Education Volunteers teach classes 5-8 in rural government schools, and the project has three primary focus areas: 1). Building the capacity of Nepali English Teachers so they can teach English more effectively; 2). Increasing English skills among students in grades 5-8; and 3). Strengthening community support for English language learning.

The target communities of the project are rural smallholder farming families, particularly women and children. The project focuses on nutrition-sensitive agriculture and the key components of the framework are soil conservation/management, bio-intensive gardening, fruit tree cultivation, and nutrition education.
