I spent a month in Kathmandu, Nepal, thanks to the belgian agency SVI and the help of We Volunteer's agent Bhagawan. He was an amazing help during my project and made sure I was well looked after. The monastery I stayed at was high in the mountains near the jungle, which made for a unique scenery of the volunteering work I had to do.
The children were all wonderful in vastly different ways, and teaching them English was such a fun experience - especially since they taught me as much as I taught them, too. There's a lot of human contact when working with the nuns that I'd never really had elsewhere. There's a lot I didn't expect which made this trip an unforgettable one, as the city is gorgeous and the people simply very welcoming!
