Himalaya Teaching Assistant

We are in need of volunteers who can help students by teaching them English vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation and speaking.


The program is situated in the village Gojra, Khaknal of tehsil Manali in Kullu district. The project is a community school that helps the local children to motivate, empower and educate through learning. The school is up-to middle class standard and serves around 200-400 students from age group 3 to 16 in mixed genders. The major problem of the school is that the teachers in the school are not well versed with English especially in pronunciation and grammar. So the result is bad on the students. Now they can understand a little bit of English and speak in a very wrong accent and pronunciation. We are in need of the volunteers who can help the students by teaching them English vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation and speaking. Some other tasks can be helping in evening classes for adolescent girls, adult education and women education as well.

The local staff and you will meet the beneficiaries with whom you are going to work. The local projects are real and they really need volunteering assistance and care.

Take group pictures, selfies and show your gratitude towards the staff and other volunteers for the cooperation, affection and support. You can celebrate and arrange a small party with the host family at the last day and spend some emotional moments. Meet all the friends you made during your stay, thank them and have your own time.
