NTTI is conducting teacher trainings in increasingly remote Himalayan villages

In the past months, NTTI trainers have been traveling to increasingly remote corners of Nepal including Manbu, Sirdibas, and Lapu in North Gorkha, where schools are typically a 3-6 days walk to the nearest road and paths are often steep and treacherous. In most villages, this is the first time teachers have received training and they are very open and excited to learn new techniques.

North Gorkha Training Report, Submitted by Master Trainer Sumati S. 

"The trail was wet and slippery and the Gandaki River was raging far below us as we trekked up the mountain to the village where we were giving our 5-day training. Our guide told us that there had been many landslides this winter and that numerous people and mules had fallen over the path into the river loosing their limbs along the way. We were scared, but when we arrived in the village after it was already dark, all the teachers were waiting for us with eager, smiling faces and katas (ceremonial scarves) and mallas (garlands of flowers) and that made our treacherous trip worth it. 

At the end of our training Rayendra Sir gave a speech about how useful the information was for him and for all the teachers. I could see from his eyes that he really meant it. The teachers promised us that they would use all the NTTI techniques and we are now excited to see their improvement when we return for our post-training classroom observations after a few months. We hope though that the mountain paths will be less dangerous on our next trip. 

Here are some things the teachers said about our training: 

The NTTI training taught me how to make my students think and not just memorize.”      Anisha, Primary School, Teacher at Buddha Secondary School

Previously I gave lots of lectures but now I  will try to let my students discover he answers for themselves in different ways. I feel much more confident and passionate about my teaching after the training.”     Mukti, Lower Secondary Teacher at Bhuddah Secondary School, Sirdibas

"This  training for us is a great asset from NTTI . We will keep it until our last breath. I particularly like the trainer's way of giving feed back in a very positive way. Now I am stealing their technique of giving feedback. We promise you NTTI that what you taught us will be always in our heart and we will apply it in our school. "      Principal of Manbu Higher Secondary School. 

Thanks to the generous contributions from our supporters, NTTI has trained more than 1,500 teachers from 11 Districts across the country. Because each teacher works with roughly 60 students, NTTI -trained teachers are having a positive impact on more than 90,000 children!!

With continued funding we will be able to train 1,500 additional teachers over the next three years. 


Thank you so much for your support!
