Travel to Pokhara, the second largest Nepali city and next to beautiful lakes and incredible mountains. Education is considered very important in Nepal and children are keen to learn. Head to 2 local village schools to help teach small groups of children English. During the lunch break, you can also help with extracurricular clubs, play board games or coach sport.
When? You can volunteer here throughout the year for 4– 12 weeks.
What’s it all about? You will be teaching children aged 8-12, but there will be plenty of opportunities to work with younger children as well. You will volunteer at the school until 3:15pm and then you will have plenty of time in the evenings to plan, explore and relax. You will have a teaching mentor, training and regular meet ups with your volunteer coordinator to help you get the most out of the experience.
How much does it cost? 4 weeks costs £1395 Additional weeks cost £155 per week.
Accommodation is provided throughout your project. You will live in shared accommodation with other volunteers and the volunteer coordinator. There can be up to 12 people in a house. On the top floor of the house lives the host family, who will cook traditional Nepali food each day. The house is comfortable, social and has plenty of communal areas.
