to provide adequate education and health facilities throughout the country and both urban and rural areas are forced to live without necessary resources to promote growth and development of their communities.
