What is involved
Your volunteering program will be between 2 and 12 weeks in total and you will be based in Kathmandu, living with a host family. Our host families have all been carefully selected so every volunteer will get the opportunity to get to know the local people and fully immerse themselves into Nepalese culture; we find that placing teachers with host families allows for the most authentic travel and you will definitely be well looked after. The families we work with are extremely hospitable and welcoming, and they will treat you as a member of their own family. Main meals will be included during your stay so you will have the chance to taste real Nepalese cooking and you will have plenty of time during evenings and weekend to go exploring or sightseeing in and around Kathmandu.
Your teaching experience will require you to teach English and Maths to students aged between 6 years and 13 years in local schools and in local community centers. Volunteers must also have some flexibility and have the desire to help out in other areas too, as every school is different and will have its own needs. You may work with students in other subjects such as sports, art or music. And there may be some extra-curricular or after school activities involved.
Resources are limited and you will have to plan your lessons. Basic school books and local teachers and our local teams are there to guide you. You will be assisting local teachers or taking your own class. During holidays you will be working in community centres conducting session for primary school children.
