Training Teachers in Nepal

Hi, 

My name is Jennah and I am a teacher at Moreland Primary School. Over the January summer holidays I am donating three weeks of my time to go to Nepal along with 25 other teachers to train and support Nepalese teachers who have limited resources at their schools. I am doing this with an organisation called Limited Resource Teacher Training (LRTT).

Why?
Nepal’s himalayan terrain makes much of the country rural making teacher development difficult. The 2015 earthquake further set back the education system and today 90% of students aren’t able to pass English and Maths. In this setting teacher training is both challenging and crucial.

Since 2013 LRTT have worked with local educational organisations in and around the Kathmandu valley. By facilitating training through a combination of workshops, coaching and reflection they work to support teachers in Kathmandu and surrounding rural valleys.

The cost of volunteering for the program is $2054 which will cover accomodation, meals and transport in Nepal. I am paying for my own flights to get there and back, however I would really appreciate any donations towards the program cost, as little or as much as you are able to give will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Miss Jennah
