DORJEE ZONG NUNNERY FUNDRAISER
EMBODYING ALTRUISM | EMPOWERING WOMEN
is a 700 year-old Tibetan Buddhist outpost in the high attitude Himalayan region of Zanskar, Northern India. The nuns who live in this humble monastery are entirely cut off from the outside world during the long winter months. They are famed for reaching advanced levels of meditative realization in this remote and difficult setting.

OUR SERVICE PROJECT
is a voluntary initiative led by students of the Contemplative Studies Program to raise USD $20,000 in support of the educational and medical needs of nineteen nuns living at the Dorjee Zong Nunnery. Our group supports the preservation of Tibetan culture and is grateful to the Tibetan Buddhist lineage we are studying in the Contemplative Studies Program.
