This teaching English volunteer program enables you to explore Nepal as a local. In Nepali society teacher is regarded as everything and has high prestigious position.

English Teaching in Nepali Community Schools Program targets international volunteers who are looking to take part in a hands-on, Nepali classroom experience. In these local schools, you as a volunteer will not only teach the English language, but will also engage in an effort to teach the children how to apply those language skills in various extracurricular activities.
Teaching English project enables volunteers to gain teaching experience in public and private schools across Nepal. The country’s lack of financial and physical resources, as well as the mountainous geography, make good quality education difficult to access for many students. Volunteers provide an important opportunity for these students to hone their English skills by practicing with and learning from a fluent speaker. This can help improve their future job prospects and lead to eventual financial security.
In Nepal, each school has its own English teachers who may be available to assist volunteers with teaching methods, offer advice on solving communication barriers, or simply providing suitable curricula for the classroom. English teaching volunteers do not have to be native English speakers. During holidays and slow periods, volunteers can also help local teachers create teaching resources and design effective lessons plans, as well as co-teach certain lessons. This offers a new opportunity of learning and exchanging ideas on educational practice.
