Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
It’s a tradition of Buddhist of sending to their children (Monk/nun) to the Monastery. Their level of English is very poor compare to other school children. Most of them are from poor families throughout Nepal. There are about 130 monks in Monastery ranging between 4 years and 18 years old. Most of the parents send their children to monastery for the sake of the better living condition and education.
Volunteers will get opportunity to teach English to the Monks/Nuns. You will work under the supervision of monastery teacher/administrator and get memorable experience. Volunteer can participate in various activities that occurred within the Monastery.

It is recommended all the volunteers to take Nepali language class which helps communication during the placement with the staff and the students.
