Annual Report 2021

Vleuten, 23-4-2022
Dear HNGF friends and sponsors,


In this ANNUAL REPORT 2021, we would like to inform you about HNGF’s last
year’s activities.

Progres projects:
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.

Mainpat
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.

Rumtek
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.

Soreng
Since 2018 we had contact with the School in the Sky Foundation, which aims at
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
you know!

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

Latest developments

We are very pleased with the number of sponsors that have signed up since March until now: 10! To startup takes longer than we wish, always tend to underestimate how much time the things (till now) questions. Unfortunately, that is the reason why Karin jansen after the first months had to decide to withdraw from the Board. But Peter and I still feel great enthusiasm and go unabated!

This week a is letter given to the Secretariat of H.E. Beru Khyentse Rinpoche in order to make further concrete arrangements. In addition, during week 32, Peter will meet a spokesman from Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche to discuss a second project. After the summertime there will probably be more to inform you about!

Have a nice summertime!
