VIN’s Nepal teacher development volunteer program offers one the opportunity to assess the Nepali educational system in rural areas and actually do something to make a positive change. You as a volunteer would be given the chance to observe teaching methods used within the classroom, and initiate activities or workshops of your own, instructing the local teachers in the field of interaction.

If able, you may also teach the teachers English. Within this program, VIN is also looking towards setting up a teachers exchange program, where schools from Nepal and abroad may exchange teachers for a certain period of time. If you as a volunteer would like to be our medium to these schools abroad, you are welcome. This Nepal teacher development volunteer program stands as a strong advocate of quality education.

One of the crucial issues for quality education has been Teacher Development. Most of the Public Schools have untrained and unqualified (more than 60%) teachers; the primary level of formal education is commonly regarded as the foundation of quality education. VIN therefore aims to promote quality education through the development of teachers. The organization has been conducting various activities, e.g. workshops, teacher trainings, interaction seminars, exchange visits, and individual support. Many of the teachers have been benefiting from such programs - VIN has observed a significant change in their classroom behaviors and found positive impact upon students' learning. The organization conducts teacher training and other activities under its cluster (in one cluster there are 7 schools) approach.  
Volunteers on teacher development have also been supporting teachers by providing teaching materials and sharing their own experiences from their home countries. If you are interested in teacher development, you are very welcome to conduct any activity that supports our ideals on the subject. Your support can make a world of difference to these children's education! We also aim to launch teacher exchange programs across the countries so that teachers from two different sides can widen their horizon of knowledge in the field. This exchange will give teachers a chance to challenge themselves and step outside of their comfort zone. This challenging nature of the task at hand might push the teachers to learn about adjusting to various systems, molding them into better, more practical educators. VIN hopes to find the right partners to initiate such a School Linking program from any part of the world. You can also engage in this cause, from your own country by sharing this information with interested schools. VIN aims to:

•    Equip and develop teachers personally and professionally to deliver participatory and child friendly classroom teaching learning practices effectively.

•    Teach English or help the teacher learn English language
•    Conduct English clinic for communicative English competency.
•    Promote teamwork to foster congenial learning environment in school. 
•    Develop a built-in mechanism of support system through class observation, feedback, etc.
•    Establish linkage between teachers within and outside the country.

VIN equips its stakeholders through workshops, training, meetings, seminars, interaction etc.
