Monastery Program in Nepal
This program is one of our most popular in Nepal. Few other placements in the world offer the opportunity to work alongside Buddhist monks. As a volunteer, you will observe their unique monastery environment and help the monks communicate with the outside world. Do you want to learn more about life in a monastery? Do you want to learn and participate in meditative techniques and Buddhist teachings? Then this will be an incredible experience for you.
This program is designed for
Everyone with motivation
When Volunteering in our monastery placements you can teach English, Math, creative and fun activities or sports to young and older monks for 3-4 hours per day. If you have no experience, we have teaching materials that help you when needed. In return, the monks share their knowledge and culture with the volunteers. If you ask the monks, you can get the chance to learn meditation techniques and receive in-depth knowledge of the Buddhist culture. You will truly get involved in the life of a Buddhist monastery.
