This project is specially designed for women who have come to Kathmandu from rural areas to work as housemaids. Most of these female workers do not have even basic education and find it difficult to survive particularly at this age where education has become a fundamental aspect for survival. Therefore, through our project, the foreign teachers enable students to form relationships with someone from another background and culture, and the teachers can learn different teaching methods and techniques.

Chetana Mahila Secondary School was established to educate, to civilize, to make self assured and independent younger and elderly women in Kathmandu who were deprived from education in time. This is the age of science and technology so education is more important rather than food, shelter and clothing. The main target of this school is to motivate the younger and elder women to show their hidden talents and to make them able to participate in developmental activities of family, society and nation.

You will teach and educate adult women of different age groups and with different learning capacities. You are free to use different methods to teach but you can use the course book as reference or educate them through conversational and spoken English. During your time there you can teach them different subjects such as mathematics, science, geography, computer, technologies, music, spoken and conversational English, personal development, environment awareness, general health and safety and so on. All higher education in Nepal is in English, so it is vitally important that they learn English. A trained teacher is committed to raising standards in schools in Nepal, and with an adult literacy rate of 67% there is plenty of room for improvement.
