Service Trip To Nepal

As an educator it has been my life mission and goal to provide excellent education to children who have been identified as high risk due to their social economic stance, individualized education plans and second language learners. This year I have had the privilege to work as an English as a Second Language Teacher in South Philadelphia. During my experience in South Philadelphia I have worked with Karen, Indonesian,Cambodian, Mexican, Laos, Mandarin,Burmese and Nepali students. Many of my students are brand new to the United States and have spent most of their lives in refugee camps. I have especially been inspired by those students!


This summer I have the opportunity to work in Nepal, one of the native nations of many of my refugee students. More than 80% of the children from Nepal's villages and cities are unable to access a good educational system. This is due to a lack of financial and physical resources as well as the remote mountain geography of the country. Volunteers participating in the Nepal Teaching English program will teach English at a Nepali public or private school. Volunteers will assist with creating low-cost teaching materials for the school and help organize health check-ups for students.


As an educator in Nepal I would also have the opportunity to participate in orphanage work. In lesser developed countries such as Nepal, thousands upon thousands of children are orphans, with no real home, no family and no opportunity to get an education. Through the IVHQ Nepal orphanage work program, volunteers will be placed in an orphanage/care house where they will assist children in their day to day routine. The general role of the volunteer will be to act as an older sibling to the children. What volunteers do specifically in each orphanage varies depending on where they are placed and the requirements at the time of the placement. However examples of work include; helping teach the children and assisting with tuition of general life skills through participating in administrative chores, health education, games, and by drawing and painting with the children. By volunteering for IVHQ's orphanage work program, volunteers help to mold and shape the young minds of talented, charming and grateful children.


I am asking for a donation to help me make my dream of serving in Nepal a reality. Thank you in advance for your kind support!
