The Experience

Samata Shiksha Niketan (The Bamboo School Project) builds schools made with bamboo and corrugated iron roofs. The aim is to provide quality education for a low fee to underprivileged children in Nepal. The Bhaktapur branch is looking for volunteers to teach English grammar, conversation classes and help with activities and events. The 900+ students range from 4 - 18y/o. For 5 usd per day we can cover the expenses of food and accomodation

I will always remember Samata School, was a unique experience meet Shova and live with all the kids this 3 months. Since the first second they make me feel part of the family, teaching me about their traditions, culture and the beautiful country that is Nepal. The kids are so lovely and warm, and they give you the 100% in any project that you propose them, and all the school's staff and the people that i meet here was really nice. Im gonna miss you a lot, but i will be back soon, for sure! I know that i have more family now =)

Experience I'll remember 4 rest of my lyf. I did not expect anything b4 I go there. Al I had in my mind that I was goin 2 meet som beautiful ppl. I knew about the bambu skul of Nepal 4 a lng tym but never tot I was goin 2 b there like that. Shova didi even took us 2 her village during Tihar vacation & let us stay with her beautiful family & cooked lovly traditional meals. I heard abt her dad's murder in front of her by terrorist at a young age and d responsibility she took as the oldest membr of the family.. I felt respected evriwer coz She earnd respect all over. Luv you didi, luv U Samata.

I can't even explain how amazing my experience at the school has been. In fact, I don't think a few words can describe how friendly and family-like the school's staff and the students have been. The students are so culturally aware, respectful and loving that one is bound to make dozens of life-long friends in a very short while. It's an experience that has made a substantial addition to me and will stay with me for life. I look forward to coming back here.

Volunteering at Samata has been the most heartwarming experience to date. It was amazing to meet so many very eager students who wanted to learn and interact with me and the other volunteer (Elena).

Shova made everything possible to make me feel comfortable and part of the family. Everyone, from the students, to the teachers made me feel like I belonged, and I felt so much love.

I love how close everything was to the school -- 5min walk to the Kamal Binyak Pond, and 15min walk to Dattatreya Square and 20mins to Bhaktapur Square.

Will definitely come visit the school and everyone again.❤

It was such an amazing experience! I’m thankful for everything. Children so smart, friendly and interesting.
The Principal if the school, Shova- she is a brilliant person! She helped me a lot. I always felt myself like a part of big family.
Everything was perfect, room, the food, and location!! The school is just next to the most famous parts of Bhaktapur.
Thank you so much, and I hope to visit Samata school again :)
