  • Help


    Since March of 2015 we are looking for volunteers to help us in our Government schools and Schools for disabled people here in Bhaktapur! (It is a new project). The Government schools are completely public and totally free of charge for students and this is precisely the reason why they only assist the poorest people in the city. They always need and appreciate any help they can get, these are some ways you could help them:

    - You can help drawing nice paintings on the walls of the school
    - You can help by teaching English to the kids (their level is not really good)
    - You can help us creating a website or blog for the school.
    - There is no hardware equipment in the school so if you have any old computer and you can bring it here it would be perfect for the kids to acquaint them with computer science and technology
    - If you have any musical instrument you could show them it would be very useful for the kids to learn music from other cultures.

    The Government provides them with some course books and some simple clothes but they have no games and they only have very basic and rudimentary school material like pencils or reference books.
    You also can help for baby caring and
    farming too with local families
    If you could contribute in any degree they would be extremely grateful.

    About the food, we give you the opportunity for you to eat with my family and myself in a traditional way (on the floor and with the hands) but if you have any problem with that, we also have tables and silverware. We eat a small breakfast at 8am (usually tea and some bread) . The school provides a snack at 1pm approximately and then dinner is at 7pm at my house (dal bhat again).
