Sponsor a monk

Sponsoring a monk for $500 USD/year ( less than  $10 USD/week ) will enable Lama Namgay to care for and educate more disadvantaged young boys; many of whom are orphaned and have no family to care for them. Alternatively, if you would prefer to offer a partial sponsorship  to address one of the needs listed below or an outright donation for the monks’ well-being and education, you may also use the following bank account. By supporting these young, underprivileged boys you will be providing them with  hope for a brighter future and  the opportunity to rise above their challenging circumstances. Your generosity will be far-reaching and generate great merit as it will have a humanitarian, spiritual and cultural impact. Please join others in making a difference to these young lives and the future of Phajoding Monastery. Sponsoring a monk for one year at a cost of $500 USD (30,000 ngultrum) can be broken down into the following components:

Toiletries & incidentals $120/year
Clothing / shoes $120/year
Teaching materials $200/year
Medical / transportation costs $60/year
