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...

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 ...

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...

In 2014 April, I was placed as a Teach For Nepal Fellow at a school in Simle, Lalitpur. A remote village, which took about 5 hours on a local bus and over an hour of an uphill climb. A few months later, in July, results of national board examination School Leaving Certificate (SLC) was announced. Unfortunately, not a single student from placement school passed. About a year back, I learnt that one of the students, Sangita Jimba, that I and other Teach For Nepal Fellows taught at the school was selected to attend High School at United World College (UWC) in Germany. As a teacher, I couldn’t be prouder. Sangita is the first student, not just from her school but from that entire region, to get selected for such a prestigious international opportunity. Over the years, through the effort of Teach For Nepal Fellows, I have seen several changes in the schools and communities across the country. This wouldn't have been possible without the goodness of hundreds of people: ...

I still see this picture of my student (Sangita Jimba) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roN1DtAKHNI) as a memory of who she became by getting quality teachers through Teach for Nepal Fellowship. I started teaching her Mathematics when I did my Fellowship at rural part of Nepal. She got community exposure more when within 2 years, developed her personality, improved her academic and non-academic goals, got selected under full scholarship to pursue International Baccalaureate (IB) at United World College (https://www.uwcrobertboschcollege.de/en/) Germany. It wouldn't have been possible without the commitment of Teach for Nepal to upgrade quality education in public schools of Nepal. There are many children's who need support to dream big and follow the dreams they always want to follow. The photo reminds me of 1000s of Nepalese students who has curiosity, confidence, dreams, hardship, and a greater possibility in this whole world. The picture is a blink of hope for all the tea...

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 ...

Recently, I met Sudharshan in Tulsipur, Dang. He was attending a training session to become a Tutor through an initiative currently led by Teach For Nepal Alumna. I asked him, "How is the training going?" "It's fun," he said. "That's how Kanchan miss taught us last year." Kanchan (TFN Fellow 2018) was placed in Raniyapur, Dang to teach English last year. She taught Sudharshan in grade 10. He completed his school and is now studying grade 11. But, he feels the pain of many public school students like him. Therefore, he joined the program to become a tutor. Through that, he will support 20 public school kids studying in grade 3-5, who have struggled to even form a correct sentence or solve a basic subtraction problem, through afterschool tutoring program. Over the last seven years, Teach For Nepal has placed over 320 Fellows who have touched the lives over about 15,000 kids. Currently, 138 TFN Fellows teach 10,000 students like Sudharsha...

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...

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...
