My answer to the question "What do you want to be when you be when you grow up?" always differed. Sometimes, I wanted to be an Engineer and sometimes, I saw myself as a lawyer. One thing I knew was what I did not want to be and it was being a teacher. Fortunately or unfortunately, my first job after graduation was as a teacher in a rural village of Sindhupalchok district. During two years of fellowship, I have realized that life has never been fair to the people living in the rural villages of Nepal. What hit me the most was realizing that the students walking hours to reach their school was not a myth that my parents used to tell me when I was a child. It was real. It was there right in front of my eyes. It gets even worse when the kids do not get quality education when they reach school after hours of walk. This broke my heart and I was determined to provide them with the education they deserve. I, along with my co-fellows, did multiple things to give exposure to t...

Born in a rural village in Far Western Development Region I was lucky to get a good education as my grandfather invested his savings to educate me at a private boarding school, while rest of my siblings were enrolled in public school. It clearly depicted the educational inequality in my own family. I managed to get a good education from Pokhara University even though I faced lots of financial hardship and struggle. I was honoured with “Nepal Bidhya Bhusan Class C” gold medal from honourable President, Mrs Bidhya Devi Bhandari for securing top position among Bachelor level of Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. I got the opportunity to participate in JENESYS 2.0 a student exchange program in Tokyo, Japan. After completing my bachelor’s degree, I was in search of meaningful and impactful work and Teach for Nepal provided me with the opportunity. I was placed in Bhotenamlang Secondary School of Sindhupalchowk District, 45 km from Kathmandu. There, I no...

Imagine a classroom of more than 80 students, on a hot summer day! A hot wave of air of around 40 degree Celsius touches all of our sweaty skin. One of my students asks me, “Sir, yo sikaidinus (Sir, please teach me this)”. His dedication to learning in such hot weather, made me realize my need as a teacher in this school. I am Bikash Ghimire, a math fellow, teaching in Shree Gyan Batika Secondary School, Subarnapur, Parsa. This is my second year as a teacher in this school. As the first cohort of fellows to be placed in Parsa district, we have been fortunate to experience the context of this place. We are taking this challenge to help those children attain the quality education and for this transformation, I request you to help in this noble cause. Aid me in this challenge by donating. Even the smallest help counts in taking me closer to this challenge that I am undertaking. Teach for Nepal is a non-profit organization that collects its funds through various ...

I have to answer the question of my students, "Miss, why are you doing community visit in 42 degree Celsius? You are tender. You will get tired. Nobody had come to our houses before." Deep down, I ask myself. Am I doing enough to serve my children? I reflect back upon my 15 months fellowship journey of Teach For Nepal every now and then. I have lived and explored my life in the community. I have realized that I am blessed with good humans who are genuinely guiding me into the road less travelled by - the road I could have never walked alone. The path that leads towards educational equality. Being a Teach For Nepal fellow, I have been nurtured with great support. Therefore, my children in the community have witnessed me as their aspiration. It motivates me even more after knowing that I could persuade my students to believe in change. At present, our Shree Gyan Batika Secondary School, Subarnapur, Parsa, 200 girls from Tharu ethnicity aspire to be the change mak...

My ego tells me I can do it all by myself. But my intuition built from my experiences allows me to embrace the belief on interdependence that it will happen only with your generous support. All the people coming together and owning this social justice movement will enable to bridge the achievement and opportunity gap. A kid born in a Tamang family in Sindhupalchowk should have equal life opportunities, which a kid born in Kathmandu in a well to do family does as both are guided by the same constitution and education policy. Our efforts are taking a certain direction. It is because of our two years of fellowship kids like Sunita Waiba and Prerana Pakhren now have better opportunities in life. Kids like Sunita and Prerana deserves more teachers like me. Your contribution to this campaign will ensure Teach For Nepal to continue to send young Nepali graduates change-makers inside the classroom. Together, we can change the direction of life irrespective of our kid's birthpla...

If you come to visit Melamchi someday, you'll be quite impressed with its infrastructures around the market area. Rapid urbanization was a result of the development works carried out in this municipality after the earthquake. However, if you decide to explore the area a bit further you'll notice a vast difference in the communities around the main 'bazaar' area. Steep hills with plenty of tin houses, fertile lands, and countless stories; Melamchi Bazaar is a silver lining to the tragedy brought on to the locals by the massive earthquake of 2015. One day, I had decided to visit the communities that my students live in. It took me 3 hours to reach Daduwa, a village from where a number of my Tamang students come to school every day. For them, it takes two hours to come and go to school on a daily basis. Not only did they walk for two hours but their lifestyle was more rigorous with having to feed the cattle, chopping woods, growing vegetables, cleaning dishes; all of these done on a ...

Education is one of the most important part of our life. It is no secret that a good education has the power to change a life. It is the key to success. I feel so lucky that I have a privilege to get a good education since my childhood. All this credit goes to my parents who value the education and its importance in my life. But not everyone is lucky like me and not everybody has privilege to get good education like us. Once I was reading an article about the Education crisis in Nepal and I was blown up by the facts and figures. β€˜β€™One hundred thousand students do not complete their school.’’ This means they will not have same life opportunities as other children. I was saddened by the fact. I feel like I need to do something for this but could not figure out how to do that have. On doing research, I came to know about Teach for Nepal, one of the not for profit organisation that is working on this issue. Teach for Nepal is only the organisation, passionately w...
