Dear HNGF friends and sponsors,
In this ANNUAL REPORT 2021, we would like to inform you about HNGF’s last
Due to the continuation of the corona crisis in 2021, we could again not travel to
India in December. This journey has always been of great importance and serves
to keep track of the projects we support. The direct personal interaction with the
contact persons has continuously helped us to evaluate the projects. In addition
these personal contacts were used to come to an agreement about the spending
of the HNGF donations. The absence of these face-to-face contacts put many of
our projects on hold.
We were able to stay in touch with the monastery in Mainpat.
Many of the young monks of H.E. Beru Khyentse Rinpoche, permanently stay
in Mainpat (India). Thangs to your support HNGF previously helped to furnish a
classroom and finish the construction of the school building. Last year we
supported the construction of a new kitchen house.
We stayed in touch with some of the other contacts, but less frequently. In
particular, we had contact with Ani Tsultrim, our Rumtek contact person. We hope
to meet her again in December 2022.

setting up a school for girls and young women (more information can be found on
our website). Due to a change in the board of this foundation, there is at present
no contact person.
As soon as we have a new contact and there are new developments we will let
We would like to thank you again for your involvement and kind donations! We
will continue our activities in 2022- 2023 and try to make a difference.
With warm regards,
Mirjam Bezemer, Ursula Heine and Hans Gerritsen
