The tourist city of Pokhara is popular with travelers to Nepal and has been well supported by past Childcare volunteers. This means childcare centers are well funded and set up, which enables volunteers to continue to make a difference in an organised environment.
Volunteers should expect to be focusing on sustaining these rejuvenated placements, rather than implementing and funding new initiatives. The Childcare project in Pokhara offers volunteers a platform to contribute your enthusiasm and creativity in order to brighten up the days of the children and advance their English language skills by engaging them in fun and educational activities.
You’re encouraged to arrive with your own initiatives and ideas of activities to arrange for the children. We encourage volunteers to not be afraid to get involved in the day-to-day running of these placements.
Your tasks will vary depending on the center you’re volunteering in, but in general you can expect to assist with teaching, general life skills and health education, games, activities and drawing and painting.
Volunteers who want additional work outside the childcare center also have the option to take part in nearby before and after school classes with local children. The Childcare project in Pokhara is perfect for first time volunteers or for those who have not worked within a Childcare center before.Apply now
