The program

This wonderful project was created with the goal of helping to improve the education of some of the poorest children in the world. Located close to one of Kathmandu's largest slum areas, near Bhaktapur, this volunteer program is based in a severely under resourced school that provides free education, text books, uniforms and shoes to more than 150 children who live in poverty within the confines of the slum, and whose parents would otherwise not have been able to send their children to school at all. Volunteers are desperately needed to work alongside local teachers (many of whom are also volunteers) to assist in teaching vital subjects that include English, mathematics, science, history, geography. Volunteer teachers have a huge impact on the student’s English language skills.  An ability to speak English is hugely beneficial to youth, allowing them to pursue further education opportunities and to seek employment where English is an advantage, such as the tourism sector, which is a major market for Nepal. Volunteer teachers help many low income children learn a tool that is vital to their future success. Volunteering on this project will truly make a difference to the lives of children facing a bleak future. 

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide free lessons to children and youth and help them improve their English language skills
  • Expose non-English speakers to native English speakers in order to improve pronunciation and conversational skills
  • Improve the future prospects of some of Nepal’s most impoverished people, and help them to break the poverty cycle
  • Expose volunteers and children to different people and cultures
How you can help

Through the help of international volunteers, some of the most marginalised children in poverty-stricken Nepal now have hope for a brighter future. Volunteers play an essential role in this school and in its student’s future success.  Without volunteers to offer their skills and time, there would simply not be enough teachers for these wonderful students. Volunteers in Nepal will not just teach academic subjects but also organize creative activities, such as art, dance and music, as well as lend their experience and enthusiasm to extra-curricular activities like sports games. Due to overwhelming demand for the opportunity to gain an education, classes have high numbers of students and classrooms, often crammed into any available space, generally lack adequate resources so the input of international volunteers is vital to keeping the school operational.  Volunteers gain wonderful teaching and life experience on this fantastic program, traveling to one of the most amazing places on earth.

Volunteers will contribute in a number of ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Helping the teacher with the planned classroom activities, following the standard Nepalese curriculum
  • Teaching basic subject matter to the children, including English lessons
  • Playing games and reading to the children in English
  • Teaching children good hygiene and life skills
  • Helping the children complete projects

Dagelijkse activiteiten

A volunteer’s work day on this project will generally last between 3 and 4 hours, following the 6 day Nepalese working week, Sunday to Friday. While we ask all volunteers to be flexible in this regard, a typical daily schedule is likely to go something like this:

8:30am Breakfast at the Volunteer House

9:30am Walk or bus to the project site

10:30am Pre-start meeting with the project supervisor (when required)

11:00am VOLUNTEERING DUTIES START

Lunch is taken at the school from 1:30pm - 2:00pm

4:00pm VOLUNTEERING DUTIES END

4:15pm De-brief with the project supervisor

4:30pm Walk or bus to the Volunteer House or run errands in town

6:30pm Dinner at the Volunteer House

Evening Free time to spend at the Volunteer House or running errands, checking emails, exploring Kathmandu.


Vrijetijdsactiviteiten

Volunteers on this program have the opportunity to experience Nepal's vibrant capital city. Kathmandu is described as the “Land of Gods” and home to the “largest congregations of magnificent historical monuments and shrines ever built”.  

The city is a juxtaposition of urban sensory overload (traffic, people, sounds, smells) and serene temples. With so much to see and do in the city itself and located on the foothills of the Himilayas this is an exciting destination for the international traveler.

Accomodatie

Volunteer House near to the town of Bhaktapur in Kathmandu. Rooms are dormitory style and may be shared depending on the number of volunteers.

Living conditions in Nepal are far from luxurious and part of the experience of volunteering in this location is getting back to basics! The Volunteer House has both electricity and running water but be prepared for power outages and cold water only. Heating and air-conditioning are not standard in Nepal.

Bedsheets and a pillow are provided so volunteers need only take a sleeping bag, personal toiletries and towel(s). Mosquito nets are readily and cheaply available locally and the local team will assist with purchasing one should it be required. When volunteering during Nepal’s winter months (particularly December, January and February) warm clothes and a heavy sleeping bag are recommended.  

Internet coverage is available at the Volunteer House and school but can be unreliable and it is recommended that volunteers purchase a local SIM card and data package on arrival in order to stay in touch with friends and family. The local team will assist with this.

Slaapzaal Guesthouse
Eten & Drank
Breakfast and dinner are provided at the Volunteer House daily and lunch can be prepared in the kitchen at the house or eaten out at any of the many affordable cafes near to the school. Easy!
Internet toegang
Beperkte toegang op de project site
Wat is er NIET inbegrepen?
Visum, vluchten, reisverzekering en vaccinaties zijn NIET inbegrepen in de programmakosten.
Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM) in Kathmandu. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar Nepal.
Reisverzekering
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Nepal biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Vaccinaties
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Nepal dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Nepal.
