Teaching English to Buddhist Monks in Pokhara
More than 130,000 Tibetans live in exile
in India, Nepal, and Bhutan, and nearly 20 percent of those

still face many hurdles in Tibet's neighboring countries,
especially in Nepal. Education for Tibetan children is a
high priority and the biggest challenge for them. Primary
education schoolsócalled Tibetan Children's Villagesówere

support religious Tibetan practices and provides education
schooling in Buddhist philosophies as well as a variety of
other areas such as English and computer skills.

6. Volunteering in Nepal - Health
and Sanitation Program
ACDF Nepal aims to mobilize volunteers with health
backgrounds in rural places around Pokhara where people do
not have access to any health institute, as the government
is not able to provide adequate health services. On the
other hand, rural Nepali people are after reluctant to go to
the hospital and other modern health services because of
orthodox thinking, superstition, and other cultural
influnces. some Nepali people may visit a witch doctor when
they are suffering from an illness, so they sometimes die
without getting the benefit of modern medication. ACDF Nepal
is playing an active role in linking these rural people with
those around the world and within the country who are really
eagar to serve the many needy people in Nepal's rural areas.
