Volunteer Teachers Needed in Nepal for Rural Education in English and Computers

The Little School That's Teaching a Village
In the village of Mankhu, there is a small primary school. It's not very good and too many children drop out of school early. At Her Farm (see project #9523) we're working to keep kids in school by offering a before and after school program that helps with homework and teaches them English as well. We also started day-care and early childhood education so that women no longer have to take their children with them in the fields while they work. We educate, we feed the children good meals.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Expand your teaching skills and world view by volunteering in Nepal!  A wonderful opportunity to make a difference in the world.

All inclusive Volunteer Experiences in Nepal

All inclusive Volunteer Experiences in Nepal | Nepal - The Mountain Volunteer: Heal - Teach - Build | Scoop.it
Dear Volunteer. 

We've tried to make this easy for you and provided a way that you can book online, much the same way you'd make a hotel reservation or book a flight. Thank you for choosiing us to host you in Nepal. 

PRICING - the price includes total, twenty-four hour a day support from our staff, a clean room in a modern house in a secure location, breakfast and dinner daily, wi-fi, bedding, towels and unlimited friendliness. 

It couldn't be easier. Pick your dates, choose your program (which you can also change later) and click on "book now."   30 days prior to your start date you'll be sent an invoice to pay. There is no payment required to reserve a place unless you are booking less than one week before your start that. In that case, payment in full is required. 
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

This is an "all inclusive" volunteer experience. You work directly with the people of Nepal.  Room, Board, and a transformative experience await.

Her Farm, growing hope in the Himalayas


Her Farm was built to provide poor, landless and homeless women and their children a sustainable home and livelihood. Her Farm is grass-roots community development that impacts the entire rural village where the farm is located.  

Dennis T OConnor's insight:
What Can You Do?There is a lot of work to be done. 

The farm has a lot of land that needs to be put to use for organic farming. You can help directly and work on the land. You can work right along side our women farmers and grow the food that you, and they, will be eating. Farming is hard, but fully satisfying work and nothing tastes better than a meal prepared from the food you've grown yourself. You will be helping these women to provide a sustainable future for themselves and their children.

Young women are growing hope at Her Farm: Volunteer in Nepal

Young women are growing hope at Her Farm: Volunteer in Nepal | Nepal - The Mountain Volunteer: Heal - Teach - Build | Scoop.it

Scott MacLennan:


"When we started Her Farm we had a vision of women coming from abusive family situations and living at the farm where they could support themselves and their children.


That's still our mission and vision at the farm, however something else is taking place at the farm, something unexpected and wonderful. For the past two years as we've been working to get all the infrastructure in place to house and feed women and educate their children the farm has been managed by young women.


These young women have proven to themselves and to everyone else just how capable they are.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

You can volunteer in Nepal at Her Farm.  Come to Nepal to teach, build or heal.  Help empower Nepali women as they create a sustainable organic farm in Nepal.

Citizenship provisions discriminate against women in Nepal- The Himalayan Times

Citizenship provisions discriminate against women in Nepal- The Himalayan Times | Nepal - The Mountain Volunteer: Heal - Teach - Build | Scoop.it
With Nepal’s adoption of a new constitution, news has surfaced that in conferring citizenship by descent the requirement of both “father and mother to be Nepali” has been substituted by “father or mother”, meaning essentially that “and“ has been substituted by “or” by the drafters, perhaps in response to massive public pressure in the past few weeks. Now the question is whether “or” really applies equally to both Nepali men and Nepali women.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

The children of Nepali women are not given citizenship automatically. This is creating a stateless population in Nepal. The new Constitution does offer some hope. But discrimination against women remains commonplace.

Helping others be healthy is only one of the responsibilities Devi has taken on in her remote village, where she serves as a community health volunteer. She is 35 years old, and one of approximately 50,000 people trained in everything from sanitation and nutrition to modern hygiene.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

One of the mottos of the Mountain Fund is "Doing what works to give a hand up, not a handout." 


If you decide to Volunteer in Nepal, you can teach, build, or heal in a way that transforms your vision of the world, while helping the people of Nepal to take care of themselves.

Her Farm Films Empowers Women in Nepal to Change the Narrative

Her Farm Films Empowers Women in Nepal to Change the Narrative | Nepal - The Mountain Volunteer: Heal - Teach - Build | Scoop.it
The Mountain Volunteer, The Mountain Fund and Her Farm Films announced a new volunteer program in Nepal today. Her Farm Films is the name of our production branch at Mountain Fund. The mission of Her Farm Films is to provide the training and equipment needed for Nepali women to produce short films about life in Nepal for women.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

The narrative changes when you change the narrator.


Getting the voices of women heard is a crucial step in changing the conditions for women in Nepal. Ranked as one of the worst places on earth to be a woman, Nepal is a highly paternalistic society that affords little to no chance for women to get behind a camera and tell the stories of women. We will change that and acquire a voice for women in Nepal. 


If you have the required skills, a sense for adventure, an open heart, and the courage to volunteer you can help change the narrative for women in Nepal.
