PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The education system in Nepal faces many challenges, with rural schools often being the most disadvantaged. Schools are underfunded, there is very little hands-on learning and finding quality teachers is difficult.

 

How You Can Help

Our charity the FutureSense Foundation works with the local community year-round to develop and implement programs that address these issues and improve overall education quality. As an education intern, you will be assisting this work. Some of the projects you could be involved in include:

  • Conducting research to understand the complex issues affecting education in the local area.

  • Developing curricula that will engage children in their education and fill current knowledge gaps.

  • Running workshops to help up-skill local teachers.

  • Delivering lessons at local schools that allow children to learn in a hands-on manner and develop crucial life skills.

Internship Structure

When you arrive in Nepal you’ll be met by our team at the airport. Over the next few days you’ll have a thorough induction and orientation where you’ll learn about Nepalese culture and history, get your bearings around town, meet community partners and gain a better understanding of the context of the projects you’ll be working on.

For the rest of your internship you'll work with FutureSense Monday - Friday and the weekend will be free to do your own travelling. In the final week of your internship you will give a presentation to the FutureSense team and local community members of the projects you've been working on.

On the last day, you’ll be transported back to the airport or you can continue on with your own travels.
