Nava Indradhanush English Boarding school was founded in 1995 with only 15 students. Currently, we provide education to almost 150 students between 4 and 14 years old. No matter where the kids are from or which status their parents have, everyone should have a chance of receiving good education. The school is also home for 15 children whose parents are not able to take care of them. But after everything that has already been achieved, we do not stop dreaming. We want every kid in Nepal to have a chance at a better life. This starts with a good education. If you want to experience the real side of volunteering, making a change in the children's life, trying Nepali food, staying at my family's house, exchanging cultures and more, this is the place for you!
In my school, we need volunteers all year round to support teaching different subjects (English, maths, science, arts, sports, etc., improving the teaching skills of the staff, creating new material, organizing, activities, updating our blog, building new facilities, etc. We ask volunteers to pay a small sum of 5 US dollars a day to stay here. This cost includes three meals (mostly Dal Bhat and mainly vegetarian) boiled/filtered water, cold shower and WiFi. Please note that the served food is basic, however you are able to stock up on extra items at the local stores and small local eateries a short walk from the house.
Our experience was incredible. Robin made us feel like home and his wife just cooked the best Nepalese food that we could have, it was delicious. He brought us for some temples and to visit local people.
The work that he does with kids is so important, he makes a big impact in his community and we are so grateful to have helped a little bit.
