Volunteers are needed to teach english to Tibetan refugees in Dharamsala, Northern India, the centre of the Tibetan exile government and the residence of H.H. Dalai Lama.
As a volunteer english teacher, you will work alongside permanent teachers to offer a chance of further education to young Tibetan adults. The main goal is to educate Tibetan refugees in India, in order to improve their work perspectives once they are back in Tibet. The school provides all meals and accommodation (private room).
