Nepal teaching volunteers

Help make a difference to underprivileged children in Nepal by teaching and assisting in a range of public and private local schools. You will get fully involved with all aspects, from planning lessons through to teaching your very own class! The enthusiasm and smiles of the staff and children will make you feel at home from day one.

As tourism is such a major industry in Nepal, being able to speak fluent English is now a must-have skill if you are wanting to get the higher paid jobs.

"Giving love and attention to all of the children and being able to assist the staff/teachers in their work fulfilled my days and made my trip. I immediately fell in love with this colourful vibrant country and its lovely people."

The Nepalese education system severely lacks investment and so is of an incredibly low standard. Around 41% of all adults in Nepal are completely illiterate, as teachers are often very under-qualified and children do not get the education that they need.

Most of the teaching projects are based in Kathmandu and are generally within walking distance or a short ride on public transport. You may also get the opportunity to volunteer at the local childcare centre, teaching English or helping the staff to take care of some of the mentally disabled children, who adore the volunteer visits.

Starting with the basics of the language, the children are very happy to learn short, simple sentences which help them to express themselves. The children also look to pick up the language naturally as you spend more time with them over your time as a volunteer.

Our English teaching volunteers usually teach for between 5-6 hours per day from Monday to Friday. With the children ranging from 5-15 years old, they are very eager to learn. These young pupils all have a real thirst for knowledge that helps to make your teaching experience as rewarding for you as it is for them. 

You will plan and teach fun and interactive lessons that develop the children’s confidence and conversational skills that will make a huge difference!

Volunteers for this project will need to have lots of enthusiasm for working with children. You also need to be fluent in English, whilst also being willing to learn more about the country of Nepal and the different styles of teaching there.

Volunteers are encouraged to be creative in their approach and where possible make use of games, songs, art, sport and music.

There is no availability to volunteer from mid-June/July/August, or mid-Dec/Jan as this programme follows the school term times.

You will have long weekends to go and explore stunning Kathmandu and it’s surrounds. Nepal is the land of a thousand temples and also has incredible trekking trails. Nepal offers culture, history, cuisine, shopping, religion and adventure, with popular destinations such as Chitwan National Park and Pokhara also available to see. It’s not a country to miss out on.
