VINLMTV07A – Teaching English at Buddhist Monastery
VIN’s Teaching English at Buddhist monastery/
nunnery project aims to give volunteers/interns
a true taste of life at the monastery. It aims for
an exchange between the religious members
of a certain community and foreigners from a
drastically different community that have just
one thing in common: the eagerness to learn.
You may learn about Buddhist culture, while
the monks and nuns may learn the English
language, an extremely important asset for
them.
Possible Daily activities
• Creating lesson plans for your daily teaching.
• Teach regular English classes.
• Interacting with the children of the Buddhist monastery.
• Help the other teachers advance their English. Teach basic sanitation/hygiene.

ACCOMMODATION AND FOOD

The program fee includes accommodation
and food for the duration of your
volunteering or internship.
VIN has a hostel which can accommodate
up to 35 people, with up to five bunk beds
per room.
During the volunteer induction, volunteers
will share these rooms.
If the hostel is unavailable, VIN organises
accommodation close-by in a hotel or
different hostel.
During your stay at the host family or
monastery/nunnery your sleeping arrangements may be private to shared.
Bathroom and toilet facilities are shared with your host family or monks/ nuns.
Hygiene standards vary from family to family/place to place. Sometimes it might be
very basic and hot water might only be available sometimes.
We kindly ask volunteers to be flexible and be prepared to cope with non-western
standards.
In regards to food, volunteers will receive three meals a day, in Nepali standard.
The main dishes are rice based and daal bhat (lentil soup and rice), vegetables and
curries are staple foods.
Nepalese people rarely eat meat or fish and have a mainly vegetarian diet.
Eating bread is also uncommon.
If you wish to supplement your foods with more variety (such as types of vegetables,
eggs or fruits) then the cost lies with you but host families are happy to prepare the
extra food items for you.
In the host families and monasteries/ nunnery you will share their food and please
inform us if have any specific allergies or dietary requirements.
