The Oda Foundation is partnering with Collaborative Schools Network (CSN) to implement an enhanced set of curriculum for the school’s grade one students, therefore an extended period of time learning about the CSN method will be required prior to departure for Kalikot.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Working with our education staff (the public school teaching staff) to provide teacher trainings, curriculum design assistance, and overall school management assistance
  • Communicating effectively in Nepali with our local team
  • Communicating effectively in English with various staff members and foreign Fellows

  • Developing leadership and managerial skills in a position with high authority and responsibility
  • Gaining access to the operational necessities of running a nonprofit organization both in Nepal and in America
  • Enhancing your cultural and practical knowledge of Mid-Western Nepal
  • Being at the forefront of development implementation in Kalikot
