About Dharma Project of the Month (inactive)


Dharma Project of the Month showcases Buddhist organisations and individuals who are addressing various issues within their communities, with a special focus on South East Asia. Be it caring for abandoned children and orphans or providing free health care and funeral services for the poor, this column draws inspiration from the many individuals who are putting Buddhist compassion into action by serving the marginalised and less fortunate in their own societies.
