BIA Foundation Disabled Narayantar Joparti Kathmandu of Chogyal Rinpoche/Nepal

Since 2012 supported by the KHCP.

About BIA:
Bodhisattvas in Action (BIA) is a social non-government organization founded by Chogyal Rinpoche with the pure objective of helping the disabled and the underprivileged people.
Currently there are twelve different institutes run by the disabled people in Nepal under BIA Foundation

The KHCP/DHKUH temporarely organized little medical checkups for the disabled here. We also bought a industrial washing machine. We are looking for medical volunteers specially orthopedics for the near future.

In Febr. 2019 the KHCP (Pia, Peter, Dr. Sonam, Dr. Angelika Leist) visited the BIA-Foundation of Chogyal Rinpoche near Boudha in Narayantar, Jorpati Kathmandu.

We have been guided through all 13 workshops.
Here BIA provides handicraft trainings to people with disabilities through which they can learn the skills they want without having to pay for learning. The people with disabilities, whose houses are out of valley, are provided hostel facility including both accommodation and food by the organization inside its premises.

They currently have 13 projects under which the students learn various handicraft skills.
Thangka Institute, Weaver Institute, Applique Thangka Institute, Incense Institute, Tailoring Institute, Dhaka Institute, Carpet Institute, Bamboo Institute, Mala Institute, Statue Institute, Mobile Repair Institute, Wood carving Institute, Organic Farming and Art Therapy Class are the projects we have so far within the four years of our establishment.
End of the visit we got a nice wooden buddha statue from the institute and KHCP bought a Medicine buddha statue as donation. We will hang it in our KHCP-Medical-Service-Station at Sharminub.
