Maya Universe Academy is a social entrepreneurship project whose mission is to improve access to quality education to rural communities in Nepal as a response to the failed public school system and unaffordable private schools
Established in 2011, Maya Universe now has 3 schools, including one boarding school with over 400 students. The exchange of time from parents helps the schools sustainability and growth. The parents time is used in agriculture, animal husbandry and handicrafts, from which products are sold into market at profit for the school. Maya aims to provide education to more students and increase the accessibility to quality education in more locations around Nepal.
We are currently looking for qualified teachers for long term periods (minimum 3 months).
At Maya we provide 2 Nepali meals and a lunch snack daily. We live in a hostel environment, simple bedding is provided. Private rooms in village homes are also available on a first come first served basis.
Transport from Kathmandu to Tanahun is available upon request at a price of 120$
15$ per day covers food, accommodation and a contribution to paying local staff salaries. Long term volunteers staying over 3 months can stay for free thereafter (after 90 days).
Scholarships for long term volunteers available. Apply at firstname.lastname@example.org
