Teaching English in Nepal

Teaching English as a volunteer will give you the opportunity to teach students who are eager to learn and improve their abilities in English. The students will also benefit from cultural exchange and different teaching techniques. You will be placed in either a public (government) or private school, depending on the area you wish to work. Your main role will be to teach English, however you may have the opportunity to assist in other school activities such as sports and extra curricular projects.

Generally as a volunteer you will be teaching for 4 to 6hours per day, 6 days a week, to students aged between 6 and 13 years old. There will be a permanent English teacher at the school to assist you with teaching methods, offer advice on dealing with communication barriers and provide you with suitable curriculum for the classroom. As a volunteer English teacher you do not need to be native in English but you do need to have good knowledge of the language. If you are volunteering during school holidays or exam periods Alliance Nepal will find alternative activities for you to participate in such as working in an orphanage. 
Teaching English to Buddhist Monks
There are more than 130 000 Tibetans living in exile in India, Nepal and Bhutan; 20% of which reside in Nepal. Tibetans continue to face many problems whilst in exile; education being one of them. A number of primary education schools known as ‘Tibetan Children’s Villages’ have been established by the Tibetan community in Nepal. These schools support religious Tibetan practices and provide education in Buddhist philosophies alongside other activities such as English and computer skills.

As a volunteer you will be teaching English to young Buddhist Monks and working towards enhancing their education. Alongside English you can organize games, painting and other creative activities. During this placement you will also get the fantastic opportunity to witness and participate in traditional Buddhist rituals.   More >>

Work  For  Orphanage
Every year hundreds of children become destitute in Nepal’s crowded cities after leaving their villages in search of work or from a loss or change in family situations. These children are deprived of education and a number of them end up working as child laborers in factories, restaurants or hotels, with others turning to drugs whilst living on the streets.

It is thanks to a number of orphanages that some of these children begin to get the love, attention, care and education they need. As a volunteer in an orphanage you will be there to continue providing this by assisting the children in learning English and other subjects such as math and science and helping the children with their homework. You can also organize tours, games, painting, singing and dancing and other activities to enhance the enjoyment and development of the children living in the orphanages.  Volunteering in an orphanage will be an experience that you will never forget and one that will open your eyes to just some of the problems facing children in Nepal.
