As a volunteer, my stay was short but, due to the willingness and determination of the staff, I was able to pass the knowledge of current teaching and learning methods and issues.
I enjoyed my stay in HA to a level that my initial two month plan became five and my planning for a meaningful experience was fulfilled thanks to the wonderful people I met in and outside of the school.
As I reflect on my time here, more than anything, I am filled with admiration for the work these people are doing here and the very obvious and immediate benefits I can see the students enjoying.
The Heartland School is a very impressive organisation with strong roots in the local community of Bafal, Kathmandu, Nepal. We were very impressed with the quality of education at Heartland and the friendly atmosphere amongst students and teachers.
I can't hope to properly express my gratitude for you allowing us into your amazing school. . It's an unbelievable school with an atmosphere that encourages creativity and a love of learning. I feel very lucky to have spent those days at Heartland, and I could've only wished to have been able to stay there longer
