All Fellows

My father left his village at the age of 14 with just 50 paisa. He worked as a security guard so that he could provide for our family. Growing up, I never had the privilege of going out for adventures with my friends even though I wanted to travel. Just like any parents in Nepal, they dreamed of me having a government job which is pretty much like winning a lottery, you’re set for life even if that means you are terrible at the job. During school, I barely passed any subjects and was never competitive as my mind used to wander away as soon as the teachers start reading the book. I took tuition after school but that didn’t change my grades until Ramesh sir started teaching us English. His classes were always pleasant to be in and his teaching methods were interesting and hands on. Though he was an English teacher he was great at teaching science as well as math. The more time, I spent learning from him, the more grades started ascending towards hundred. As a Teach For Nepal Fellow,...

From a young age I had the dream of joining the army or the police force or becoming a doctor because I loved serving others. I believed that in any of these jobs I could serve others and my family as well by earning good money because it was hard for my father to support us all. My eldest brother dropped out of school in grade 9 to start earning and ease the burden. Unfortunately, I did not have the money to study medicine and I was too young for the army. But thanks to the sacrifices of my elders, I was able to study engineering. Although I found a good job afterwards, I was not getting satisfaction from the work. I felt that although I could earn much money for my family and myself, my desire to serve others was being limited in this corporate world. Therefore, I joined Teach for Nepal in order to cultivate all the necessary attributes which are required to bring drastic change. I want children not only to have access to quality education but also to cultivate ethical values in...

I applied to TFN because I want to help reduce education inequality. My parents made many sacrifices to make sure that their children, including their daughters, would get good education. But not all kids are lucky enough to have parents like mine. I see people from other countries showing an interest in helping to educate our people and think, then why not us? If a small effort of mine can help change the future of others, then that is what I should do. I know the value of education in today’s world and want to help in the misson to create an educated Nepal. My classroom will not just be a monotonous hall filled with lectures and assignments. I will try my best to make my class and books interesting. I want to form a bond with my students where they will not hesitate to share their feelings. I want to be a teacher who is a role model whom my students will follow.

As the youngest child in my family, I was supported by my elder brothers for my education. Despite not coming from a very privileged family, I was able to complete Bachelor’s in Engineering from Western Regional Campus in 2070. During and after People’s War, I used to listen to political programs on the radio which made me think about the inequality, injustice, and problems that existed in the society. I also took part in Jana Andolan-2 in 2062. I engaged in different organizations and regularly read newspapers that got me thinking about the inequality in education and teaching methodology. I first learned about Teach For Nepal through a newspaper ad that featured Mahabir Pun along with one Teach For Nepal Fellow. As I have become a part of it now, I am glad that Fellowship has turned out to be more than teaching and pedagogy, and lays emphasis on changing myself from inside and then the community. Having come from a public school myself, I understand the challenges of public ...

I was raised by a single mother, and I give all the credits to my selfless mother for making me what I am today. She taught me to be graceful, caring and independent. Her sheer determination to overcome difficulty has always been an inspiration to me. Her dedication to fulfilling our needs and necessities through hardships has helped me to strongly believe that one should never lose hope when faced with difficult circumstances. I remember while I was in school, I had a hard time understanding the concepts of mathematics. With the help of an amazing teacher and the influence of my mother, I was able to overcome math anxiety. After finishing higher education, I decided to study Environmental Science at Kathmandu University because of my interest in learning about the earth, its biology and to help develop solutions to environmental problems. After graduating from Kathmandu University, I was in the process of joining Tribhuvan University until my brother whispered in my ears, “Teach...

My mother has always been fond of learning, she loved going to school and was always eager to learn and understand new topics in her life. But due to family responsibilities, she had to leave her education to tend household needs. She sacrificed her education to make sure we had an easy life and her wish has always been that we attain an excellent education. My school days experiences are also one of the most memorable phases of my life. When I look back at those days smile automatically comes on my face. Teachers there were kind, supportive, humble and always motivating to thrive towards academic excellence. Their support made learning easier and fun. Their method of teaching was very effective not just to me but the entire class. Our teacher delivered the subject content in a simple yet unique way. They are the kind of teachers, I aspire to be during my Fellowship. I want to teach children maths by not just concentrating on formulas and problem solving, but with the help of ...

I was born in Tulsipur, Dang in a middle-class family. I was brought up well and got an opportunity to study in a private school instead of a government school. I passed SLC with distinction and along with education I was involved in sports like cricket, soccer and Taekwondo. After finishing my higher secondary school, my parents suggested me to study MBBS but I always wanted to pursue my career in mechanical engineering. While studying at Kathmandu University, I was involved in various activities organized by Kathmandu University Youth Red Cross Circle and I want to provide the same opportunities to my students during my Fellowship. I was always involved in sports during my school life and I plan to involve my students in it too. Using sports as a platform, I want to motivate my students to do good in their education as well as involve the community in school activities as well as the students’ academics.

I’m not the person who settles in the place someone has built for me. I have always yearned for purpose. This pursuit took me to rural Nepal for volunteering but my search was not over. I felt that I found what I was looking for when I first came to Teach For Nepal’s office and attended its information session where we were challenged with the question, “What if your first job was to change the nation?” When I learned about the mission TFN is working towards, I learnt more about the vicious cycle of poverty tied to lack of quality education, I decided that I had a role to play in breaking the cycle. As a student, I was fortunate enough to be guided by very good teachers who were teachers and friends to me as well. Therefore I owe my two years for others as I know that not everyone is as fortunate as I had been. With an aspiration to be an inspiration to many I will be able to reach, and to actually do something for “change” rather than just complaining about it, I hope to be th...

My father dropped out of school when he was in ninth grade to help his father financially and mother never went to school because at the time girls didn’t go to school in our village. My father moved us to Varanasi, India where he was stationed to provide a better education for me and my brother. Even though I was brought up in India, I always felt a strong connection to my roots and loved visiting Pakhu and Takam during summer vacation. Though living in India had its own perk, it never felt like home. I remember an incident in grade 10 when one of my classmates was bad mouthing about Nepal. One of the students who was also from Nepal tried to defend our nation but didn’t have an answer when the student told him why don’t he go back to his own country. Today more and more youths are leaving our nation in search of quality education. As a Teach For Nepal Fellow, I want to become the agent of change by being a leader in the community I serve and provide quality education so t...

My mother was forced by her family to marry a man who never fulfilled his responsibilities as a husband or father. She struggled hard to earn enough for me to have a quality education at a private school. I remember my uncles asking why she would send her daughter to such an expensive place when there was a public school nearby. Every time I see children from the public school passing by my house, the questions raised by my uncles saddened my heart. The urge to do something for the education of such children and the thought having unstabilized government and system of our country did not let me sleep some nights. When I see innocent little boys I feel the impulse to not let them be an irresponsible man with no respect for girls. When I see the angelic girls, I wish them to be strong and virtuous women. I want to help children in public schools get the education they need to follow their dreams. To help those with violent fathers. To help those struggling against societal discrimin...
