YTA is associated with some Monasteries in Nepal. Monastery is a center for learning Buddhism. In these monasteries monks get the education of self realization, patience, teachings of lord Buddha and meditation techniques. These monasteries programs are kind of exchanging the education to each other. The beneficiaries in these monasteries are from various age groups like 03 years to 3.
As a volunteer in this Monk teaching project, you will primarily work as English instructors in the schools of a Tibetan Children’s Village. In addition to English teaching for 3-4 hours per day, volunteers will assist in other school extra curricular activities and administration. In the evening, you can organize games, drawing, singing, dancing, and other creative activities. Morning and late evening time is free. If you love Buddhism, this is the perfect time to join meditation, rituals, prays, and songs with the Buddhist monks. This project gives you the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in Buddhist religion and lifestyle.
