Kathmandu - Teaching at Buddhist Monasteries

About Your Location

Your new home will be an authentic Buddhist monastery. According to availability, you can choose between different monasteries in or around Kathmandu. While the nearest one is just within Kathmandu, the furthest takes a 12-hour (overnight) bus ride and 4 hours of hiking to get to. Did we already say it’s authentic?

We take care of the (public) transport to the monastery and back at the beginning and end of your program.

Aims & Objectives

To help teach monks English and reversely, to get you immersed into the lifestyle in a monastery and to help you learn about Buddhism. Please note, however, that we cannot guarantee that you will be able to learn a lot about Buddhism at the monastery from the monks themselves, because only few monks can communicate well in English and it depends on whether they have time for you. In any case you will have a very good chance to observe the practices of Buddhism in Nepal.

Weekly Schedule & Activities

Introduction Day
Your project starts with an introduction day on the first Monday including a tour of the area surrounding the accommodation, available facilities, cultural "do's and don'ts", safety concerns as well as some basic local language lessons.

Monday to Friday
From Monday to Friday you will teach different subjects, including English, to the monks, both young and old, for about 2 to 3 hours every day. Apart from this activity, you are free to also take part in other activities such as kitchen gardening or work at the library etc.

Public Holidays

This project isn’t affected by public holidays, but there may be slight changes to the Culture Week if it overlaps with public holidays:

05 July
04, 11, 15 & 21 August

Mandatory Volunteer Requirements

Minimum age of 18
Basic level of competency in English

Police clearance certificate on sign-up
Copy of CV/resume on sign-up
Passport copy on sign-up
Travel & medical insurance
4 passport size photographs (that can also be taken locally at the start of your program)

What Makes a Good Volunteer?

Volunteers need to be flexible and keep an open mind concerning their placements as situations can arise beyond our control which could require you to be placed at a different project than the one you have initially chosen. We will of course always do our utmost to fulfill your initial wishes but do remember that where you are going is quite different from where you are coming and as such one should be prepared for things not always going according to plan.

Volunteering and intercultural travel share a common trait: the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. This program is designed for proactive individuals and groups that are prepared to adapt to the local environment and its current needs. Naturally, the scheduling and activities of our program are subject to change. Alterations in activities are mainly due to changes in local conditions, which we believe is part of what makes overseas programs the interesting adventure and incredible learning experience that they are.

How Long Should I Volunteer?

Our projects range from 1 week up to approx. 30 weeks. Projects have a specified minimum stay, then it’s up to you how long you can commit. In our experience the longer you stay the more you will gain, as your understanding of the project broadens and you take on more responsibilities. Every volunteer will be given a certificate of appreciation at the end of their stay as a symbol of volunteering stay.

Project Accommodation at the Monastery
Rooms at the monasteries are shared normally between 4 to 6 participants with shared bathroom facilities. Wi-Fi is very limited at the monasteries. Please note that in Asia, cold showers are the norm.

We have monasteries in different locations: Kathmandu, Pharping, Namobuddha and Serlo monestary in the Everest region. In Kathmandu, the monastery is in Tinchuli, Boudha. When teaching at Boudha monastery, you will be staying at the volunteer house in Kathmandu because this monastery is damaged by the earthquake meaning there is no space to stay. For the other monasteries (Pharping, Namobuddha and Serlo) you will be staying at monastery.

Serlo monastery is the farthest one, and it takes about 12 hours by jeep and an overnight stay in Phaplu in addition to about a 4-hour hike the following day to reach the Serlo Monastery. The monastery in Namobuddha is about a 4-hour drive from Kathmandu, whereas the monastery in Pharping is about 2 hours by car from the capital.

Accommodation During Culture Week
If you choose to include the Culture Week, will stay at the volunteer house in Kathmandu during this week. The volunteer house is 5 km away from the city centre and has rooms with 4 to 6 people sharing on a single gender basis and space for up to 36 volunteers. The modern bathrooms with hot showers are shared with your roommates. There is a modern kitchen and dining room, a frigerator where you can store food and beverages, a fully furnished living room, live-in staff on call 24/7, a garden with a comfortable, covered area for relaxing including a smoking area as well as 24/7 security. Other amenities available at the centre are a TV with SKY, DVD player and Wi-Fi. Unfortunately the internet connection might occasionally be slow and irregular. Laundry facilities are available at an additional fee. The nearest ATM and supermarket are located a 15-minute walk away from your accommodation.

Please note:
In the winter season it can get very cold.
It is not common for hostels and volunteer accommodation to provide heating, we would therefore recommend you take a warm sleeping bag or silk sleeping bag liner with you for extra warmth. Extra blankets are available locally, please make sure you ask for additional blankets, if you are feeling cold.

Måltider

Local (vegetarian) dishes on site, 3 meals a day during weekdays, 2 meals a day during weekends.

At the monasteries only tea is served, no coffee.

Observera att

Dress Code
Casual dress is appropriate during your time at the school, however, no see-through clothes or low-cut tops are permitted.

What to Bring
Toilet paper, towels, toiletries, mosquito nets and mosquito repellant are NOT provided so you will have to bring these along with you. Please also bring hiking shoes and tidy clean clothes for temple visits, and take care of malaria precautions.

Visa
Please remember to take care of the visa arrangements on time.

SIM Card
We highly recommend buying a cheap local SIM Card for your whole time in Nepal, not only for your own personal safety, but also for easier and cheaper communication with the other volunteers, staff and family back home, and especially if you are traveling to us by yourself. You can usually get one during the Culture Week, if you've decided to include it. You will have to have 1 passport size photograph and a copy of the passport with your visa to get a SIM Card.
