Projects Abroad has spent over 25 years helping volunteers and interns fulfil their potential and make the world a better place. All projects seek to add significant value to the environment, to local people and the organisations they support.

Make a difference and support local teachers in the classroom at disadvantaged schools. You’ll help students improve their English, and gain confidence with speaking. This is a great way to add practical teaching experience to your CV, and give back at the same time.

Experience

Teaching English in Nepal, you'll be based in a primary school. You will work with local teachers, who will guide and assist you. You'll get involved in work such as:

  • Teach children English and make speaking lessons engaging and fun
  • Design resources to contribute towards a literacy-rich environment
  • Assist teachers with subjects like music, science, sport, art, life skills, and hygiene
  • Attend workshops about the education system in Nepal
