Khawalung Foundation USA recently hosted its annual Dalit girls school education charity event at the Sheraton LaGuardia hotel in Flushing, New York. The event aimed to raise awareness and support for the education of Dalit children in Nepal, specifically young girls who come from lower caste families and are often deprived of basic human needs like food, shelter, and education.
The event was a huge success, with attendees treated to a range of cultural performances and spiritual pooja. The highlight of the event was the honoring of Mr. Nabaraj KC, a globally recognized humanitarian who has provided support and guidance to the foundation for many years.
“Our mission is to help the children of Nepal who are the future and provide these children an opportunity to live a better life. We are excited to host this event and bring our community together to support Dalit girls school education charity event,” said Khawalung Foundation USA Founder and President Lama Jigme Dorje.
All proceeds from the event went towards the Dalit girls school education charity event and the programs and services provided by Khawalung Foundation USA. Attendees also had the opportunity to make a donation through Khawalung website or at the event.
Khawalung Foundation USA is a nonprofit charitable organization that is managed under the Khawalung Monastery in Nepal. The foundation in the USA is dedicated to preserving, upholding, and disseminating the general Buddhist teaching and particularly the distinct tradition of Vajrayana Tibetan Buddhism, including the treasure teaching (Terma) of H.H Dilgo Khentse Rinpoche, and spreading these teachings with compassion all over the world.
In addition to their spiritual mission, the foundation also works to improve poverty areas in the Himalayas and support impoverished people with education and healthcare. Khawalung Foundation aims to raise funds for the children of Khawalung Monastery in Nepal to ensure they have access to basic human rights such as food, lodging, education, and healthcare.
