I’ve been thinking about how it might be possible for a small Nepalese school to support itself. One way might be to have a rota of volunteer teachers coming from better-off countries, staying with local families, paying a small rent for their accommodation. They would bring their skills and a small boost to the local economy, which would mean that parents would be more willing, and could better afford, to send their children to the school. OK, the details need sorting out, but would volunteers come?
Would YOU volunteer-teach in Nepal for a month if you had to pay all your expenses?
Teach in a very-low-resource school, small class size, Elementary/Primary ages, mixed, poor.
Live with a local family.
Your flights, your travel, food, accommodation, inoculations, insurance… paid by you.
No pay but no fees or expected donations.
Volunteer-teach one month and then … go exploring, or relax and appreciate the culture, or research, or dream …
Please tell me – would YOU?
What would it take?
