Nepal       2 - 5 months

One or two volunteers can be placed in a school at a time. Saturday is holiday and Friday is half holiday in Nepal. Nepalese schools start at 10:00 am and close at 4:00 pm. The volunteers will be teaching 3 to 5 classes a day. Each class is 45 minutes long.

The volunteers will get an opportunity to participate in a 3 days orientation seminar at our training center in Kathmandu. The seminar aims to provide volunteers with basic knowledge about the education system of Nepal, detailed information about the project school, Do and Don’t issues, Nepali language, culture, dress, food, etc. The orientation seminar will start on the first Monday of each month.

Special requirements: Relevant training and skills are appreciated. Good motivation, flexibility and cooperative spirit are expected.

Language: English

Accommodation: Most of the long term volunteers will stay with Nepali families near to the school. Staying with a Nepali family is very interesting - you will be welcomed as a member of the family and as a member of the local community as well. Nepali houses are simple, using very basic facilities. Most families do not have a hot shower, but most of them have bathroom and toilet. Please, do not expect facilities like in your country! However, volunteers will get their own single room and enough Nepali food Dalbhat. There is a two time food system in Nepal: heavy breakfast around 9am and dinner around 7pm. Tea is very common - when you visit a family, they will welcome you by serving tea!
