Teach Nepali students
Considered by many to be the most beautiful country in the world, Nepal holds several of the highest peaks in the world. The Himalayas hold serene sights that, to correctly imagine, you must visit to comprehend its beauty. Living within the hills and mountains are some of the most genuine people that you can encounter. They are always smiling, happy and eager to learn. The school children sometimes trek for 2 hours a day, often times they must trek uphill both ways and in the snow or cold rain, so they can obtain the education that they need to survive in their world.
To be successful in our rapidly globalizing world, they will need more knowledge than what was passed on by only their elders, they need you!
They need a more well-rounded outlook on the world if they want to expand their horizons beyond the beautiful backyard that they have grown up in. The answer is a Western teacher with a vibrant outlook on life that can teach a few English, computer or math classes. Any medium that would go beyond just the Nepali requirements will allow them to grow beyond their what opportunities their parents had.
What these students need is a person who has the maturity and enthusiasm to live in and immerse themselves in a family’s home for the stay. A teacher who cannot only teach them new skills or game, but will assist them with the talents they already do have. Most importantly, the children will expect this teacher to become a role model that can motivate them to become the best person they can be.
You can be that teacher!
