Nying-Jey Projects – Sponsoring Tibetan Students, Nuns and Monks
The monks are mostly born in Tibet, and are now refugees based in monasteries in southern India. These monks have few resources and rely on the monastery for their daily needs. They live in shared rooms with no heating or cooling. The monasteries cannot afford to provide medical or dental care. Sponsorship enables a monk to improve his standard of living – more comfortable accommodation, better diet, and provides funds to make offerings and purchase materials for studies. Included in this group are children, most related to monks, who have been sent to India to receive a Tibetan education.

These children are relatives of monks who have come from Tibet to be educated. They are being looked after by their monk brothers, uncles or cousins, and attend school in the Tibetan settlements.
