Iani de Kock


From 09/09/2009 to 28/09/2009

My placement with VIN was at the Karma Ghedin Onsa Choekerling nunnery about 40 minutes outside of Kathmandu.I signed up for a 4 weeks stay, which included the training period in which we got orientated about Nepali culture and language.

After training, I went to my placement, which was a small nunnery in the cleanmountain air. The nuns are very curious and I found them very enthusiastic to study and learn.I only taught two classes a day, but would hear then practising each night and they did a lot of effort. I grew very attached to them very quickly and am already making plans to come back as soon as possible. VIN’s support was excellent throughout and they were always there to help with any obstacle that occurred or to advise on treks and travel.

It was an excellent experience highly recommendable to everyone who would like to experience Nepali and Buddhist culture firsthand.
