In the remote Himalayan region of Zangskar, Buddhist culture has thrived for over a thousand years. Since 1989, Jamyang Foundation has supported education projects for Buddhist nuns in the region, helping to heal the gender imbalance that is at the root of many social injustices. In the village of Skyagam, a group of nuns worked diligently to build a new monastery from scratch and named it Pakmo Ling. Despite freezing winters and harsh living conditions, these nuns study and practice happily together. In 2015, Adam Berne arrived to teach English and saw that the nuns needed a new classroom. Together, he and the nuns built a passive-solar-heated classroom of stone and mud. With the help of a tractor and lots of tea, they managed to complete the project before winter set in. They offer their gratitude and prayers to all the generous donors who made this possible!
