I will be travelling for four weeks to Pokhara, Nepal to teach English to young Buddhist monks. A large number of these students are Tibetans in exile wishing to practice their religion without fear of persecution. Often, Tibetans and Nepalese children are forced to work as child laborers and consequently are deprived of an education and/or the opportunity to pursue a Buddhist life style. It is my hope to help facilitate their right to an education and cultural activities through supporting places like the monastery at which I will be volunteering in Pokhara that provides a home free of violence and oppression and an education for these children who would otherwise be denied it. Unfortunately, transportation costs are far from inexpensive. I would greatly appreciate your support in purchasing my plane ticket, paying the cost of staying at the monastery and hopefully donating some of the money I raise to the cause. Thank you so much!
