Become a Fellow

“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.”

-Barack Obama

Wouldn’t it be great if you could change the lives of some children forever? Wouldn’t it be great if the journey you took to change lives changes your life forever? Wouldn’t it be great if the more you teach, the more you learn? What if we tell you that you can experience the answers to all three of the “wouldn’t it”s? Come join us and we will help you change the lives of others.

HDI’s “Become a Fellow” program is an opportunity for motivated individuals of Nepal to serve as a teacher for six months, and change the lives of the students, in remote villages of Dolpa, and bring positive growth in the community. The fellows will have a unique experience as they expose and engage themselves in the program. Some of the major responsibilities of the Fellows are:

  •       Enhance the quality of education and carry out the necessary duties of a teacher
  •       Create a meaningful connection with the students, parents, and the villagers
  •       Make reports about the experience, school, students, and parents
  •       Conduct School related extracurricular activities 
  •       Engage with the community to monitor and manage school

Eligibility For this program:

  •     Must have a valid Nepali Citizenship
  •     Willingness to commit a minimum of 6 months
  •     Minimum education of +2 HSEB or equivalent

 The fellows will go on a journey into the mystical, magical land of Dolpo by enduring rigorous physical challenges as they will have to trek for about eight days leaving behind all the luxuriates and experiencing out of comfort adventures. They will be walking for 8 to 10 hours every day, crossing rivers, climbing and crossing high mountain-passes and in the meantime be seeing terrains, vegetation, buildings, lifestyle, culture like they have never seen. Upon reaching their destination, the fellows will be residing all by themselves, with a few staff, managing the kids, the school, and themselves.
There you will meet one of the most loving, caring, and nicest people you have ever met that are going to help you settle. As this region is one of the most unexplored and untouched, you will go through a path of self-exploration and self-realization like you have never before, and may even discover who you are. You will immerse yourself in a life-long relationship with the people, the lifestyle, and the culture that you will forever cherish. 
All travel, food, and lodging expenses of the fellows will be covered and they will also receive a monthly stipend for their valuable service and contribution to Dolpo.
