The mission of the Dream School is to prepare the hearts, minds, and souls of students by providing excellent education and inspiring them to be independent thinkers, problem solvers, and passionate learners who will be difference makers in the world. At the Dream School, the learning process not only focuses on gaining knowledge but also on developing critical and creative thinking skills. Students are shown unconditional love and are encouraged to have respect for themselves and others so that they will be able to reach their full potential.
We would love to share some recent updates and prayer requests from the Dream School!
It is the middle of monsoon season, and Nepal continues to get buckets of rain. Every year people lose their houses, roads collapse, and daily life is disrupted because of landslides caused by the rain. Dream School students and staff experienced this firsthand when a chunk of the road on the bus route collapsed overnight into the river below. This forced a change to the route, making the trip to the school two hours longer for some children. Since then, the Dream School has purchased a third bus, and now the children only walk a short distance in order to take the original bus route. Workers are trying to shore up the remaining side of the hill and the nearby bridge. Please pray for the work to be done well and for the continued safety of the staff and children. They are trying to keep a normal routine as much as possible, but the challenges in Nepal keep making it difficult for them!
We have found potential land to purchase for the future expansion of the Dream School into a permanent school building. There are still a few things required before we can proceed, including raising the necessary funds to make the purchase. However, as the Dream School continues to grow and expand, there is a tremendous need for a new location, land, and school building.
We are continually looking for English-speaking instructors to teach a well-rounded curriculum. Dream School teachers teach a variety of subjects to local students, in accordance with their personal experience, expertise, education, and interests. Due to the nature of the work, Dream School teachers must be willing to commit to living overseas for a minimum of 2.5 years, and they must be prepared to learn the language and culture. Apply for a Dream School teaching position today!
- Continued wisdom for teachers and administrators as they work.
- Clear direction as decisions about curriculum and growth are being made.
- Increased enrollment for next year so that more children will have the opportunity to receive an excellent education.
