About Teach For Nepal
Teach For Nepal is a movement working to address educational inequality in Nepal that launched in 2013. One of its first initiatives has been to establish a program to recruit high achieving graduates and young professionals into teaching Fellowship. This initial Fellowship provides an initial intensive residential training followed by two years on-the-job training for new Fellows in the classroom. Now in its sixth year, the movement has achieved support from local government and shown strong results based on a number of assessments.
Fellows completing the Fellowship go to secondary schools serving lower-socio-economic-status communities. As well as complementing traditional teacher education, every year the Fellowship aims to draw a new pool of talented individuals into teaching and provide them with the leadership skills they need in order to have a long-term, systemic impact on educational inequality.
Currently, 110 Fellows are teaching English, science and maths in 51 schools in six districts across Nepal changing the lives of 10,000 children.
Teach For Nepal operates with the help of local donors, Nepalese living abroad and in partnership with the government, schools and corporates who want to help in reducing educational inequality in Nepal.
