Current Needs

We are extremely grateful to our supporters around the world for your help with our wish list of current needs and projects.

Current projects for which we need funding for are:

  1. SCHOOL BUS AND JEEP: The nuns at the remote Dorjee Zong Nunnery in Zanskar need a school bus to take the younger nuns to school 10 km away so they can continue their studies.
  2. REJUVENATE SHUGSEP: This important Nyingma nunnery, which traces its practices to some of the most illustrious female practitioners in Tibetan history, was re-established in India. The buildings are aging and the 85 nuns who live there need your help to keep the nunnery strong and healthy.
  3. 2019 JANG GONCHOE: This year marks the 25th annual inter-nunnery debate called the Jang Gonchoe, a vital educational opportunity for hundreds of nuns from India and Nepal. Please help nuns attend by donating towards food and travel costs.
  4. DEBATE ENDOWMENT FUND: You can ensure a bright future for the annual inter-nunnery debate by making a gift to our special endowment fund to ensure that the Jang Gonchoe debate event will continue and grow for years to come.
  5. 2019 GESHEMA EXAMS: Help the nuns take their 2019 Geshema exams by donating for their travel costs to the exam site and for their food during the final study period and exam time.
  6. TANTRIC STUDIES HOUSING FOR GESHEMAS: For the first time in history, Tibetan Buddhist nuns have the opportunity to study Tantric Buddhism, but the Geshemas need a housing block at Dolma Ling Nunnery and Institute.
  7. MAINTAIN THE NUNNERIES: Keep the nunnery buildings sound and strong by helping us provide regular upkeep and repair, such as painting and roof work.
  8. TEACHERS’ SALARIES: Help fund 10 to 15 teachers at Tibetan Buddhist nuns in India, so that the nuns can receive equal education to monks and become leaders and teachers.
  9. SPONSOR A NUN: Sponsor a nun for just $1 a day and provide her with food, shelter, education, health care, and opportunity.
