Nuns in India plant an incredible 1635 trees!

In the northern Indian provinces of Himachal Pradesh and Ladakh, nuns were hard at work.

Out in the cold, between the snowy, rocky mountains, the nuns were planting trees sponsored by Dakini Rising.

Initially, Dakini Rising allocated funds for 280 trees to be planted by the Ladakhi Nuns Association. They were planted at the Sabu Girls Hostel in Ladakh, in honor of Earth Day 2021.

Shortly after, the Dorje Dzong nunnery in Zanskar, Ladakh, did two major tree-planting projects. Here, they planted 1,000 trees!

This was followed by nuns planting at the Jampa Choling nunnery of Meeru, Himachal Pradesh. Here, a further 355 more trees were planted!

Thank you, Dakini Rising, for sharing the story and photos with us!
We are inspired!
