About Us brings support to Nepal Jonang Buddhist Institute. Its students travel from isolated villages in the Himalayan Mountains to Nepal Jonang Buddhist Institute to receive an education, as well as to gain the opportunity for a promising future.


We accept donations to support the children who attend Jonang Monastery. The students are provided with essentials which they may not have in their isolated village home in the Himalayan Mountains. Just some of these include nutritious meals, clean clothing, and medicine.
