Menri Monastery is a refuge for Bon children whose numbers increase each year. The children, many of whom are orphaned, are sent, after enduring considerable hardships, to Menri from poor regions in the borderlands for their sustenance and education. The annual cost for food, shelter, clothing, and education for one child is $400. Please know that when you donate Sponsorship Support for a Bon Child you are helping all Bon children. If you choose to give a General Donation for Bon Children you may do so in any amount. Boys are sent to the Bon Children's Welfare Center and Girls to the Redna Menling Nunnery, both in the Menri complex. All children attend the nearby Central School for Tibetans. The Bon Foundation forwards all children's sponsorship money and donations to the Yungdrung Bon Monastic Center (YBMC), a non-profit foundation under the leadership of the Abbot of Menri. YBMC evaluates the needs of the children and disperses funds accordingly. The future of Bon depends on the fate of these children. Please help them as much as you can!
