Help support Kulungile, a home for vulnerable children in South Africa

Thanissara with Sister Abegail

Thanissara and Kitissaro, founders of Dharmagiri Hermitage and Outreach in South Africa (profiled in “The Dharma of Ubuntu,” from the Buddhadharma archives), are raising funds to buy a home for Sister Abegail Ntleko and the 21 orphaned children and teenagers in her care. Sister Abe, as she’s known, has been taking care of AIDS orphans and other disadvantaged children for decades, and the house she’s living in now isn’t big enough for all of them.

Right now, the fundraiser is two-thirds of the way to their $50,000 goal, and they have until May 28 to raise another $20,000. Learn how you can help at the project’s Indiegogo page. You can also sign the Kulungile petition in support of resources for children left vulnerable by the pandemic.
