Child Care Early Childhood Education

Program Fees Childcare Early Childhood Development

VIN believes that the protection and promotion of child rights and childhood development are vital to creating an empowered community. VIN has set up Child Care Early Childhood Education Centres in underprivileged, rural communities to give their children, aged 3 to 5 years, the start they need. We welcome volunteers and interns to work with us to support and develop the potential of these children.

Although the government of Nepal has on several occasions encouraged communities to set up Early Childhood Education Centres, due to the scattered nature of rural villages, institutions such as local schools become nearly inaccessible for many local people. As a result, most children spend their early years at home, without play material, acquiring no communicative or social skills.

VIN’s overall objective is the empowerment of marginalised communities.  We have been working with Jipur Phedi community since 2007 and have recently begun work with Okhaldunga, in the Everest region and will soon start at Okharpauwa, Nuwakot.

As part of VIN’s Chldren’s Development Program, we have set up fourty Early Childhood Education Centres and expanding more across three separate districts in Nepal. We support ten Early Childhood Education Centres around the Jitpurphedi community, outskirts of Kathmandu and more recently another thirty in the Okhaldungha community, Everest region. We have equipped all of them with games and facilities suitable for young children.  We have also subsidised and trained teachers to work in the centres, ensuring that their approach is joyful and creative to establish a positive learning environment.  Overall, the centres are designed to aid the development of the children’s motor, mental, emotional and social skills and give them the right start in education.

VIN seeks enthusiastic and flexible volunteers to help teach basic level English Language and Mathematics in our Early Childhood Education Centres.  As well as helping to prepare the children for basic, primary education, you will help the children develop good health and sanitation habits.

During your placement you will live in the community in a home-stay environment with a Nepali host family, where you will be immersed in the Nepali language and culture.
