Tibetan Lama Pema Dorjee returns to the British School of Amsterdam
Tibetan Lama Geshe Pema Dorjee has dedicated his life to helping disadvantaged people in the Himalayan region. There, he has organized numerous charitable projects with emphasis on the poor, the elderly, street children, the sick and the disabled.
Tara Bodong (Netherlands) is a non-profit charitable foundation which supports humanitarian projects in the northern India and Nepal. The projects are initiated locally and overseen by the Tibetan lama, Geshe Pema Dorjee. The foundation is run by a group of International friends in Hilversum who together represent 10 different nationalities. They have various educational and professional backgrounds and expertise, but share the same goal; to do something meaningful with their lives and to help others less fortunate than them. They work voluntarily and aim to keep the organization as lean as possible by keeping overhead costs to a minimum, thus making sure that every euro donated goes entirely to the charity projects.
