After more than a year of intense work, on March 29, 2017 we inaugurated the fifty-five houses sponsored by Rangjung Yeshe Shenpen.
Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, founder of Shenpen, formally received an award by the vice-president of Nepal, Nanda Kishor Pun during the official inauguration ceremony.
Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche kindly traveled to Dhading to perform the inauguration and blessing with the help of his brother, the vajra master Tsikey Chokling Rinpoche. Each family was assigned a house by way of a lottery system, and they were handed a padlock and a certificate of ownership for their house.
This was a powerful moment for all of the villagers, who worked more than ten hours a day for 15 months to build their new homes, which means that they managed to build one house every eight days!
Rangjung Yeshe Shenpen invested close to NRS 5 crores (US $500,000) in the project.
May the villagers be happy and safe in their new houses!
