Trek to Teach was a lifechanging experience for me. In my short three months in Nepal, I learned so much about myself, Nepali culture and was able to broaden my perspective on the world. I enjoyed exploring Kathmandu and taking in breathtaking views of the Himalayas while trekking on various trails in the Annapurna region. While teaching in a rural Nepali government school comes with its challenges, the work came with great reward. From my students to my host family and other community members in my village, I truly believe that Nepal is home to some of the nicest people in the world. I felt extremely welcomed in my village and felt that I was able to experience authentic Nepali life at the hands of the relationships that I was able to form. While I highly recommend this program to someone who is seeking adventure and the desire to positively impact the lives of some of the most deserving people in the world, it does take the right type of person. Having the ability to be flexible and to have little to no expectations is imperative for having a successful experience not only for yourself but for your future students as well.
