This is a great opportunity for volunteers who want to Teach English in Monasteries. There are several Tibetan refugees Camps and Monasteries that house hundreds of Tibetan kids taking Buddhist monk educational training in Katmandu to preserve the amazing cultural richness of Tibet and Buddhism practice. Knowledge of English can be an enormous help to these kids to explore more scriptures written in English and circulate Buddhist teachings practice to the whole world.
As a volunteer you will be placed in a monastery where you will Teach English to monks. Depending on monastery size you will expect the number of student’s monks from 15 with moderate or beginners level English. The monks study Buddhist as a major subject. English, Nepalese and others are optional in order to improve their additional language skill. Volunteers will teach English to the monks, both young and old. Volunteers can also have a chance to participate in some monasteries run programs like meditation, praying and other cultural celebrations.
You do not need any formal teacher training or experience to participate, but whatever experience you do have will be taken into account when arranging your day-to-day activities.
