Our monastery is providing Wifi, simple vegetarian food and simple accommodation (Now we can accept Maximum 4 volunteers at the same time)
Volunteering in Nepal provides a life to transform experience in a truly amazing country. Our volunteers immerse themselves in Nepali-culture amid some of the most stunning scenery in the world while making a real and lasting contribution to the lives of locals in our Buddhist Monastery. Our location high in the hills close to Kathmandu City gives us the best opportunity to welcome volunteers.
As a small monastery we don’t have a wide range of volunteering opportunities but if you can teach English to our monks or even can work on health care or art you are most welcomed here. By nature, monastery life is both simple and rewarding. The day starts early, often well before dawn, and much of the morning is devoted to prayer. Usually, teaching modern classes such as English starts from 10:00 am to 16:00 pm with a break in between for lunch at 12:00. During their stay at the monastery, volunteers will have plenty of opportunities to get to know the monks and Buddhism. The monks here are invariably open and friendly, and very happy to discuss Buddhism, spirituality, life, and the world in general. The time can easily be passed in deep discussion. The monks own English skills probably grew with the help of the teachers and volunteers during these useful cultural conversations.
The main duty of volunteers is to teach English. The age of students ranges from 7 to 18 years old, so ability can vary significantly. With class division from nursery to class 8, it provides volunteers with an opportunity to teach at every level and use a variety of teaching styles. In fact, variety really is the spice of life here. Volunteers are often left to their own devices and will be responsible for planning lessons, conducting workshops, and organizing games and other activities. Outside of class time, volunteers may also be asked to help supervise extra-curricular activities and sports.
