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. 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.
  2. GESHEMA EXAMS 2018: Help the nuns who are taking Geshema exams with the costs of travel to and from the exams and food during their final study time and exam period.
  3. INTER-NUNNERY DEBATE/JANG GONCHOE: The 2018 inter-nunnery debate will be held at Kopan Nunnery in Nepal. Hundreds of nuns would like to take part, but we need help with food and travel costs.
  4. MAINTAIN THE NUNNERIES: Keep the nunnery buildings sound and strong by helping us provide regular upkeep and repair, such as painting and roof work.
  5. MEDIA EQUIPMENT: Empower the nuns to tell their own stories by helping to provide cameras and other media equipment to 7 nunneries in India. NOTE: We have a $1,000 matching gift from a board member for this project. Donate now and double your impact.
  6. RETREAT HUT DRAINAGE: Help protect the nuns and the 8 retreat huts at Dolma Ling Nunnery from torrential monsoon rains,
  7. ROOF PAINTING SHUGSEP NUNNERY: Prevent leaks and keep the nunnery buildings strong and healthy by donating to help paint and seal the roofs at Shugsep Nunnery. NOTE: This project needs to be done by the end of September 2018. We have a $4,000 matching gift from a long-time donor. Donate now and double your impact.
  8. SHUGSEP TEMPLE FLOOR: An infestation of wood-eating insects has destroyed the Shugsep Nunnery temple floor and its supporting structure. Repairs are urgent.
  9. TEACHERS’ SALARIES: Provide education to hundreds of nuns by making a gift to support teachers’ salaries. Each year we seek to fund the salaries of 10-15 teachers for the nuns.
  10. YANGCHEN LOPHEL STUDY CENTER: Help us construct a multi-purpose learning center in India to enable both nuns and lay women to study Tibetan Buddhism.
