Teaching English/arts and crafts/social sciences/etc. to the underprivileged Nepalese at Nepal public schools. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+

Interns/Volunteers participating in TLC’s Program will teach various English language programs at our partner schools  Since English language is the most essential language today. Learning English helps develop our clients’ and students’ development whether scoring better in their exams or provide better employment prospects. 

Starting with basics of the language, the students or kids in our partner schools are delighted if they are able to learn simple, short sentences, which enable them to understand English and express themselves in the same language. Other than that volunteers according to their qualification and experience will be involved in teaching other subjects as well. Volunteers mainly assist the local staff or the staff of the schools and evolve new ways of teaching in a play-way method.

Other than that you can also introduce or involve yourself in extra/co curricular activities which most public schools lack. The children would enjoy these activities.

Volunteers are mostly placed in primary/secondary school placements in our partner schools, or at teaching high school students in grades 8, 9 & 10. .

 Note: - Volunteers do not need to be qualified teachers to join this program.

Typical day

After waking up in the morning and doing your morning chores and having a meal with the family you will be going to TLC's partner School and teaching the assigned class. The books will be provided y the school. In between there are a few breaks where you will interact with teachers and students. During the lunch break you can join the other staff or if your guest house is nearby you can go home and  have your meal. After the lunch break you will again go to your assigned classes. During free periods you can correct assignments or prepare for your lessons.

After the school is over you can participate or introduce extra curricular activities with the students which will be much appreciated. Once the school hours are over you will go home, refresh yourself, relax, go on a stroll or interact with the family members.  

People usually eat there dinner by 8 and by 10 PM most of them go to sleep for people in Nepal wake up really early especially in the rural areas.

During weekends in and around Kathmandu you can do plenty of things. TLC staff will help coordinate the activities and at a reasonable rate you can go for short hikes in the mountains, visit temples or world heritage sites,visit parks or go on a stroll to a very famous Thamel which is a tourist hub famous since the 1960s.
