Nepal is one of the under-developed countries in the world. A large number of the populations live below the poverty line and there is high unemployment level due political unrest, favorism and lack of opportunities. Nepal is rich in geography, art, culture and religions. Nepal covers 8 of the world's top 10 highest peaks and among which Mount Everest is the highest. Nepal is also known as Land of Lord Buddha. Lord Buddha originally Gautam Buddha who enlightened the world was born in Lumbini Nepal.
Tourism industry is one of the hopes for the nation which really can change the face of the country. English language play significant role in order to improve the industry as well as chances of building better future.
Please donating your time as a volunteer English teacher in Nepal is a great way to spend your gap year, career break or an extended holiday. You can gain invaluable work experience without any previous experience and you do not require a TEFL. Your English speaking abilities, energy and enthusiasm are all that is required to make a difference in schools where there is a lack of conversational English language-teaching.

The impact you have on your students will be obvious as they start to develop their language abilities, but you will also be part of a much larger network of volunteers, which is making a positive and ongoing contribution to the wider community.
English Teaching/Working with an Orphanage Nepal
Program Length - From 2 Weeks to 5 months
Salary : None

Program Description:

Our English teaching placements are based in and around the capital city of Kathmandu as well as rural area. The main resources you will have in your classroom are a blackboard and a piece of chalk. Despite this, the enthusiasm of the children and the appreciation of your colleagues are sure to make voluntary Teaching in Nepal a highly rewarding experience.
Structure of education system in Nepal:
Primary School: Grade Nursery – Five
Lower Secondary: Grade Six– Eight
Secondary: Grade Nine - Ten
Higher Secondary: Grade Eleven - Twelve

Volunteers can choose between teaching in primary schools, with children aged between about 4 and 9, or in lower secondary schools, with children aged between about 10 and 15, or in secondary schools, with children aged 13 to 18.

On average, a class has around 10-40 pupils, and a volunteer will normally be in charge of full class. Most of our Teaching placements require you to work up to four hours per day from Sunday to Friday.
Any volunteers who have experience working with children with learning difficulties will also be welcomed as we have recently begun working with a new school that encourages children from care homes to study alongside students from middle-class families. All income raised by a school trust is to be used to develop the school's facilities and to give scholarships to gifted students from poor rural villages.

We do place the volunteers in a local host family, and those volunteering on a teaching project are likely to find themselves living very close to the school they teach at, possibly even with a local teacher. Living in such a close-knit community will allow you to learn a great deal about typical Nepali life and culture and will greatly enhance your experience of the country. You will gradually feel like an integrated part of the local community, although you are sure to stand out from the crowd and may find yourself treated as something of a local celebrity!
Experiencing Teaching English in Nepal

The children will often have Basic English language skills but there is always lots of room for improvement. Your most important resource is yourself; your knowledge and your interests, so be sure to draw on them whenever possible. To do so will greatly enhance both your students' and your own experience.
Local teachers are often very capable at providing their students with a good structural knowledge of English - the grammar and the vocabulary - but, having had very little conversational English practice themselves, they often lack the confidence to get the children speaking English. Once you are able to break down this barrier, however, you are likely to find that students and teachers alike will be able to make rapid progress, as the knowledge they have stored in their brains is suddenly given an outlet!!!

Although your main role will be to teach English you may find that you also want to help out by coaching the football team or setting up an art club at lunchtimes. Your skills and abilities in other areas will make you even more popular within the school, and you should be sure to let us know about them on application, so we can match you to the most suitable placement.
