Bhutanese Nuns Visit

BNF-visitWe recently hosted Dr. Tashi Zangmo and Ani Wangmo of the Bhutan Nuns Foundation (BNF) for the Cambridge leg of their UK tour raising funding to improve the living conditions for nuns in Bhutan. This was the first ever time a Bhutanese nun has come to the UK.

The Bhutan Nuns Foundation (BNF) is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2009 to ensure that Buddhist nuns, and other grassroots groups for women, have access to improvements in basic living conditions, quality education and self-reliance to enable women’s successful participation in the socio-economic development of Bhutan. Established under the patronage of Her Majesty Queen Mother Ashi Tshering Yangdon Wangchuck, the Foundation seeks to help make nunneries leading agents and self-reliant institutions for women. It is committed to women’s education and empowerment as a way of enhancing their capacity to support society in its search for Gross National Happiness.
