Program Details

This is a great opportunity for volunteers who want to Teach English in Monasteries. There are several Tibetan refugees Camps and Monasteries that house hundreds of Tibetan kids taking Buddhist monk educational training in Kathmandu to preserve the amazing cultural richness of Tibet and Buddhism practice. Knowledge of English can be an enormous help to these kids to explore more scriptures written in English and circulate Buddhist teachings practice to the whole world.


Activities & Shift

Volunteers will be met at the airport by a Future Nepal representative holding a placard with volunteer’s name and Future Nepal on it. The representative will take volunteer to guest house. All we request to our volunteers please provide us your flight information as soon as possible so that a punctual pick-up can be arranged.

Upon Volunteers arrival in Kathmandu we offer 3 days to 1 week of orientation and training at Future Nepal office, depending on the type of programs.
