The Tibetan Nuns Project (TNP), a US-registered charity with offices in Seattle and the Kangra District of Himachal Pradesh, India, has announced the success of its recent fundraising campaign to provide new textbooks in math, science, and English for the Buddhist nunneries it supports.

“We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who contributed to purchasing textbooks for the Tibetan Buddhist nuns in India,” TNP stated in an announcement shared with BDG. “Three of the seven nunneries in northern India have already received their new English, math, science, and general knowledge books, and the nuns are thrilled.”

TNP supports seven nunneries in northern India, representing all Tibetan Buddhist traditions: Dolma Ling Nunnery and Institute; Shugsep Nunnery and Institute; Geden Choeling Nunnery; Tilokpur Nunnery; Sakya College for Nuns; Sherab Choeling Nunnery; and Dorjee Zong Nunnery. The project aids more than 800 nuns, including those living alone and those in retreat.
