Adoption of Monks

The help of the Association reaches, through the long distance adoption of monks, various Tibetan Buddhist monasteries in Tibet/China, India and Nepal. Here the precious and ancient spiritual, cultural, artistic and medical traditions are preserved and propagated: a heritage for the whole of humanity. It is within the walls of these monasteries that many young children also find the possibility to study according to their own culture and tradition. But, these monasteries are extremely poor: there is no money to ensure decent food, to buy medicine, clothes, shoes or books. Through the long distance adoptions of monks, Lama Gangchen Help in Action is able to help 15 monasteries in Tibet, Nepal and India.

Through the adoption of a monk – child or adult – a very beautiful human relationship can be developed, and these monasteries with their ancient traditions are helped to survive.
