Nepali Mountain Peace School seeks Volunteer Teachers

Sarswati Peace school was founded in 2012 in the small village of Arupokhari in the Gorkha district of Nepal. After nearly a decade of brutal civil war, the Sarswati Peace school was built with the intention to help the next generation have a better life. This idyllic mountain village overlooks the beautiful white peaks of the Himalayas, with eagles soaring above and smiley Nepali villagers bustling around farming. The school was founded by a local Nepali who wanted to bring the opportunity of primary education and English language learning to his community. Equipped with internet access, a projector, three large outdoor playing spaces, and 12 small classrooms, this English-medium school has loads of potential. It currently serves a few hundred eager, joyful and well-mannered local children who grateful for the opportunity to learn. Current staff (chairman and teachers) are friendly, approachable and excited to work with foreigners.
