Go for a unique volunteer trip for teaching English at a Buddhist monastery, located at Aarubari, Jorpati, Kathmandu. Since the young monks are passionate English students, you will enjoy teaching. At the same time, you will learn about the Buddhist philosophy of peace and compassion.
The young monks in Nepal want to learn English in order to further their academic and professional opportunities. At this volunteer placement, you will teach English in a monastery located within the peaceful highlands of the Kathmandu valley.
Buddhism is a religion based on the ideals of peace and compassion. As a volunteer at the monastery in Nepal you can learn much from the followers of Buddhism, especially from their mantra of a simple life. Therefore you will have the opportunity to get a close insight of Buddhist culture and spirituality. At the same time, your teaching will help the monks developing language skills and open new opportunities for their future.

You will be teaching at Buddhist monastery, located at Aarubari, Jorpati, Kathmandu. The athmosphere is very welcoming, and the young monks are highly motivated to learn English. While staying at the monastery with the monks, you will learn also about the Buddhist philosophy of peace and compassion.
Teaching English to the child/junior monks at the Monastery has been an interesting, inspiring and educational experience for me. I only hope my pupils experienced it the same way. The atmosphere in the monastery was very welcoming, peaceful and enjoyable and so were the people in it. – Lammert Lettinga
While learning English with you, the young monks will improve their English skills. For them, fluency in English will help bringing forward a brighter professional future. academic and professional opportunities.
You may also choose to teach English at a local school, also close to Kathmandu. Your presence will open hearts and minds to life outside of a small village where ideas of life beyond their small corner of the world are seldom generated. Teaching the students and inspiring the teachers with new methods will leave your legacy in place.
I spend a month teaching in a school in Kathmandu Nepal.
It is an amazing experience, especially if you want to put your teaching skills on the line.
I have learned not only that I love what I do, but also gained confidence and good experience.
You also get to understand a different culture and meet amazing people! – Antonia Bozzolo, Las Condes
