Help support over 800 Tibetan Buddhist nuns living in 7 nunneries in northern India and provide them with food, education, health care and shelter. Together we can educate, empower, and improve the status of the nuns.

The Group's Purpose

The mission of the Tibetan Nuns Project is to educate and empower nuns of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition as teachers and leaders; and to establish, strengthen, and support educational institutions to preserve the Tibetan religion and culture.The Tibetan Nuns Project was founded over 30 years ago in 1987. We currently support 7 nunneries and over 800 nuns in India. 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.”
