Living and working in rural Nepal gives an opportunity to make a real difference to the education of local children. Education in rural areas is still and foremost takes the form of rote learning. As many rural areas are underdeveloped, lack of transportation and the main migration in the city like Kathmandu and Pokhara, the rural villages are suffering lack of young and educated generation and moving backward in education system and development.
The rural school lacks learning through playing or learning through doing something else, no education activities are applied, no stage of practicing or producing anything with the knowledge acquired. In a School, the students all come from farming communities in the surrounding countryside.
You don’t have to be a doctor or engineer, neither any professional to join for rural teaching volunteering program, your skills and interest of own areas should help to develop our children. Volunteers are expected to teach English but they can also incorporate other subjects according to their own areas of interest like sports, music, drama, painting, health etc.
