ROKPA Projects in Africa
Apart from the projects in the Himalaya region, ROKPA is also active in Zimbabwe and in South Africa.
Dr. Akong Tulku Rinpoche, co-founder of ROKPA, encouraged his students in African countries to start projects in their own countries, which they did and continue to do. In many places they have organized their own fundraising for their own projects. If they cannot gather enough funds, they can then obtain financial assistance from ROKPA INTERNATIONAL.
The respective project request comes from the project executors themselves. They then implement their projects – even though under our patronage – and run them. ROKPA INTERNATIONAL is provided with regular reports and information about the activities and regularly reviews the project work with visits on site. This ensures that all these projects comply with our guidelines.
