Overview of Teaching English to Monks in Nepal Program

More than 150,000 Tibetans live in exile in India, Nepal, and Bhutan. Of those exiled, nearly 20 percent live in Nepal, where they are now free to practice their religion and rebuild their cultural heritage. As a result of this, there are several large monasteries in and around the surrounding mountains of Kathmandu where monks live and devote their lives to Buddhism.

As of lately, with globalization and other developments, there is a great need and desire for young monks to learn English. As there are no English teachers in the monasteries, our volunteers stay there with the monks and teach daily classes. Volunteers really enjoy this volunteer abroad teaching English to Monks in Nepal project, as they not only get to learn about, observe, and even participate (if they choose) in the culture and Buddhist practices in the monastery, but they also find the monks to be enthusiastic students and incredibly appreciative of their work!
