Volunteers participating in the Teaching program in Nepal will be conducting English classes at local Nepalese public or private schools, which are short of staff and are in need of regular volunteers. Tourism is one of the main industries in Nepal and a strong command over the English language can land a sophisticated and decent pay job. It is of a great benefit to working as a volunteer teaching in schools in Nepal, not just for the children from the underprivileged section but the volunteers as well. 

All that is required from the volunteers to execute this task is that they should have good English speaking abilities and lots of enthusiasm to work with children. Starting with the basics of the language, the kids would be delighted if they are able to learn simple, short sentences which enables them to understand English and express themselves in the same language.

Typical day

Volunteers joining the teaching program in Nepal will be accommodated with a host family or at a volunteer house. Both the arrangements are located close to the placement facility and are provided with meals. A typical schedule while volunteering in Nepal  goes like;

  • Sunday - Arrival in Kathmandu
  • Monday - Orientation session by the local coordinator covering topic areas; such
  • as safety, culture, language, places to visit, behavior, food, and more. This will be followed by a visit to the placement facility in the company of the local coordinator to get introduced to the placement and the Inmates.
  • Tuesday to Friday - Volunteer work
  • Breakfast - Volunteers will have breakfast at the volunteer house/with the host family
  • Volunteer at placement - 07:00 am to 12:30 pm
  • Lunch -  01:00 pm (will be provided at the accommodation)
  • Dinner - 07:00 pm
  • Weekends - Free to explore the city (Lunch is not provided on Fri/Sat/Sunday)

The same volunteer work schedule continues from the second week onwards
