Affordable volunteering in Nepal with IKPVA in a Buddhist monastery teaching English to young monks.
English proficiency is in high demand in Nepal for the furthering of academic and professional opportunities. As a volunteer on teaching English you will be placed in a monastery located within the peaceful highlands of the Kathmandu valley.
Buddhism is a religion based on the ideals of peace and compassion. There is much to learn from the followers of Buddhism their mantra of a simple life. This project provides a truly special opportunity for our volunteers to get a close insight of Buddhist culture and spirituality, while also making a contribution to bettering the lives of the monks.
If you choose to volunteer here you will share your knowledge and English language skills in exchange for the unique experience of witnessing and sharing in the inner workings of a Buddhist monastery. By giving your support in developing their proficiency in English language and grammar you will be playing a vital role in growing and broadening the futures of these young men.
Also, if you have any other talent or skills that you could share with the monks then our local coordinator will be happy to provide you with some space for that.
You are expected to have a high level of proficiency and fluency in English, although you won’t be required to provide proof in terms of language tests or degrees. Volunteers must have good grammatical accuracy. Applicants must respect Buddhist values and the way of life of a monk.
