We are a small charity, stichting, set up by a group of teachers from the British School in the Netherlands. Some of us are now retired. We first visited North West Nepal in the Annapurna Conservation area in 2015 to run a 4 day training course for teachers from 12 schools in the area. Since then we have run annual courses and established a good working relationship with the schools, we remain in daily contact to offer support and ideas for teaching.
Here is our latest newsletter in this very strange Covid 19 year of 2020. In spite of the fact that the whole world has been turned upside down, our team has kept up continuous work to help our schools and the local people in and around the village of Ghachok. Read the newsletter to see what we have achieved thanks to your continued generosity and support: Teach Nepal Project Newsletter Autumn 2020
We are excited to announce that we have completed the libraries in 10 schools in and around the village of Ghachok. This has been achieved through fantastic team work. We are really grateful for all the fundraising that has taken place here in the Netherlands, and to our regular sponsors and we have also received donations from the UK, Doha and as far away as Australia.

In 2018 we formalised our work and registered our charity as Stichting Teach Nepal Project. We have established 10 libraries with good quality English language reading materials creating a welcoming space with newly decorated and furnished rooms. Our aim for this year is to upgrade the nursery facilities and provide good quality early learning materials.
In Nepal we are grateful for the support and guidance from several local charity groups. They have not only collected and delivered the books and resources we have sent, but have also organised the purchase of carpets, furniture and paint for the rooms that have been designated to be the libraries. With their advice and guidance we have achieved our aim to create a welcoming environment where students can access the resources and learn to enjoy reading.
Here are a list of our achievements so far: (click on the links)
