The Manjushri Educational Project

Khenchen Namdrol Rinpoche i has seen many desperately poor families living near his monastery in Nepal with no means of improving their life conditions as they are of the lowest caste, ignored and shunned by most people and have little to eat, no education and hence suffer terribly. Khen Rinpoche believes that the best way to improve their lives is through education and so he decided to establish an education program aimed at providng quality education for the Nepali children. He named the program the Manjushri Educational Project and his intention is to sponsor their full educational path over the course of 10 years. He has already admitted and is currently sponsoring full education for 20 small children from the class 1 to 4 to the one of the best schools in Pharping, Nepal (Cardinal International Boarding High School). As the project grows he wishes to gradually increase the number of poor children to attend school. Khen Rinpoche has also provided them with school supplies, bags and uniforms, as well as bus transportation to and from their homes about a 2 km ride. Now, these poor children are happily attending Cardinal International High school 6 days per week and are beginning to receive good quality education. Rinpoche remarked that even after just the first week of school, eating healthy food and engaging enthusiastically with their teachers, their faces were beaming and their outlook on life was uplifted. Khen Rinpoche sends his thanks and appreciation to the initial sponsors who have helped with establishing the foundation of this project and wrote that "this is happening due to your kindness and moral support."
