Teach the children basic English including speaking, listening, reading and writing skills
Teach at small schools, assisting the local teacher! You will be able to be creative in your ideas, teaching children aged 5-16 years of age. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Most people in Nepal can’t afford to travel, and in the villages, there is sometimes barely any contact with the outside world. Foreign teachers can provide students the opportunity to form relationships and learn about different backgrounds and cultures. Local teachers can also learn new teaching methods and techniques.

Volunteers on this project will mainly assist the regular school teacher, so no teaching experience is required, just an enthusiasm to help out!

Not only is teaching English beneficial but your presence and guidance can also help the children become self-motivated and independent. You will mainly be teaching basic conversational English, and any other subjects you wish to teach. The children will be aged around 5 to 16 years and will have different levels of knowledge.

You will teach at small local schools and take part in extra-curricular activities to inspire them and broaden their perspectives, through creatively structured lessons.

You are welcome to use different methods to teach but can use the course book as a reference. If you wish, you can teach them other subjects such as mathematics, history, science, geography, computer, technologies, music, arts and crafts, personal development, environment awareness, general health and safety, etc.

All higher education in Nepal is in English, so it is vitally important that children learn English to continue further higher education. During the project, you will gain valuable experience and learn by observing the methods of the local teachers. The project can take place in either government, private or community schools around Pokhara.

Generally, you will be teaching four to five classes a day. The standard curriculum can often be a little ‘dull’ so any creative activities and games to get the kids in the mood for learning is much appreciated!

Pokhara, which is located 200km West of Kathmandu, is a popular tourist destination in Nepal and one of the main starting places for the stunning Annapurna trek. The surrounding areas have spectacular views of snow-capped mountains. Set amongst the foothills of the Himalayas, there is plenty for adventure lovers here, from white water rafting, bungee jumping, paragliding, some of the best trekking in the world, caves, museums, lakes and so much more!
