What Previous Volunteer who have Teached in Nepal has meant to me
23 February 2002
Dear Surendra, fellow teachers and students,
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity of a lifetime to be part of your school over the past five months.
I have learnt the joy and happiness that teaching children can bring. It was surprising to me that the children had such a good understanding of English. It has been a pleasure to teach them some aspects of my culture and learnt so much about theirs. I gained many experiences and learnt to love so much of Nepal through the children.
The teachers were also very welcoming and I have made some lifetime friends from many members of the school family.
To Surendra, keep up the good and important work that you are doing in the school. The children, being the future of Nepal, are a credit to you! Nepal needs bright and educated young people. My volunteering experience has been a very fruitful and happy one and it is with sadness that I leave. Only for now, though, as I intend to come back regularly!
