We raised funds for the first Karma Kagyu nunnery built in India at Tilokpur in Himachal Pradesh, which will be used for education and food.

Current Goals

We are looking to raise $300,000 to build a small medical clinic at Thrangu Nunnery in Tibet, and to offer medical supplies to several Himalayan nunneries in order to treat TB and other diseases endemic to these areas

We are looking to raise $70,000 for a suitable bus to transport the nuns on the mountainous roads in Yushu. They almost had a deadly accident this year in their old rickety bus with its small tires.
