If you are looking for a fulfilling and enriching way to spend your winter term in January 2018, this might be a great opportunity for you.
We will be working with Maya Universe Academy. It is Nepal's first free private school and is organized and supported by a substantial collaboration between parents of students, and the enterprising individuals who envisioned Maya into being. Parents volunteer (infrastructure development, kitchen duties, etc.) at the school instead of paying money to have their children attend. During your time there you might assist with gardening, farming, construction, tutoring, or execute an idea you might come up with (or a mixture of these). You will concurrently have the opportunity to learn about Nepal, its beautiful culture, its friendly people and how a sustainable community-run school works.
You must apply by October 3. Please attend an information session to learn more:
• Information Session #1: 1 p.m., September 15 in King 306
• Information Session #2: 1 p.m., September 24 in King 306
