Volunteering News

David Wilson is going to Nepal in early November to spend a month working in HTUK supported schools. He is a primary teacher from Manchester, so well used to teaching across the curriculum, and has an interest in cricket.

Our Education Programme Team has created an interesting schedule for him. David will start his volunteering programme in Lelep, the hub secondary school for a number of outlying schools. From there he will branch out to include work in a number of primary feeder schools focusing on maths, science and English. He will work closely with the teachers, supporting their delivery of the curriculum and showing a variety of ways to enhance the learning environment for children.

He is keen to involve children in after school sporting activities and will try to arrange an inter-school Kwik cricket competition.

He is an enthusiastic walker and trail runner so the hills of Taplejung should not cause him too much trouble. When he finishes his spell as a volunteer, he is being joined by his father to trek into the Annapurna Sanctuary.

We wish him luck in his venture and hope that he will be the first of many volunteers. We’ve asked him to keep us posted about his experiences, so watch this space!
