About Us

Jamyang Foundation supports education projects for girls and women in developing countries, in harmony with their unique Buddhist cultural heritage. By offering new learning opportunities, the projects are transforming lives and opening up new possibilities.

Our Programs

Equal educational opportunities are a global ideal, but in many parts of the world women still lack basic literacy. To address these disparities, Jamyang Foundation supports innovative education projects for indigenous girls and women in some of the neediest and most remote parts of the world.
