Dhammajarinee Witthaya School in Thailand has helped hundreds of girls, who otherwise would have had no opportunity to go to school, get a kindergarten to 12th grade education. The boarding school presently has over 430 girls, many of whom come from broken homes. They are often abused, abandoned, or orphans.

Many poor families in Thailand are not able to send their daughters to school, and instead young girls are often employed in degrading occupations putting them at risk of abuse, AIDs, exploitation, depression, and addiction.

Dhammajarinee Witthaya School for girls provides the most current academic curriculum along with Buddhist teaching. The school trains Buddhist nuns and provides education to any girl who lacks opportunity to go to school.

Girls who attend the school exude inner strength and dignity as young women and future leaders of their communities. The school is highly ranked and greatly respected for its focus on development of character and integrity to help young women become successful leaders, educators, and mothers.

Two hundred of the students are now practising Transcendental Meditation and its advanced programmes, and 104 more will have learned by the end of the year.
