Taking Light into the Dark Places of the World
As our charity expands we are employing women as social workers, tuition
teachers and wardens which is a great opportunity for them in part time well
paid work in an environment free of oppression and sexual harassment which is
sometimes present in a male dominated society.
Women from impoverished backgrounds often grow up without access to
proper healthcare, hygiene, education, confidence and the ability to stand on
their own feet. They are sometimes oppressed and married prematurely. When
women marry too young, they endanger their health and are unable to pass on
wisdom and financial security to their children because they are not
independent and are without an income/education.
The Bodhicitta Foundation has improved the lives of several young women,
counselling sufferers of domestic violence and sponsoring poor women and
