Volunteer Teaching in Local Schools

Volunteer teaching with FDIP is an opportunity to the volunteers who want to improve learning and teaching environment in rural areas by their teaching skills. Whether you are in a vacation, gap year, education break or career break this project is suitable for you to make a travel experience for meaningful reason.

English is second language in Nepal and very essential for academic and professional growth, but students find very difficult to go through this subject. Hence Volunteer teaching project of FDIP is mainly started for teaching English, but depending on your interest and skills you can also participate to teach Mathematics, Science, Computer Basics and Arts.

Educational institutes in Nepal, mostly community and rural schools lack qualitative education system. Learning with the folks from developed country can turn out to be a great experience for the students of such schools. Students are very eager to learn and we believe that teachers from different places don’t only improve the process of learning but also provide variation and multiple dimensions to learning exercises.
