Women Empowerment Project
This gap year volunteer project in Nepal is specially designed for women who have come to Kathmandu from rural areas to work as housemaids. Most of these female workers do not have a basic education and find it difficult to survive, particularly now, when education has become a fundamental aspect for survival.
Chetana Mahila Secondary School was established in order to educate and give confidence to these women in Kathmandu. The main aim of this school is to encourage the women to make the most of their own talents and skills.
You will teach and educate adult women with different learning capacities. You can use the course book as reference or educate them through conversational and spoken English. During your time here you can teach different subjects such as mathematics, science, geography, computer, technologies or music. You can also teach conversational English, personal development, environment awareness, general health and safety etc.
All higher education in Nepal is in English, so it is vitally important that they learn this language. A trained teacher is committed to raising standards in schools in Nepal, and with an adult literacy rate of 67% there is plenty of room for improvement.
Monday to Friday
You will be giving four to five lessons in a week during this gap year volunteer programme in Nepal. The schools usually have a curriculum, but out-of-the-box activities and creative experiences such as sports or games are more than welcome and really appreciated by the students as well as the staff.

Although Nepal is small, it has the greatest latitudinal variation of any country. The land rises from the southern plains of the Terai, barely above sea level at 70 meters, to the top of the Mt. Everest, the highest peak on Earth at 8848 meters above sea level, in a distance of less than 200 km.
