Teach For Nepal



Only about 3 in 10 children in Nepal's public school system graduate from secondary schools. Where as 90% children who go to private schools graduate. We recruit, train, and place outstanding young Nepalese leaders to teach in rural public schools to end education inequity in Nepal. Teach For Nepal fellowship is a highly competitive, challenging, and rewarding leadership development program that will prepare the participants to be lifelong leaders.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Most children in Nepal do not have a real choice to define their life opportunities. Almost 70% of those between grade 1 and 10 have dropped out of school. Only 50% of the students who take the SLC (School Leaving Certificate Exam) - taken after 10th grade - graduate. In 2013 , over 335,000 students who took the SLC failed to graduate. Of the students who went the private schools passed the SLC at about 87%, but only 28% public school students completed.

How will this project solve this problem?

Teach for Nepal brings outstanding Nepalese university graduates and young professionals -- to teach in under-resourced public schools for two years. We focus on maths, science and English, where over 90% students fail in the national board examinations called the School Leaving Certificate (SLC) examinations.

Potential Long Term Impact

Over the long term, Teach for Nepal will build an alumni network that will work inside and outside the education system to support long-term transformation. After completing the two year fellowship, many of the Fellows are expected to be engaged in education issues. Some Fellows may choose to remain in the classroom, transition to school administration, or enter public education leadership.
