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 kindergarten 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 in an informal way. As the kids are young, they love anything that gets them up and moving, so you could teach through physical games, interactive classroom activities or singing!

Volunteers support the local kindy teachers in the classroom with daily lesson planning and activities. You will be teaching the kids basic English, alphabets, numbers, rhymes, names of various objects etc. You can also create lessons and creative ways to interact and teach kids. The majority of the kids come from underprivileged families, so your help on this project can really inspire them and provide opportunities they may not have had otherwise.

Location
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.
