Sponsorship Programs

Shechen Monastery in Nepal needs your support for the growing number of monks who are coming to study and practice. The monastery provides for the monks’ complete education in addition to covering all expenses for food, shelter, clothing and medical care. These sponsorship programs have been in effect for thirty years and provide partial support for over 500 monks and nuns. Please join us.

Children’s Fund

In the Shechen School 135 children receive a traditional education with a modern curriculum. Our new school program goes until Grade Seven and the children will receive a government certificate once they finish their studies. There are women, lay people, and monastic teachers covering subjects ranging from English to computers to Tibetan reading and writing.

Nuns’ Fund

Shechen Orgyen Chodzong Nunnery in Bhutan provides a similar training and education for women, including a nine-year shedra or college training. One hundred and thirty nuns live, practice meditation, and are educated in this small rural nunnery and retreat center.

Your tax-deductible annual contribution of $250 goes towards the support of a child, nun, or monk and also helps to sustain the community as a whole.

This is a rare opportunity to help young people inherit the richness of their own culture and to preserve a vital link for future generations.
