**Please note- this program has been postponed due to the earthquake on April 25, 2015. All efforts have been moved to provide Recovery and Rebuilding opportunites. For more information, please visit GVN's website: www.globalvolunteernetwork.org/nepal/
If you have a good command of written and spoken English, plenty of initiative, determination, motivation and patience then you can be instrumental in teaching to those keen to learn.
The Global Volunteer Network has opportunities in our Teaching program, where you have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of boys and girls by empowering them with education so they have the skills needed to overcome poverty and advance towards the same opportunities as their peers around the world.
The benefits of volunteering extend to you - the volunteer, and to the Nepalese community and project where you serve. Personal benefits include development of life skills, personal growth, friendship, increased self confidence, social awareness, and building independence. An international volunteer experience will also enhance career prospects.
When you volunteer with GVN, you can be assured you are helping a local grassroots organisation. Volunteer efforts directly benefit local groups, local communities, and local people. We work with our partner organization in Nepal to support them in achieving their goals and ensuring that their projects are sustainable and effective.
What to Expect?
Within Nepal, it is becoming much more of a requirement for job placement, educational advancement, and future success to have English skills and a good, overall education. If you have a good command of written and spoken English, plenty of initiative, determination, motivation and patience then you can be instrumental in teaching to those keen to learn (you don’t need any formal teaching qualifications for this program).
You could be teaching community members, kids in children’s homes and/or in a classroom. Teaching / education volunteers must commit to a minimum 6 week programme, although the longer you are able to give the greater the impact you will have and the more your students will benefit. For placements outside of the Kathmandu Valley, priority will be given to those with the longest placement commitment.
