Home: Makhan Tole, Kathmandu, Bagmati
Education: B.A.-B.S.W, Thames International College, Tribhuvan University, Nepal
Though I attended one of the most renowned schools in town, the system of education was not prioritized for the needs of individual students. Despite having good infrastructure and opportunities in extracurricular activities, the teaching was still theory based rather than practical.
I learned about Teach For Nepal in a college info session at Thames International College. As a Social Work student, I am aware of the challenges faced by the students of government schools. My participation at various workshops and volunteer teaching at schools have made me more interested in this field.
This fellowship became the most appropriate platform to give students what I missed in school while also contributing to long-term education improvements.
My parents became supportive and were happy when I was selected for this fellowship. Their optimism in the mission I have joined makes my commitment even stronger.
