Ani Choying Drolma the founder of The Aarya tara school

Running in its 11th year, Arya Tara School was started in January 2000. It is a flagship project of the Nuns' Welfare Foundation of Nepal (NWF), an NGO founded in 1998 by Ani Choying Drolma.
Arya Tara School first started as a small school at a temporary site in Kathmandu with only seven nuns in the first year. Today over a period of only 10 years the school has grown phenomenally that boasts a five storied, well equipped, live-in institution of learning in Pharping (Setidevi VDC-3, 18 km from Kathmandu) with a capacity to accommodate more than 60 nuns. Living and learning in an environment with positive female role models is an integral component of the Arya Tara education. The new school in Pharphing which, started operations from July 2005, is now home to over 60 nuns who come from some of the poorest and most remote areas of Nepal, Tibet and India. 
Ani Choying has always believed that nuns have a great desire and potential to make the world a better place, if only given equal opportunities. Arya Tara School aims to equip nuns to help and to serve their communities in a professional and humanitarian capacity. With a fully developed and realized potential, she believes that her nuns will be able to not only help themselves, but also to help others. The Arya Tara School aims to help young nuns bring their compassion into fruition, actively, effectively, skillfully and meaningfully. 
To finance the school, Ani Choying generates income through musical endeavors.The Arya Tara School has been providing accomodation to the nuns and by providing proper education facilities to the students who could not get proper education.
