Self Sufficiency

In 2007 the nuns requested His Holiness to allow them to open a small provision shop, a souvenir shop, an internet cafe and a guest house, on the site of Druk Amitabha mountain, so they could provide an income for the community. Eventually they wish to become fully self sufficient so that His Holiness can use His resources for other projects.

They have also constructed three greenhouses and have started to grow their own food. Thanks to some generous sponsors, the nuns now use solar panels for some of their energy needs.
