Ashin Dhammapiya at Orphanage


The monk in that video is of monk Ashin Dhammapiya speaking to a dozen of us visiting his orphanage  under construction to house kids from the delta who lost their homes [some have parents, but they lack money to educate them). This monk is avid about education and his orphanage is actually a school which combines teaching monks with some secular teachers, especially those teaching English. Josh Vekhter, a Cornell University math major taught there in 2012, the foreigner student to teach English in this Buddhist orphanage. He stayed  in the school’s new library, which is filled with NLR’s Thrift Books donated to the school/orphanage through MBAPF.
