Overseas Secular Education and Social Reform Program
Rajaundha, is a small rural village situated in the Bodh Gaya region of Bihar in Northern India. The region is one of the poorest in India and the residents of this village could be said to exist on survival mode due to a lack of education, employment opportunity, resources and facilities.
On 20th October 2012 a certified charitable trust was created in order to provide a secular education and social reformprogram in the heart of the village and for the first time enable the children of that village to have access to education as a viable means to lift them out of poverty. Because of the secular nature of the education program, it meant that no government funding could be accessed, so the initial building of the school and the funds to run it had to be met by private donation. Initially, this was met by a Dutch Buddhist group, but due to a change in circumstances, they can no longer meet that early commitment.
Dharmadatu Sangha Inc became involved in 2016 and are now the only organisation that helps to raises funds to meet the costs of maintaining the facility and any further development on site.
Dharmadatu Sangha Inc is a not-for-profit organisation that receives no outside funding and relies on donations made at classes to survive. No member of the sangha receives any form of payment from the donations. Within the spirit of generosity we ask that people give what they can afford to assist us to continue spreading the Dharma. It is our view that a lack of funds should never deter any individual from seeking or receiving the Dharma.
If you would like to make a donation to help us continue the Dharma work that we have undertaken please make payments to the following account:
