Volunteers Initiative Nepal (VIN) established Teaching Computer Science in recognition of Information Technology as an essential source of information and efficient means of communication. If marginalised communities can learn some basic Information Technology (IT) skills, they can connect with the rest of the country and even the world.

Nepal’s people are inexperienced in Computer Science.  The majority of public and community schools do not have access to computers.  In those few schools that have IT centres they are often resourced from obsolete computer systems and software and the teachers unqualified and untrained.

VIN’s overall objective is the empowerment of marginalised rural communities.  We have been working with Jitpur Phedi community since 2007 and have begun work with a new community, Okhaldunga.  Education is one of the cornerstones of our work.  IT is now an essential tool for producing and obtaining information and staying connected to the world.  For the long-term success and empowerment of a community basic Computer Science knowledge is critical.

Volunteers will teach IT skills to students in community schools.  The students will be between 9 and 15 years old.  Each class will be 45 minutes long and you will teach three to four classes a day.  Experienced volunteers will be invited to share your knowledge with the teachers.

Nepali community schools can be unpredictable.  It is not uncommon for them to be closed due to holidays, exams and other circumstances, e.g strikes.  During these times volunteers can teach in the community, focusing on youth and women.  You may also work at the VIN offices, sharing your IT skills with our staff and working with our web team.  Any hardware expertise you can offer is also welcomed.

During your volunteer placement you will live in the community with a Nepali host family, offering you the chance to become immersed in Nepali culture and language.
