Working in Monastery
Nepal is the birth place of Gautam Buddha, the Light of Asia. There are hundreds of monasteries that are being occupied by the Nepalese & Tibetan monks. More than 20% of the exiled Tibetan monks are taking shelter in Nepal. It is really difficult for the monks to be well educated here. They desire to learn English language and the incidence happening in the outer world, but they are not getting proper chance. Your small contribution can bring a big change in the lives of the monks. You can teach them English language; share your knowledge on first aid, environmental cleanliness, health & hygiene, Human Rights, etc. You can learn & experience Buddhist philosophy, and Buddhist way of life from the monks. In the monasteries, the monks strictly follow the Buddhist philosophy in their daily lives. So, it may be totally different from your daily routines. By joining this program, you can experience strictly followed way of life of monks in the monasteries.
Our volunteers and interns can work in the Monastery in Nepal for 2 to 4 hours a day teaching English. They can take part in other activities like worshiping and cleaning in and around the Monastery or playing with the children. Teaching projects in Monastery is different from regular school projects.
