Today's classrooms need to equip children with healthy mindsets and a positive approach to education. This is particularly the case in areas such as rural Nepal, where access to education is often limited. Unfortunately, corporal punishment continues to be practiced in some schools in Nepal, and teachers use traditional teaching methods that do not effectively engage students. Karma Flights aims to tackle this issue by working with teachers in rural Nepal, training them and empowering them to be effective agents of change in their schools.
KarmaFlights has partnered with a local NGO, National Foundation for Skilled Development of Teachers (NFORSDT), as well as KPZ University in The Netherlands to develop an effective teacher training program. Teachers who participate in the program learn how to bring new teaching techniques into their classrooms that reject corporal punishment and take into account different learning styles. In this way, KarmaFlights empowers teachers to provide high quality education.
