The mission of Maya Universe Academy is to improve access to quality education in rural communities in Nepal through a free private school education. It is a response to the failed public school system and unaffordable price of private schools.
We are currently looking for qualified teachers for long term periods (minimum 3 months).
We live in a hostel environment and 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
We provide 2 Nepali meals and a lunch snack daily.
$15 per day covers food, accommodation and a contribution to paying local staff salaries.
Long term volunteers staying over 3 months (90 days) can stay for free thereafter.
Scholarships for long term volunteers available. Apply at firstname.lastname@example.org
School stationary, children's clothes, teaching materials, board games, and first aid supplies
It's recommended to bring a sleeping bag (a very light one for summer months and a thick one for winter months). A water bottle is useful.
Established in 2011, Maya Universe now has 3 schools, including one boarding school with over 400 students. Volunteers help the school's sustainability and growth. The volunteer's time is used in agriculture, animal husbandry, and handicrafts, from which products are sold into the market at a profit for the school. Maya aims to provide an education to more students and to increase the accessibility to quality education in more locations around Nepal.
