Trek to Teach Nepal is a teaching and trekking program. If you are interested in doing some good work while you travel, volunteering in Nepal is a great choice for you.

Gain some heart-filling volunteer opportunities teaching the marginalized Chepang community. You will be posted as their guest teacher. Based on our experience, our itinerary allows you to trek and volunteer for a week each. However, based on your interest, we will customize the trip.

Volunteering in such schools will help the students of those villages will elaborate them for their future. It also helps the school to train its students in the best way possible.

This trek takes you to a Chepang village of Chitwan. Chitwan itself is a very natural city with one of the beautiful national park in Asia.

Chepangs – the center of  Trek to Teach Nepal program

The Chepang are an indigenous Tibeto-Burman people group numbering around fifty-two thousand mainly inhabiting the rugged ridges of the Mahabharata mountain range of central Nepal. Chepangs is originally nomads of Chitwan with their distinct culture, language and lifestyle. You will experience all of this first hand as a Trek to Teach Nepal Volunteer.

Over the past two or three generations, the Chepang have begun to slowly shift from a semi-nomadic  lifestyle to agricultural. They farm and grow maize, millet and bananas. The severe topography often challenges farming. So, the forest is still an important source of food for them.

Historically, they collected wild yams and tubers, caught fish and birds and hunted wild animals for living. With increasing population, lack of arable land and few irrigation options, malnutrition is a great challenge for children. Chepang men and women are egalitarian with no clearly defined social heirarchy.

Why we need you for Trek to Teach Nepal

People with western influence are clearly in touch with technology, and through this, they are learning and advancing day by day. However, in remote areas of Nepal with a scarcity of education tools, it is very hard for the schools and the children to keep up.

The remote village schools do their best, but their facilities, supplies, and educational materials are limited and dated.

We need volunteers who are fluent in English and help us bring supplies to the schools and help those villages increase their literacy and connection to the world.

What we provide for Trek to Teach Nepal Volunteers

You will stay in home stay where accommodation and meals are provided. However, there are no possibilities to arrange a separate bath and toilet in the villages. You will be served locally produced rice, vegetable and dal (lentil).

The Chepangs have been really friendly, helpful and supportive to our volunteers. Before entering the village, we will conduct some session to train you about the language and culture.

We will also arrange jungle activities in Chitwan and sightseeing in Kathmandu for your refreshment which are inclusive within the cost.

Essential things you need to bring

Chepang village lies in low altitude; there is no possibility, or risk and fear of happening altitude sickness. The weather is also not so cold. Despite of sunny whole day, night will be a bit cold as compared to day. We recommend Trek to Teach Nepal volunteers bring sleeping bags, flashlight, seasonal clothes, trekking shoes, toiletries accessories, simple medicine and common travel accessories. It’s better to carry insect repellent, moisturizer and sunscreen.

Contact us directly if you would like to spend your precious time volunteering and helping the children of the Chepang community.

Frequently Asked Questions

...
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
