In this program, volunteers teach different subjects such as English, Science, Maths, Social Science, Environment Science and so on depending on school curriculum (primarily English) at government school. Depending on the school, volunteers will either teach independently in class or with another Nepali helper teacher. Volunteers teach between two to four hours of 45-minute classes each period, six days a week (Saturday is holiday). Volunteers generally create programs to stimulate classroom lessons and improve students’ conversational English though different teaching methods.
