CLASSROOM CONNECTION (plus above rewards) – TIEs will establish a “pen pal” relationship between a Nepali class and an elementary or secondary class of your choosing (it could be your own class if you are a teacher). The two classes will get to know each other through interactive media, i.e. letters, emails, and Skype chats -- a great intercultural learning opportunity! We will match the class you chose with a Nepali class as close in age as possible.
