An Exchange Of Inspirations
Pramila Rai

What if your first job was changing the nation?

The Fellows of Teach For Nepal are doing just that, reaching out to students in different parts of the country. Almost two years since the first batch of TFN Fellows headed to public schools in Lalitpur District, there are now 49 Fellows who are doing their best to impart quality education to students. Twenty one female Fellows and 28 male Fellows are now teaching English, Math and Science subjects to secondary schoolchildren in Lalitpur and Sindhupalchowk districts.
Studying Abroad Versus Studying In The Country
KATHMANDU, Nov 22: You no longer feel surprised if you hear about a friend or relative going abroad for higher education. A better education system, independence and exposure to cultural diversity, among others, are what many Nepali students cite as reasons to go to a foreign university. However, many youngsters studying in Nepal share that they, too, have many reasons to feel content about having chosen to continue their education here.

In this edition of chitchat, we sat down with five youths to hear about their opinions regarding education abroad and in the country.
His Life Is Wrecked, But He Chooses To Fight
Paramita Kandel
It was a fine morning, and as always, I was rushing to college. Suddenly, I noticed something unusual 15 meters ahead.

It was a boy. But the way he walked was unusual. His legs dragging, his hands half paralyzed, with a faint emotion on his face. His feet flung onto the ground and air. He looked as if he would trip over any second. But he didn’t because it was how he had walked since childhood.
Educating Children On DRR
KATHMANDU, Nov 22: Yuwalaya, a youth-led organization, held a discussion over materials developed for disaster risk reduction (DRR) education for children, in Lalitpur on Wednesday. The organization has been running a project under the funding of UNICEF to develop education and information materials for child-focused DRR education.

Representatives of around 40 national and international government and non-government organizations participated in the interaction program.
Waiting On Tables Not A Bad Calling
KATHMANDU, Nov 20: Rajan Nepal, 25, who came to Kathmandu from Dhading seven years ago, joined OR2K Restaurant in Thamel to work as a waiter. He initially chose the job just to earn some pocket money. But the job became a passion for him over the years. Now he’s committed to working full time at the restaurant and is very content with his decision.

“My profession has helped me to build up a lot of confidence. The job involves dealing with both local and international clients,” he says. He further adds that this way, he has made many friends from different parts of the world. And working in the hospitality sector has given him a chance to learn about different lifestyles and cultures, which have made his life interesting, he emphasizes.
