Why your money really makes a difference

Being a woman in the Himalayas of Nepal most of the time means illiteracy, hard physical labour and early motherhood.
Their religious culture enables young Buddhist nuns to avoid that predicament and offers them the opportunity of spending time on study and practice within their own communities. However, funding is required to enable the nuns to focus on their study and practice. It is for this reason that the MFI supports the Tibetan Buddhist Muktinath Nuns.

You can contribute to help a woman in the Himalayas. We most welcome your donation for livelihood, medical care and education of the Muktinath Nuns. The money will be directly handed over to the nuns. The nuns keep accounts on the spending of the money, checked by the abbot of Muktinath-Chumig Gyatsa, Lama Wangyal.

No delivery costs
MFI goods shipped to Jomsom
The delivery costs to bring the donations in Muktinath-Chumig Gyatsa will be paid by the members of the MFI board and special sponsors, not (!) by your donation.

No meat or fish
Especially if you are Hindu it might be important to know that no meat or fish will be bought from donations given to the MFI at all.
