Dutch Foundation for Ladakhi Nuns

to support tibetan-buddhist nuns in Ladakh, India




At the beginning of 2018, one of our sponsors suggested the possibility of submitting a subsidy application to De Beer Stichting for education in the nunneries in Ladakh.

Our sponsor travelled in the summer of 2017 with Joan Moonen past Ladakhi monasteries, including DFLN monasteries. She was impressed by the work that is being done there and by the intense collaboration with the DFLN. That is why she gave us the name of a friend of hers, who is a board member of De Beer Stichting. And suggested that the DFLN could submit a project proposal because our work fits within their objective.

Over the past few months we have been receiving a letter from Thailand with the amount of Baht100, in support of the nuns in Ladakh. It comes from Dhium, he/she has been sending us this amount for over a year and a half now. It is meant for the 'mothers of the Earth', but also for all living creatures, including his/her parents, family etc.

We do not know where we can exchange this money, but taking it to Ladakh, so the nuns can put it in the offertory of their temple and then the contributor will be included automatically in the prayers of the nuns.

In 2014 we were informed that someone requested all her friends and invitees at her birthday celebration that she would prefer if they would contribute towards a donation to a group of elderly nuns in Nyerma than to get her gifts. Her sixtieth birthday party generated a very handsome amount of € 600.00!

A beautiful idea that deserves attention in our website.

Are you also celebrating a special birthday and want to give your gift to a group of nuns? Please contact our sponsorship coordinator, Ingrid Foeken
