Thanks to a very kind benefactor plus funds offered from Lama Zopa Rinpoche personally, over US$73,000 was offered from the Supporting Ordained Sangha Fund toward a desperately needed new sewage system at Sera Lachi in southern India.  Sera Lachi is made up of Sera Je and Sera Mey Monasteries. 6,000 monks study between the two monasteries. 

This grant contributes to making the environment at Sera Lachi clean, hygienic, safe, and conducive to thoughtful study for the Sangha on the grounds. This is just one way the Supporting Ordained Sangha Fund is able to offer support to thousands of monks at one time. 

Please rejoice in the funding of this important project which benefits the Sangha, the environment, and in turn, all who will receive teachings and guidance from these monks in the future.
