SAHARA TRAVEL/ DESERT TREKKING

It was love at first sight when I went on my first guided Sahara tour. The openness, the quietness and the spectacle of the nature touched me very deeply.
A few years ago I met a nomadic family through a friend. I befriended this family and I have taken many of my friends to meet and to travel though the Sahara with them.

TIBET

I met Ani Yeshi Dolma in the monastery  “Achong  Namdzong”on my first trip to Tibet.
At time she was very little and the youngest nun in the monastery. Her life story moved me very much and immediately decided to sponsor her.
With a yearly donation of CHF500.— she is able to pay for her education , buy food, clothes, religious ornaments and if necessary medication.

I am planning to go back to Amdo (East Tibet) this autumn. With this in mind, I started a project for people in need.
We can also set up sponsorships for the children out of divorces. Divorced mothers have most of the time no financial means and cannot afford to send their children to school.
There are children like Ani Yeshi Dolma. She was placed into the monastery at the age of 7. Her father died and her mother had not enough money to feed all her children. Therefore she had to give her oldest child Ani away.

SIKKIM-PROJECT
Sponsorship project and construction monastery monks for children

Sikkim

In the monastery of Shurishing Yungdrung Kundrakling live 35 children. Most of these children are aged between 6 and 18. All children are from the Himalayan region and are orphaned, have only one parent or are from a disadvantaged background. The children were brought to the monastery to have a home. Some of the children have no relatives left and are completely dependent on Khenpo Yongten Gyatso. Khenpo Yongten Gyatso is from Tibet/Kham and is the spirituel leader of this Bon monastery in South Sikkim. His everyday life is dominated by the financial worry of how to cover the expenses of the children. The burden becomes even greater when there are medical emergencies.
In addition to his carer responsibilities he has been given the project of building a second monastery in West Sikkim. In that area live about 80 Bonpos families who have no access to spiritual support. Also there are many children who are in need of a home in a monastery of their religion.
