  • Description

    Description

    We are a government recognized school at Dang, Nepal. It is running from nursery to 12th grade that is to say from 3 to 18 age group children. It is a mixed gender school. It is located at the western part of Nepal. This part is full of ethnic diversity with diverse culture people, diverse biodiversity and land topography. The school is situated in the heart of Ghorahi sub-metropolitan city in Dang district. It was established in 1998 AD. It has more than 2000 students at present. Currently the school is planning to integrate international dimension in the school curriculum and collaborate with international partners in order to achieve the UN's sustainable development goals of education. However we have a problem of good commanding English language professionals who could handle the classroom and community based projects on environment and cultural exchange.
    The climate of this place is mild through out the year but more cold in Nov., Dec. & Jan. Dang is a valley surrounded by high mountains with ever green flora fauna. The main occupation of local people is agriculture and animal farming. It is rich in cultural heritages and natural beauties where a volunteer can go, research, experience and involve in community local festivals and cultural activities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    A volunteer can get a lot of benefits helping us, for example they can visit local community where they can interact with diverse cultural people, they can enjoy typical local food, they go for trekking near by mountains, they can go Annapurna circuit ( Himalayan base camp) trekking since it is near by the district, they can visit locally available cultural sites, they can visit near by rivers for swimming, lake for boating, they can visit hilly villages to explore more about Nepalese traditional life styles.
    A volunteer can manage his/her weekend or school off hours to any local sites and the school can provide a guide for local activities. If the school has longer holidays during a volunteer's stay s/he can plan for a longer journey to visit Rara lake at higher altitude in the western part of Nepal, National parks viz. Bardiya National Park, Khaptad National park etc.
