  • Description

    Description

    I am currently involved in coordinating international volunteers at government and private schools. At present we are having international collaborative projects for our students in which they need to incorporate UN SDGs ( agenda 2030) & cultural exchange with volunteers. I specially like to collaborate and host those volunteers who have a passion for teaching and working with kids embedding sustainable learning with current methodology and technology in teaching/learning. Moreover, help our students to carryout classroom-based collaborative projects with international partner schools and build up strong international relations with partner schools developing the skills of global citizenship along with SDGs. The schools are running from nursery to grade 12. These are mixed gender schools situated in the beautiful Dang valley at Ghorahi with mild climate through out the year. We have embedded project based teaching learning integrating international dimension in the curricula and wish to work with such volunteers who encourage and help our students improve their English language learning & cultural exchange with mutual respect.
