At Trek to Teach, our mission is to increase the educational opportunities for students in rural communities of developing nations.
Trek to Teach is committed to providing educational opportunities to students registered in elementary, middle, and high schools that will position them to build careers and, by extension, live richer, fuller personal lives. It provides those educational opportunities in third world and emerging countries.
Since the organization is still in its formative stages, it is focusing on teaching English as a second language to students in schools in Western Nepal. However, the Board intends to move as rapidly as possible to building, upgrading, and furnishing schools in the region. When the organization has developed a critical mass of experience and resources, it will offer similar humanitarian services in other countries such as Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myan Mar, India, and Sri Lanka.
