Overall Rating:/ 10Very fulfilling volunteer opportunity!
Teaching the young Buddhist monks a bit of English involved a great deal of mutual learning—
Nepal is a bit hectic but it is beautiful!
Project & Staff
Staff at the monastery was very caring and easy to work with. The coordinators were delightful - including Keshab and Nicole!
Don’t wait for a proper schedule for teaching lessons. Get to know the monks and be willing to teach according to their demanding schedule between meditation, chores, meals, and other obligations. A 1-on-1 tutoring format worked well to supplement learning.
