In this program, volunteers are placed in public schools or in rural communities to teach conversational English and reading skills to children and adults. Volunteers can also teach other skills; for example working with the computer, hand crafting, drawing, painting, designing and sports. Volunteers can use the resources available in schools and communities or can arrange them themselves.
In Nepal, English is becoming more and more a required skill for obtaining a job, educational advancement and future success. You do not need to have formal teaching qualifications to teach English at a Nepali school, just a good command of written and spoken English, plenty of enthusiasm and a lot of patience.
1. Teaching English ( language Practise) :-Volunteers in the teaching English project mostly teach conversational English (2-3 hours a day) in a public school for six days a week. Most of the students in the school are between the age of 6 and 16. Volunteers will be assisted by other teachers in the school. In your free time, you can organize games, drawing, singing, dancing, and other creative education and extra curricular activities. Volunteers are also expected to help with taking the kids on educational tours, helping them with their homework, monitoring academic progress, and in administration. In Nepal, there is one English teacher in each school who follows a fixed English curriculum. Most of the time you will follow this fixed English curriculum (each grade has their own English book). You can work as a main teacher or as an assistant to the main English teacher, depending on your confidence level and teaching experience.
2. Teaching English in a community learning center
In Nepal, English is becoming more and more a required skill for getting a job, educational advancement and future success. The English language children learn in school is not sufficient when they cannot pay for an additional English language class. These children spend their time playing rather than studying, because their guardians can’t support their studies due to their own illiteracy.
The primary purpose of the project is to offer community children the opportunity to develop their English language knowledge, help them with their homework and provide a beneficial and positive way of spending their time (rather than taking up playing and gambling). As a volunteer, you have an important role in helping the community.
3. Working with orphanage:
As a volunteer in the orphanage project, you will teach English (2-3 hours a day) in school (when the kids go to schools during the day). You will help the kids stay clean by helping them brush their teeth, shower, and with their personal hygiene. In your free time, mostly in the evening, you can organize games, drawing, singing, dancing, and other creative education or extra curricular activities. In the evening time volunteers will help kids to do homework, monitor academic progress, and make sure kids complete the following day's homework. Your help is also expected with dressing kids, food distribution, kitchen help, gardening, cleaning and administrative work.
4. Volunteer work with Developmentally Disabled children
As a volunteer in the Developmental Disabilities program, you will work in a special school where you can teach and help the children. You will teach and play games, participate in and organize drawing, singing, dancing, and other creative education and extra curricular activities
5. Farming:- Organic Farming
Volunteers working in this project in Nepal will engage themselves in work on the farm of the host family or in a nursery that raises seedlings. The work includes: digging, preparing nursery beds, sowing seeds, weeding, trimming, and pruning, filling plastic bags, watering, and any work related to the nursery. Other tasks may include feeding and keeping cattle, collecting seeds and work with the host family to learn farming.
What else ...
We have been successfully working towards its goal of education improvement of the Rural Community and Schools. We hope to become the catalyst in the regeneration of health, education, social and cultural change in a number of surrounding villages in the Chitwan area. We are in collaboration with the National Park Buffer Zone user committee, including numerous government schools and community youth clubs.
Why does workaway.info allow listings of hosts who charge money?
In developing countries (Where most hosts are involved in charity work or community development) some of our hosts may ask for a small donation to help the host family or charity (often less then 5 dollars per day) Workaway will allow this listing when the donation goes directly to the family or charity and is just to cover the cost of the volunteer's stay. (This will be clearly marked on the host listing).
We will strictly not allow listings posted by agents, “middle men” or projects who we feel are looking to profit from a volunteers stay.
