Dhamma Moli Project
The Dhammamoli Project can be seen at: www.dhammamoli.org.
It receives Nepalese girls into the women’s monastery for training and education. The girls are at risk as their parents might sell them into prostitution. Some of these girls will continue in a Buddhist monastic life, and some will not, according to their choice. At least, they become educated in the Buddha's teaching and hopefully reduce the rampant sex slavery, prostitution and spread of HIV/AIDS.
Bhikkhuni Dr. Dhamma Vijaya of Nepal and Bhikkhuni Dr. Molini of Burma created this center and have made it their life work to help these young girls. Their monastic school in Kathmandu, Nepal helps girls at risk. Also, they travel into the countryside to educate the populace as to not sell their daughters.
As of August 1, 2007, the Dhamma Moli Project officially began operating as an affiliate under the umbrella of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship’s 501c(3) nonprofit status, USA. All donations to help the Dhamma Moli project therefore should be made through Buddhist Peace Fellowship and are fully tax-deductible.
In order to raise funds for their project, these two Bhikkhunis travel to the USA and teach Buddhism at universities, for example, at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles California and the University of Dayton. They return to Nepal with funds to continue to build their school and care for the girls.
