Lama Changchub startet Shenpen Aid i 2009 sammen med en gruppe ivrige frivillige. Shenpen har siden vært aktive med humanitært arbeid i India og Nepal. Han ønsker å dele noen tanker om hvor mye dette kan bety for dem som trenger det. Og for dem som hjelper til.
“Before giving, the mind of the giver is happy; while giving, the mind of the giver is made peaceful; and having given, the mind of the giver is uplifted.”
In a world marked by unprecedented challenges and uncertainties, Shenpen Aid stands out as a beacon of hope and compassion. We are on a mission to uplift the lives of underprivileged children in India and Nepal through holistic support in education, healthcare, career development, and rapid response during times of humanitarian crises. What sets us apart from the rest is our unwavering commitment to ensuring that nearly every penny we raise directly serves its intended purpose, with minimal administrative overhead, and without a single paid employee – all thanks to our dedicated volunteers in Norway.
At Shenpen Aid, our primary focus is clear: to make a lasting impact on the lives of impoverished children in India and Nepal. In regions where the cycle of poverty and inequality often seems unbreakable, we believe that education, healthcare, and career development can provide a lifeline to a brighter future. We not only change individual destinies but also transform entire communities.
Our remarkable journey would not be possible without our incredible team of volunteers who work tirelessly, driven by a deep-seated passion for making a difference. Within Shenpen Aid, there are no salaries – every individual involved is a committed volunteer. This unique model ensures that your generous contributions are stretched to their utmost potential, directly benefiting those who need it most.
To our dedicated volunteers, our heartfelt thanks are endless. The Shenpen board, committee members, and the entire team tirelessly devote their time, energy, and expertise to translate our vision into reality. Without their unwavering dedication, the impact we create would not be possible. They are the driving force behind our mission, and I am profoundly grateful for their selflessness and boundless compassion.
But our work doesn’t stop at individuals; it extends to entire communities. Shenpen Aid encompasses a wide range of humanitarian programs, from providing quality education to empowering individuals with life-saving healthcare and equipping them with the skills for sustainable career development.
What makes Shenpen Aid unique is our unwavering commitment to minimizing administrative costs. We understand that every penny counts, and it should be invested where it matters most. Your generous contributions are not diluted by excessive overhead, ensuring that the vast majority of funds are directed towards the programs that make a tangible impact on the ground.
Shenpen Aid is about creating transformative, lasting change. Our support reaches both monastics and non-monastics, both Buddhists and non-Buddhists, both Tibetans and non-Tibetans, ensuring that help is provided irrespective of one’s background. While our assistance is available to all, it is often non-monastics who benefit most frequently from our programs, reflecting our commitment to inclusivity and equality.
Shenpen Aid operates under the umbrella of Karma Tashi Ling, a philanthropic organization in Oslo, Norway. Unlike organizations driven by profit, our primary goal is to bring about positive change, not financial gain for individuals. We pride ourselves on transparency and integrity, and our track record speaks volumes about our commitment to the welfare of the individuals and communities we serve.
As we continue our journey of compassion and transformation in India and Nepal, we extend a heartfelt invitation to you to join us in making a difference. Your support, whether as a donor, sponsor, or volunteer, has the power to change lives. Together, we can ensure that the children of India and Nepal receive the opportunities they rightfully deserve and the chance to build brighter futures.
Shenpen Aid stands as a testament to the incredible change that can be achieved when individuals come together with a shared vision of compassion and empowerment. Join us in this remarkable journey and become a part of something truly extraordinary. Your contributions will not only change lives but also change the world, one child at a time. Thank you for considering Shenpen Aid, and together, let’s light up the path to a better future.
