About the Program
Volunteers will help to improve the student’s pronunciation, assist in managing their homework, organize games and other activities in the learning center, and help to improve the children's listening and speaking skills. Hours can vary depending on the institution where the volunteer is placed and the hours that the volunteer wishes to work.
As a volunteer in center will give you the opportunity to teach and help students who are eager to learn and improve their abilities in English and other subjects. The students will also benefit from cultural exchange and different teaching techniques. Your main role will be to help for study, however you may have the opportunity to assist in other school activities such as sports and extra curricular projects.
At the center there will be around 10 to 20 kids to study and get support on their study through volunteers. All the families are very poor and could not arrange the extra tuition class for the children.They come to the center early in the morning and in thee evening. We provide the materials for the kids who comes to study and it is helping a lot for the students on their study.
All the parents are illiterate and could not support on their kids study at the home. volunteers can bring some story books with them and any school materials.
On our experiences volunteers are involving with the kids and there were enjoying with the kids. Mostly these placements are in the village around Pokhara.These centers are at the host families where are the volunteers are staying.
Depending upon the need, volunteers may be asked to assist in other extra curricular activities like sports. Your teaching focus will be:
