See a totally different side of Nepal, working in schools to provide a better education for some of the region’s poorest children.

Many adventurers visit Nepal for the amazing scenery and brilliant trekking opportunities without ever knowing that many of the children in this area are among the poorest in the world. It is possible to volunteer in the area and work in schools to help provide a better education for some of the most vulnerable children.

The harsh reality of day to day life in the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal, is that many children are forced, out of financial necessity, to work in factories in the city or work as domestic labour. Some of them are orphaned, some come from poor families in the villages, but what they have in common is that they are faced with tough living conditions with little chance to play or to get an education. The School Leaving Certificate, an academic qualification which could be their ticket to a better life, is beyond reach for many of these children.

The Samata schools have been founded as a charity, set up by a local Nepali to give these deprived children a chance to gain these academic qualifications, whilst at the same time also give them the support and freedom to play and develop their social skills. Crucially, the schools also focus on teaching English to the students. Without English, they cannot sit their exams and are unlikely to be able to break out of the poverty cycle in which they find themselves.

The schools are run on a charitable basis and rely on volunteers and donations and a small fee for those parents who can afford it. On this project, volunteers are needed on the educational side. Helping the schools to develop their English teaching practices and also encouraging both teachers and students alike to improve their computer skills.

This is an amazing chance to help children in the poorest areas of the world to have a chance to escape the poverty they were born into.
