Anukampa Bhikkhuni Project was registered as a charity in April 2017. It's objects are to advance Theravada Buddhism in the UK for the benefit of the public primarily by;
(a) establishing and maintaining a residential centre or centres offering material support for Theravada Buddhist bhikkhunis and women training towards full bhikkhuni ordination;
(b) furthering the education of the public in the teachings and practices of the Buddha by organising educational activities.
The charity is run entirely by a tenacious team of volunteers committed to realising the ambition of establishing a bhikkhuni monastery in the UK and creating a supportive space for Dhamma practice for monastics and laypeople alike.
Anukampa Bhikkhuni Project has a Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults policy and associated procedures. If you would like a copy, please send your request through our general enquires contact form, putting 'Safeguarding' in the subject line.
