What will I do as a volunteer in Nepal?

Volunteers teach beginner’s English and reading to our students, who range in age from 5 to 13. Typically, the children are most interested in hearing stories and learning different rhymes and songs.

Apart from English instruction, volunteers are welcome to lead other activities, such as arts and dance. Previous volunteers have come to Nepal with ideas for hands-on activities that make learning fun, like Apple Day and lessons about brushing teeth and cleaning up the community.

You should expect to be at school for 4 to 5 hours each day, 5 days a week. (School’s actually in session 6 days a week.) The rest of the day is yours. In the past, volunteers have enjoyed learning the routines of village life.
