KATHMANDU— Teach For Nepal (TFN), a campaign launched in 2013 to address the inequality in education in Nepal, is all set to host a global conference from Wednesday.
The global conference will be held among 400 participants of 64 various countries.
The theme for the conference is “Community at the Center,” which stresses the involvement of community for improving the quality of education.
Majority of volunteers shared TFN’s slogan that, “What if your first job was to change the nation?’ had inspired them to join the organisation and to go to remote places to teach unprivileged students.
Apart from regular classes, the volunteer teachers also offer additional classes in the school or at their dwellings without charging any fee.
