About Monk Teaching Project

Providing education to Monks is one of the most sought after activities by volunteers from all over the world. A lot of children come to these institutions to get formal and spiritual ed- ucation.

Specific conditions for this type of project activitie

These monk-teaching centres usually have accommodation facility for their students, and it means the volunteers can contribute to a more significant period each day if they so wished.
The age group, the students, are from 8-25 years and they have a different level of grade & education. Day to day activities may include:
