Join our Educational Project as a Volunteer in Nepal

Go Volunteering in Nepal and be part of an innovative education solution in Nepal. Join us as a volunteer!

We’re looking for enthusiastic and motivated people with a strong desire to make a positive impact through education and social entrepreneurship.

Maya Universe Academy is a social entrepreneurship project whose mission is to improve access to quality education in rural communities.

Starting from a tent in the jungle with 15 students, the founders Manjil Rana and Yoon opened the first school in the Tanahun district in 2011. Today it’s a chain of free private schools where parents can pay in time instead of money by volunteering two days per month at the schools.

The long-term goal is for the schools to become fully self-sustainable through farming business and micro-enterprise projects.

If you are interested in volunteering please message us.

Students at Maya Universe Academy follow a unique and diverse curriculum, based on the national curriculum of Nepal and supplemented with various activity-based topics. It emphasizes the importance of community, and allows for creativity, independence, and critical thinking.

In response to the mega 2015 earthquakes, Maya Universe opened its hostel to board 25 children from earthquake-affected families and are given a full scholarship.

We embrace social responsibility and creative mindfulness to educate and inspire our students and their families to build community, gain greater independence, and transform their lives.
