Little Daffodils English Boarding School

In the past week we have been making regular visits to a little school in a rural community by the name of Pame (30 minutes outside of Pokhara) to discuss and organize volunteers helping out in classrooms and with general projects on the school grounds.  Lekhnath, a local teacher, set up the Little Daffodils English Boarding School 18 years ago as he could see a good education was far out of reach for the people in this community.  He has managed to keep school fees down and transport to and from affordable.  At some times this has meant he has had to pay out of his own pocket to keep the school running.  The buildings are in disrepair and could certainly use a good lick of paint.

We took our first teaching volunteer into the school with us on Thursday and spent most of the day attending classes and teaching a few.  We were met with huge smiles from the children and warm greetings from the teachers.

Our aim is to first help the current students with their English fluency by introducing practice activities in their English classes to get them talking more.  In the process we hope to show the local teachers how they could apply these practise activities to their other classes.  Our volunteers will be teaching alongside the local teachers and holding regular workshops with them to bring new ideas into the school.                                   

In just the few days that we have spent there, we have been approached by several teachers who have tried to spend their free time practising their conversational English with us.  This has been very encouraging for our hopes for this project.

Most of the teachers are from this community and many of the women were housewives before Lekhnath hired them to teach his classes.  He has tried wherever possible to supply employment to local people who also have family here.    We believe that GVI’s presence in this school will benefit not only the students and teachers, but also their families nearby as our project develops.  Helping with supplying teaching techniques for English will eventually mean the school will be self-sufficient with a more advanced English program.
