Participate to teach young Buddhist monks English and various other subjects and interact with them in a serene and calm place which will soothe your mind. The main goal of this project is to give an opportunity for the rural monks to improve their proficiency of spoken and written English.

Overview

This project will be based at a Buddhist temple in a rural area named Hanguranketha where young monks are preparing to propagate Buddhism throughout the world for which they need to learn English. The main goal is to improve the proficiency of spoken and written English among them. You will spend most of your time teaching monks to read and write in English.

The project was started with the intention of increasing proficiency in written and spoken English among Buddhist monks. Over time, we have noticed a vast improvement in the communication skills of the monks. The monks also really enjoy being a part of the program.
