Help the Nuns Maintain the Nunneries

The Tibetan Nuns Project supports 7 nunneries in India. These large, complex institutions are similar to university campuses, with classrooms, dormitories, kitchens, prayer halls, libraries, and more.

The problem is that the nuns are mostly Tibetan refugees living in an exile community that is struggling to survive and that has very few resources. Moreover, the climate of northern India, with its torrential monsoon rains, heat, occasional cold spells, and heavy snows in the far north, is very hard on the nunnery buildings and infrastructure. There is the additional problem of damage due to wood-eating insects and other animals, such as monkeys.

While the nuns work hard to maintain the nunnery complexes, they need financial support to keep the nunneries strong. They maintain their nunneries by cleaning, painting, refinishing, doing modest repairs, and landscaping. However, for larger repairs, supplies, and ongoing upkeep they need money.

Ongoing maintenance of the nunneries is vital. By keeping the buildings and their surroundings in good condition, costly repairs can be avoided in the future.

Please help the nuns maintain their nunneries!
