The Group's Purpose

The Tibetan Nuns Project is dedicated to:
1. Improving standards of food, sanitation, medical care, and education in Tibetan nunneries;
2. Working towards future self-sufficiency through educational and training opportunities;
3. Training nuns to take leadership and service roles within their communities;
4. Improving the level and status of ordained Buddhist women;
5. Assisting recently arrived refugee nuns from Tibet;
6. Continuing to establish further facilities for Buddhist nuns

In the words of one donor, “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.”
