Whenever I receive a letter from someone considerate enough to take the time to write to me about our project, it gives me great heart. I thought that volunteers and donors might be interested in some of the feedback we’ve received. A selection of comments follow from some of the individuals and organisations outside of Sang-ngak-chö-dzong and the Aro gTér who have been kind enough to voice their support.

“. . .we hope our donation goes some way to helping you achieve your total to build the new centre. . . and wish you every success with your venture. . .”
