As teachers, we choose to work with children because we love working with them. We choose this work because we believe that we can make a positive impact on their lives, which—we hope—will extend far beyond our time with them.
This can be a tough thing to teach. Often we just have to hope and wait to see if they put to use what we say and do. But Project Nepal offers an exception; here we have the phenomenal opportunity to not only serve the greater good, but to watch our children applying what we’ve taught them where it really counts.
I have the unparalleled privilege of coordinating Project Nepal, a service project with a simple goal: two communities helping each other. Our ACS Egham International School community raised awareness and funds for nearly a year to support Shree Mahendra Upper Primary School in Bhaktapur, which is just outside Central Kathmandu.
