SCHOOL EDUCATION PROGRAM

Would you like to help one disadvantage child, teacher or school improve their standards or even just speaking to them in English? Then consider being a Didi Aid Assistant.

Government schools in Nepal are sadly very under resourced and cannot compete with privately funded schools. Our mission is to support these schools with resources and skills to be able to give their students equal opportunities and a competitive edge.

With support from Didi Foundation Nepal you can contribute by:

  • Conducting teacher training sessions
  • Supporting teachers in the classroom
  • English language and technology support lessons
  • Contributing to school resources
  • Enhance technology in the schools
  • Working with after school homework clubs
  • Running after school art, craft and sport lessons
  • Assisting with much needed classes and resources to support students in their education.

Education is the key out of poverty and will assist in uniting a nation and the world.

SPECIAL NEEDS SCHOOL

You will love this place. Our most favourite place in the world but you will have to toughen-up as these kids will just fill your heart.

If you want to step out-side the square then come spend time in a mountainous rural community, working at both this boarding school and local government schools. There is so much to do here. We can cater for any skills, from sewing buttons on ripped uniforms to building green houses to establishing post education work placements for Year 12 graduating deaf students. (Please note that our outreach programs entail increased fees)

Your help is needed in any of the following

  • Teacher training  |  Hospitality training
  • Craft Lessons  |  Technology lessons
  • Children’s sewing lessons
  • Sport programs
  • Health and wellbeing education lessons
  • General Maintenance

You will really feel like you are making a difference in the lives of these children, teenagers and the local community
