Film Help de Dalai Lama komt langs

Aniek Jaartsveld is already in Ladakh since a few weeks. She will be joined by Marlies Bosch in mid-June and Ingrid Foeken by early July. We will keep you posted through this site about all the happenings in Ladakh this summer, accompanied with the pictures that we take. So please do visit the site occasionally for new information !

By Marlies Bosch

Last days in Ladakh and there are still many things that need to be dealt with, such as discussing the construction of a water reservoir at the new nunnery in Basgo, sponsored by the Foundation Educare.

In mid-July Ingrid Foeken and I gave a workshop on sexual abuse and celibacy. It is much needed because many girls are very young when they start residing at the nunnery and they are not given any information about such things at home. And in the nunnery too no one prepares them for such situations.
