I really enjoyed interacting with the children in the orphanage. They were all so responsive despite of the language barrier and I really felt like I’m making a difference to them. I gained a lot of practical experience and also learnt different ways of communicating. I’m very well and thoroughly enjoying the program. I spent the first half of the placement in the orphanage, (6 weeks) and I shift to Teach English in the near by Government School. I thought Class 3, 5 & 6 at School, for 5.5 hours every day, Monday to Friday. This was really good fun, and very rewarding even though it takes a long time for the children to learn! The highlight of the placement is in the evening where I meet the local Nepalese woman, they thought me how to dress the Nepali custom “Saree” we Dance and Sing, and sometimes they interviewed me about what my country look like, my family, my culture back home. I really had a great time interacting with the villager even though there are several times we don’t understand each other. “This is so much more than just a trip. This is the beginning of what I want to do with the rest of my life!”
Thank you.

“My overall experience in Nepal was incredible. I really enjoyed my time at Madan High School where I taught for three months, it was a fantastic placement one that many volunteers have enjoyed. I really bonded with some of the classes I taught. Coming into a class and seeing big smiles and looks of excitement on the faces of all the children will be one of the everlasting memories that I will take with me from my time in Nepal. Teaching classes of children from the ages of 6 - 17 was at times challenging, but also very rewarding. I enjoyed the strange questions the pupils would ask and the compliments they would give you.”

As a volunteer teacher. I was placed to Jana Jyoti higher secondary school near, Bhaktapur it is 15 K.M. from Kathamandu. I was amazed at the trust and love the children shared with me after knowing me. The basic day was an early rise followed by exercise. The kids had great energy that needed to be utilized. I was able to just sit with the children and provide help with spelling, speech and writing. When the children were occupied elsewhere I would head into the office to do some paperwork. We would usually have a few games in the afternoon. Such as hide n seek, cycling, drawing and reading. The second time for the English teacher to come was at around half five. I can definitely see the progress they are making which will help them at school. My placement was too short for my liking and I am already planning my second trip in a few years time. My role as older brother and supervisor was demanding but also rewarding at the same time.”
