Teach English to children who are very enthusiastic to learn from international volunteers while immersing in Nepalese culture and widening your perspective on the world.

The pressure to learn English in Nepal for young children is enormous. It’s not only the second language of Nepal, it’s also the language used in trade, commerce and communications. Without the knowledge of English, the chances of securing a good job are severely restricted.

The schools and institutions that educate children in English with qualified and experienced teachers are mostly expensive and unaffordable to the poor. Our volunteers in teaching English project in Nepal will work in schools attended by students of poor families. You will teach students who are eager to learn from volunteers like you. You will converse with them to improve their speech, teach English according to official curriculum and use your own material or creative ideas to teach English in a different but fun way.

Join now and contact us for details. This is also a perfect opportunity to gain teaching experience in a fascinating country, serve the poor and build your own career.

Your activities as a Volunteer:

As a volunteer in Teaching English project, you will work to teach conversational English to children in public or private schools. The working hours may be from 2-3 hours per day and the children will be the age of 6 and 13. You will be working alongside a primary teacher and teaching from a fixed English curriculum. You can also work as a teacher’s assistant or lead English lessons.

You are welcome to teach other subjects like math, science and physical education if you want. You can also assist students with their homework. During the experience, volunteers can take up the responsibility of teaching the children life skills and chores, gardening, painting, art dance and music; spend time with them in various extra activities like sports and games too.

Many volunteers also become actively involved in fundraising. You can also help the administration and be part of cleaning campaigns. 

Project skills required:

No specific skills and qualifications are required to volunteer in the project. However, you must be at least 18 years of old. Volunteers should also be flexible, practical, self-motivated and open-minded to learn new culture.

Project Location:


Kathmandu: Kathmandu is the capital and the largest city in Nepal. The city is known for pagoda style temples dotted around the city and the half a dozen ancient historical places and World Heritage Sites. During your free time, volunteers can do many things in Kathmandu like visiting Buddhist temples of Swayumbhunath and Bouddha or Pashupatinath, one of the holiest Hindu shrines. There are also many fine restaurants and bars in Kathmandu and you can also visit mountain top retreat of Nagarkot for a one night sojourn. One a clear day, sunrise from Nagarkot has been described as spectacular and you can also see clear views of Langtang Himalayan range.   

Chitwan: Chitwan lies about 4-5 hours drive from Kathmandu. Chitwan is a regional hub that connects the flat region of Nepal with the hilly region. While the main town itself lies in the flat region, you can see the hills start from the Chitwan. Volunteers to Chitwan can enjoy traditional Nepali hospitality. During your free time, you can visit Chitwan National Park, one of the best parks to see Bengal Tiger, one-horned Rhine and ride on the back of the elephants. The Park also attracts plenty of birdwatchers.  

Pokhara: Pokhara is a beautiful, small valley that is a starting point of many treks to the Annapurna region. From Pokhara itself, you can see breathtaking views of Maccha Puchure (Fish Tail Mountain) and Annapurna range. The town has many lakes and the lake side area of Lake Phewa has many fine restaurants and hotels. Other activities you can do while in Pokhara are paragliding, canoeing, boating and visits to spectacular mountain tops sights where you can see great views of the Valley and the snow capped mountains.
