Internship’s Now available in beautiful Nepal with Wonderwise
You can be a sparkle of light in the life of Nepali children while learning a lot from these smiling children who have very little but appreciate so much.

You will inspire and be inspired by encouraging Nepali children and their teachers as you understand their point of view in a challenging educational environment

Wonderwise is currently working with many public schools in Kathmandu city and remote areas of Nepal.

Wonderwise has built up many contacts from kindergarten to secondary education at both small and large schools so we see many intern opportunities.

Intern Volunteer:  As an internship-volunteer you will work in state schools where children of all levels of society receive free education. A unique experience!

The opportunity for teachers for kindergarden, primary education and secondary education to teach Nepali children. As a volunteer of Wonderwise, you will also support the expressionbook-program in your school once a week. The responsible for the internship and coordinator of Wonderwise will guide and help you where needed. 

Respecting and knowing the importance of the mothertongue, Wonderwise doesn't want to invert Nepalese medium into English medium schools. But an internship of a foreign student-teacher can offer some interesting challenges for the students and teachers in government schools.

In these state schools Nepali children from 6 years of age have 1 hour of English class every day. The challenge at this time is not to teach only a subject, but also to help improve the standard of English for the children. Nevertheless, your level of Nepalese will improve also ;-)

In this setting, you are using principles of the CLIL-method (Content and Language Integrated Learning) while teaching content and language at the same time. 

Please note only students with teacher training qualification may apply.
Native and non-native English speakers can apply. Knowledge and fluency of the English language is required as you will understand.

Wonderwise is a non-profit organisation* working in a wide range of educational settings using Plastic Arts and Free Expression as Therapy and Personality Development Strategy.

The project introduces the Art of free ‘expression’ into schools first by providing teacher training and student sessions. Wonderwise provides the raw materials and expression books and follow-up. The expression books have been developed by Wonderwise and can be adapted to any situation and translated to any language. Wonderwise books are an ideal way to introduce free expression through Art in schools and organizations all over the world.

Currently (2017) Wonderwise is very active in Nepal. After the major Earthquake in April 2015 Griet and Sudhir launched the Wonderwise project in Nepal starting with an emergency-program in the months following the Earthquake and aftershocks. Then they started a sustainable project with sponsorship from Belgium. The Wonderwise program has now been introduced into the curriculum of some Nepalese state schools. A motivated Nepalese team is in charge due the kind sponsorship from Belgium funds.

Due to the great success of the first book Wonderwise is working on a second, focusing on children with risk of suffering from (post) traumatic stress. Early examples of this book and educational manuals are ready for review. (Feb 2017)
