Sparking inspiration in Nepali teachers

Sometimes it is the simplest things that have the biggest impact! We at First Steps Himalaya, have developed a series of practical hands on teacher training workshops that motivate rural teachers to become better educators. Teachers from rural schools attend a five day training workshop where they learn about classroom and behaviour management and exciting ways to teach literacy, numeracy and science.

Things often get messy at our training and rightly so. Teachers get involved in making their own resources from locally available materials, to create brightly decorated learning environments. They also experience the fun side of learning so that they can share this with the children in their classes.

Shanta Poudel, headteacher at Shree Rambachha School in Walling is an inspiration to others. Having attended two of our five day training courses, she was so inspired that she has totally transformed her classroom into a wonderful calm, child friendly learning space. Well done Shanta!

By training teachers across rural Nepal, we are impacting the educational outcomes of thousands of children.

Help us train more teachers. NZ$200 can fund the initial training of a teacher, for immediate improvement in the classroom. If you would like to contribute to this vital work, please consider making a donation.
