2. 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 exiled live in Nepal.

Education for Tibetan children is a high priority and the biggest challenge for them. Primary education schoolsócalled Tibetan Children's Villagesówere established by the Tibetan community in Nepal.

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.
