Project: Nhenang Palden Pawo Monastery

The Spiritual Leader born in Tibet, is not allowed to leave Tibet. Without a spiritual leader, the monastery has suffered financial difficulties. Jurme Wangda visits the Monastery regularly to help with the education of the young monks. $10,000 is desperately needed to repair the foundation and courtyard of the monastery, damaged by the monsoon rain.
