Join our Intentional Community

This is a call to help create an egalitarian, collaborative community were we can work together closely, yet easily, dedicating ourselves to helping others.

 Engage in Social Action Training

Like the Buddha, we are committed to making ourselves “a refuge for all beings..” Navigate to our training page to take part in Bearing Witness training, Mindfulness for Engaged Buddhists, and cultivation of practice that will help you avoid or overcome burn-out

 Pledge a school uniform  $10
120 mandatory school uniforms are needed for children who will attend our temporary school in Kanji  to be inaugurated July 2015 and 70 for the school we adopted in Aliyendal.

Pledge expanding shoes  $15

Most untouchable children do not have shoes. It is important that we get some to them before they start school. 15 dollars/pair for shoes that will grow 5 sizes with them is a miracle!

Pledge a toilet  $40

Poor sanitation leads to malnutrition, rape and death. Offer a safe place for women and children to relieve themselves . We will match every pledge to install a family toilet.

Pledge a Month’s Wages  $250

Our youth development initiative training unskilled workers as brick masons (who will build the permanent educational complex serving 16 villages) will save on construction costs while giving the unemployed villagers a supportive life skill

Build a Well or School—Offer Any Amount!

We are raising $250,000 to provide water and build a k-12 educational complex to serve 16 Untouchable villages
