Teacher Training

Teacher Training

HV supports international teachers visiting Nepal to provide peer training and collaboration to develop new curriculum and classroom techniques to engage educators and students. Supported by the ECIS Sir Peter Ustinov Outreach Grant, Istanbul International Community School started this initiative with a training in Inquiry-Based Education that provided professional development to twenty-five teachers from twelve village schools. This program is slated to expand to other locations and will eventually include a teacher exchange program to bring Nepali teachers to international schools to observe new methods.

Himalayan Voluntourism (HV) is a social enterprise dedicated to the socio-economic development of rural Nepal through the spirit of volunteerism. We believe in the power of transformation through voluntourism.Tourism is popular in Nepal and supports the Nepalese economy as an important revenue generator. Many tourists come to Nepal every year to experience its unique culture, adventure opportunities and the abundant nature. Combining tourism with social outreach provides a cultural experience that engages the participant in the local community… And it is transformative.
