My time in Ladakh with Volunteer Ladakh was one I will never forget. I spent my time teaching English at a Buddhist nunnery with girls aged 4 - 16 and at another Senior Buddhist School with girls aged 11 - 23. Like with most things, the more you put in, the more you get out. To volunteers I would say - invest time and energy into the students and the work you’re doing there. Take the time to learn some of the language - your efforts will go far. And try to help with the little or big daily tasks in and around your homestay or monastery. For me Ladakh was so many things. It was a step out of the rat race. It gave me some perspective on my life and values. It was a gift to be a part of a community that’s not driven by consumerism but is rich in culture, meaning and respect. I don’t think you can get that from just passing through somewhere. It was a different, rewarding and extraordinary experience. I adore Ladakh and it’s people. It’s a special place.
