Volunteers participating in the Teaching program in Nepal will be conducting English classes at local Nepalese public or private schools, which are short of staff and are in need of regular volunteers. Tourism is one of the main industries in Nepal and a strong command over the English language can land a sophisticated and decent pay job. It is of a great benefit to working as a volunteer teaching in schools in Nepal, not just for the children from the underprivileged section but the volunteers as well. 

All that is required from the volunteers to execute this task is that they should have good English speaking abilities and lots of enthusiasm to work with children. Starting with the basics of the language, the kids would be delighted if they are able to learn simple, short sentences which enables them to understand English and express themselves in the same language.
