Be a candle to drive away darkness and keep in mind that light is necessary where there is darkness.
In Nepal we have two types of education system, the private schools where the medium of teaching is English and governmental school where few subjects are taught in English and rest in Nepali medium. The governmental schools are handled with very less resources and the English Teaching volunteers are always in demand. Nepal As a touristic country has English second language and the young children in Nepal are trying to learn English language because it is international language in this global world for world trade, commerce and communication. Without knowledge of English language a person in this time not only remains incomplete but opportunities will be severely restricted too.
There are many schools and institutions that educate children, but they’re unaffordable to those who need them most. Our volunteers in teaching English projects will work in schools attended by students of low-income families in rural villages. You will teach students eager to learn. You’ll converse with them to improve their pronunciation, teach English according to official curriculum, or use your own material or creative ideas in a different but fun way. This is also a good opportunity to gain teaching experience, serve those who need and appreciate you, and to help build your own career.
