English at community school

Program Fees teaching projects community scohol

VIN’s Teaching English at Community Schools project is an opportunity for volunteers or interns to take an active role in the Nepali classroom.  Our volunteers help to teach English in community schools and support the students to use their new skills.

The acquisition of the English Language is a vital skill for the Nepali people. It gives them a voice and offers them a chance to change their future.  Our teaching volunteers will work with the school’s existing English teacher who will provide classroom curricular and assistance with teaching methods and language barriers.  At the same time the volunteer will help the English teacher to develop their own language skills.

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 will be asked to teach in the community, helping those who are financially unable to attend school.

VIN has been working with Jitphur Phedi community since 2007, striving to empower the villagers – teachers, parents and schools – to enable children to receive an education, explore their creativity and develop for the future of the community.  The Children’s Development Program combines four major initiatives to achieve this; placing volunteers in our 11 partner schools is just one component of this work.

We do not ask that our volunteers be native English speakers.  We do ask that they are flexible, with a positive attitude and a willingness to learn.  During the placement you will teach two to three hours per day, six days a week.  Nepali government school age is between 6 and 16 years old and class sizes can range from 10 to 50 children.

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.
