Fundraising Kickoff for Tsegyalgar West

baja-3It is with great enthusiasm we are organizing the visit of Migmar Tsering, Yushan Zhong and several volunteers to Tsegyalgar West for the decoration of the painting of the Gompa of our Gar.

The visit of Migmar is a good opportunity to make an effort not only for having the Gompa painted but to complete the structure, in particular make doors and windows for the building and buy furniture and equipment for the interiors.

We invite you to join us to make this project possible during the month of April 2017.

We are in full campaign of collection of the necessary funds for this project. We have already raised enough for the invitation of the Tibetan artists and for the preparation of the Gompa for the painting and we are receiving more participation every day that makes us confident for the completion of the project

You can join the campaign donating on TW webpage: https://tsegyalgarwest.org/donate-2/ (specify: Donation Gompa)

You may pay online, by check or money order, or at a later date.
