All Challenges Abroad programmes support our partner charity, The Futuresense Foundation. The Futuresense Foundation supports community development in some of the poorest regions of the world and is committed to improving learning in the communities where we work. With permanent teams in country all year round supporting projects, the Futuresense Foundation aim to engage children with quality education and provide them with a sense of aspiration. As a Global Citizen, you will play a key role in inspiring the next generation in the communities where we work.
One of the biggest issues in Nepal is a lack of access to quality education, which prevents people from receiving the education they need to gain employment and break out of the poverty cycle. Education is at the heart of the work we do with our communities. We believe that the best way to achieve positive change is by providing the next generation with access to quality education.
On the Nepal: Social Impact programme, you will be based in Dhulikel, a small town in the heart of the Kathmandu Valley. By participating on this programme, you’ll get to contribute to a range of exciting education projects including delivering Conversational English sessions to improve children’s competency and confidence speaking English, and STEM and life skills workshops that allow children to learn hands-on, develop their critical thinking skills and become more engaged in their education. You may also participate in infrastructure projects at local schools to improve facilities and create a safer and more conducive learning environment for children. There’s plenty to get involved with!

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience in the school. Teaching is a passion of mine, so it was incredibly rewarding to make that difference to children in Nepal. The experience enabled me to build upon my own skills, including teamwork and resilienceVolunteer - Keeley - Nepal
