Happy International Women’s Day from the Tibetan Nuns Project!

Thanks to the wonderful support of Tibetan Nuns Project donors, over 700 nuns in 7 nunneries in India are now being educated, nourished, sheltered and empowered. Our supporters are enabling the nuns to reach their full potential.

The nuns’ journeys to their new homes in India were full of suffering and loss. They faced arrest, torture, frostbite and death on their escape from Tibet.

Tibetan Nuns Project supporters have helped give them refuge and a safe place to practice. They have helped to provide them with education and skills training to build sustainability. They have joined with other compassionate souls to give the nuns both community and new homes, from which they can reach out and help others.

From one of our sponsors:
“A donation to this cause benefits beyond helping just the nuns… it benefits the Tibetan culture, it benefits refugees from Tibet, it benefits education for women, it benefits the Buddhist religion and community and all of this spreads like a ripple of compassion for others beyond that community. This is not charity; it is an investment in humanity. — E.B, Auburn CA, Tibetan Nuns Project sponsor

Thank you to all our donors for your compassion in action and your investment in humanity. We hope that you will continue to support the nuns.

In gratitude,

Lisa Farmer

Executive Director

P.S. Can you help us? We always have nuns awaiting sponsorship. Just $1 a day helps provide food, clothing, shelter, education, health care and skills training. If you or someone you know can help these brave women or assist the nuns with special projects, such as fixing the walls, roof and plumbing at one of the nunneries, we would love your support.

Tara’s Vow

“There are many who wish to gain enlightenment in a man’s form,

And there are few who wish to work for the welfare of living beings in a female form.

Therefore may I, in a female body, work for the welfare of all beings,

until such time as all humanity has found its fullness.”
