Our Monastery volunteer program in Nepal involves teaching monks in Nepal. You will teach a group of young monk students from various background English, sports and computer skills. The monks living in the monastery belong to the families whose faith is Buddhism. Often the children are from the poor families from the mountainous regions of Nepal. The monastery provides the young monks with accommodation, meals and education. Additionally, being in the monastery young monks also learn and study Buddhism and perform various rituals.

What is involved
Although monks spend most of their day in ceremonial practice and worship, you will have the chance to offer your own program of teaching activities during their two hours break around noon, depending on the need the time can be extended up to 6 hours a day. Generally the monks are aged between 5 years to 18 years. However, sometimes the older monks above in their 20’s take part in the classes as well. The monks highly appreciate this worldly change in their schedule and are excited to learn from and about you! We invite you to create playful, creative and fun teaching activities, both giving the students an opportunity to learn from you as well as giving you a close-up look into the daily life at the monastery.
here are very few teaching resources for teaching (generally basic class rooms with a blackboard) so please be mindful of that. Classes will involve basic speaking, reading and writing English as well as some basic grammar sessions. We ideally prefer students who have completed a TEFL to be able to work in such an environment, however anyone who is keen to be a teacher or with good English skills should also apply.
