Program Fees Teaching Sports

VIN has created the Sports volunteer project to make a difference in marginalised communities through sportsSports bring people together and through sports children learn important values while enjoying a positive impact on their health and growth.  If you can teach a sport you love, please take this opportunity to share it to help underprivileged children and communities.

VIN’s overall mission is the empowerment of marginalised communities.  We have been working with Jitphur Phedi community since 2007; striving to empower the villages to enable their children to receive an education, explore their creativity and develop for the future of the community. VIN believes part of that development can take place through sport. Benefit of sport is not only on physical well-being but also have strong influences on inclusion and community building, character-building and community safety.

Nepal’s public education system provides rudimentary education for those living in rural communities. Teachers are often untrained and unqualified and the most common teaching method takes the form of a lecture.  Sport is not recognised in Nepal as a means of learning and development.

VIN are looking for volunteers with firm experience in any sport to teach in community schools.  Football and cricket are now becoming established in Nepal, but volleyball and basketball are also becoming popular.  However, as a sport volunteer, you can teach the sport of your choice. You will work up to six hours a day, six days a week.  The children will be aged from 6 to 16 and what they lack in know-how, they will make up in enthusiasm.

There are times when the Nepali schools are closed; either for exams, festivals or something more unforeseen, such as a strike.  During these times volunteers can teach in the community, helping those who are financially unable to attend school.

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.
