Tips for Thupten

This is Thupten Lhamo. ================>>

Thupten is a Tibetan Buddhist nun living in Kathmandu, Nepal, in the Keydong Thukche Choeling Nunnery. She is about 12 years old (Tibetans aren't too concerned about birthdays). She was born in Birdhim, located on Tibet's border.

Thupten's father passed away from tuberculosis. Her mother cannot get a job, so it is difficult to support the family. Her family is extremely poor. But Thupten is very intelligent and studies well.

I found out about Thupten from my friend, teacher, and Buddhist Monk, Kushok Lobsang Damchoe. Because the nunnery was originally located in the same area as Kushok's birthplace in Tibet, and because of his great compassion for people, Kushok has begun a sponsorship campaign for each young nun at the nunnery. 

I have been sponsoring Thupten for more than 2 years now, but there are more nuns that require help. So, I have decided to pledge all of the tips that I receive from my clients towards other nuns at Keydong Thukche Choeling Nunnery in support of Kushok Lobsang Damchoe's efforts to provide hope for his culture, people, and religion.

Please help if you can.
