Teaching and Orphanage Care
Non-profitable volunteer organization establish by Nepalese youth volunteers, Works in education, environment, health and sanitation in different rural areas of Nepal. We enable volunteers to forge links with schoolchildren, youth groups and communities. We believe that this cultural exchange is invaluable for empowering our poor rural communities and for strengthening the bonds of understanding across the globe.
We will provide you with training to enable you to teach English in Nepal. The system of teaching is different here so you will be taught local teaching methods. The schoolchildren will be between 9 and 15 years of age and have a basic level of English. You will also be engaged to liaise with teachers of the school, to assist them with their teaching practice and conversational English, developing their skills for the future. You will have the chance to live with a Nepali family near the school. You will teach for about 3 to 4 hours each day, 6 days a week (Saturday is the day off). You will also be involved in an informal education program, teaching in community youth clubs or a women?s group for 1 to 2 hours a day.
We will provide you with the training to enable you to teach environmental education in a village school and in the village community. You will have the chance to live with a Nepali family near the school, and you will teach environmental education for about 2 to 3 hours a day, 6 days a week (Saturday is the day off). You will also be involved in sharing your ideas, skills and knowledge about environmental issues with local NGOs (non-governmental organizations), with youth clubs or women?s groups. You will set up groups within the school and groups of people within the local community to focus on environmental work while you are here and to maintain the work after you have gone. Your areas of expertise and the needs of the village community will define the environmental awareness projects you set up. Here are examples of some of the projects we have initiated: making a flower garden, planting trees, garbage management, paper recycling, making a smokeless stove, making a toilet pit using local materials.
Nepal is a land-locked country. 85% of its land is covered by mountains. Nepal is also the second richest country of the world for water resources. There is great potential for hydroelectricity but, due to the lack of financial support and lack of political consciousness, Nepal depends largely on wood fuel. Every year thousands and thousands of trees get cut down. Deforestation of the mountains is a major problem. It causes landslides and floods. Along with deforestation, high levels of water and air pollution are ruining our environment. Only through education can we begin to tackle these issues.
