Présentation
The project benefits directly 600 nuns and aims to :
* improve their life conditions, limiting the risk of diseases and epidemics by restructuring and sanitizing the monastery facilities and building a new 1,080 m2 dormitory, in order to host 120 nuns in clean rooms ;
* improve hygienic and health conditions thanks to health and hygiene training. Specifically, 600 nuns have received hygiene-kits, 50 nuns will be trained to become hygiene trainers and 550 ones will be trained on health and hygiene basics ;
* corroborate their economic conditions by training 20 nuns in tailoring, especially for the realization of traditional and religious dresses. Another 20 of them will receive the equipment needed to start up a small tailoring enterprise ;
* improve their cultural and educational conditions thanks to book-editing, publication and distribution of Tibetan religious works so that they can be employed in the monastery as well as in other ones in Qinghai and Sichuan.

The indirect beneficiaries will be 2,100 people, such as monks and nuns, that will receive a book-series of 8 volumes of buddhist works, and another 11,000 people, that is their relatives, that will receive a great amount of works published thanks to the project.
