May 31, 2023

When students had a hard time remembering formulas, she would play fun games with them. For instance, she’d pair up students and assign them a chapter each. They would then use cue cards to quiz each other and help each other learn such concepts. Sometimes she urged her students to stop and smell the flowers. “How else can students understand environmental science?”, she says. One can’t help but agree with her.

March 21, 2023

"विद्यालय रहेको गाउँ सखुवापर्सौनीमा आउने बिजुली पोखरिया नगरपालिकाबाट प्रसारण हुने रहेछ। पोखरिया नगरपालिकामा थुप्रै कलकारखाना छन्। तिनले दिउँसो बढी ऊर्जा खपत गर्ने भएकाले गाउँतिर बिजुली कटौती गरिने रहेछ।
मैले बिजुलीबिनै चल्ने प्रोजेक्टर बनाउन विद्यार्थीहरूलाई उत्साहित गराएँ। हामीले सिंगल लेन्स र डबल लेन्स प्रोजेक्टर बनायौं। यसले मोबाइल फोनको दृश्य ठूलो बनाएर देखाउन सक्थ्यो।"

ELEVATE NEPAL'S FUTURE: EMPOWER THROUGH EDUCATION

Campaign ends on: April 30, 2024

In 2023, I have had the chance to summit two mighty peaks: Aconcagua, the towering summit of the Western Hemisphere (6,961m), and Ama Dablam in Nepal (6,812m). To commemorate this milestone, my aim is to raise USD 20,000 for education initiatives in Nepal, with Teach For Nepal being a key project I've chosen to support. We all carry memories of at least one teacher who left an indelible mark on us, reshaping our worldview. Teach For Nepal excels in creating such transformative experiences. Nepal faces a challenge with under-resourced public schools, struggling to attract and retain teachers. Annually, a staggering 80% of students in these schools do not complete secondary education.

During this period, Fellows engage in teaching roles within rural village public schools, fostering academic achievement and profound changes among their students. Simultaneously, they hone their leadersh…
