Start of building ROKPA's Akong Rinpoche Memorial Center in Kathmandu

Our Architect with the Contractor - in the back our ROKPA Children's Home.

Today is finally the start of building ROKPA's Akong Rinpoche Memorial Center in Boudha, Kathmandu. After many years of hoping and planning ( the project was actually started by Akong Rinpoche himself!), and after blessing the land by Thrangu Lamas and monks in December, the first shovel dug out the first earth.

With this building we have 3 goals in mind:

  • The expansion of our ROKPA Women's Workshop, where destitute mothers get an education and a job as seamstresses
  • Development of a hospitality programme for the training of young and motivated Nepalese who cannot afford to study at a hospitality college
  • Increase capacity of our ROKPA Guest House

We need your help to finance this project. Please mark any donation: “New Construction in Kathmandu”. Thank you very much!
