Volunteers do not need to be a qualiﬁed or experienced teacher but must have a strong command of the English language. The only skills required for volunteering for this programme are a willingness to learn and an open mind. The main resources you will have in your classroom are a blackboard and a piece of chalk. Despite this, the enthusiasm of the children and the appreciation of your colleagues are sure to make the voluntary teaching in Nepal a highly rewarding experience.
No matter what you believe your skill level to be you have something to oﬀer. Volunteers assist with creating low-cost teaching materials, organising extra-‐curricular activities and promoting a more participatory approach to teaching.
