COYON - Volunteering - Education

Education is the major factor for the social change and development. As Chinese proverb demands “If you are planning for a year, plant some rice. If you are planning for ten years, plant a tree. If you are planning for 100 years, open a school” educating people will give long lasting result. Our main focus is in the education sector and we are dedicated to bring social changes in Nepal through education. This why, we have designed various educational based volunteering programme as bellow:

Student Programme Volunteer

School education began in Nepal with the establishment of first school in 1853 (The Durbar High School). However, this school was only for the members of the ruling Rana families and their courtiers. Schooling for the general people began only after 1951 when a popular movement ended an autocratic family regime and initiated a democratic system. In Nepal, school education includes primary level of grades 1-5, lower secondary and secondary levels of grades 6-8 and 9-10 respectively. Pre-primary level of education is also available in certain areas. Six years of age is the prescribed age for getting admission in grade one. A national level School Leaving Certificate Examination is conducted at the end of grade ten.

An experience of living with a community of monetarily poor but wisdom wise people and teaching in a school of remote Himalaya is not for everyone, and is certainly not something to be taken on lightly; but volunteering is the most direct and rewarding way of assisting in the educational prospects of the Himalayan peoples. Volunteers will be involved in teaching subjects like English, Mathematics, and Science in a government or private run primary, secondary or high level schools. As most books are in Nepali, you can design your own course as an extra subject with co-ordination and discussion with headmaster or fellow teachers.

"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains.  The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires."
- William A. Ward

Physical Education (Athletics & Sport)

As we know athletic and sport is an important part of our life in order to keep ourselves healthy and happy as well as vibrant and tolerant. The equal doses of academic education and physical education will make a person able to address any sort of obstacle of life. In this sophisticated, busy and environmentally polluted world, everyday we are in need of more physical practice such as athletics and yoga in order to keep ourselves smart and fit. Physical Education is a necessity for everyone no matter whether child, youth or old.

In Nepal many primary and high school are employing athletic trainer to deliver the preventive and rehabilitation needs of their students. Students are required to participate a physical exercise session every morning at least for half hour before their class start. In the classes of lower secondary and secondary school, there is a specific course for health & physical education. Different type of sport activities is being organized frequently in the school.

If you are dynamic person having knowledge of any athletic, general sport or defensive sports such as, Tekwando, Karate, Martial arts etc, then you will have a volunteering opportunity to share your knowledge with our children and youths in the various part of the country.
