Established in 1998, the Nuns Welfare Foundation of Nepal (NWF) is a non profit organization promoting the education and welfare of Buddhist nuns.
Arya Tara School is the flagship project of NWF, opened in 2000. Arya Tara School is a free boarding school for nuns which specializes in combining traditional Buddhist studies with modern education. The NWF is currently fund raising to accrue the necessary funds for a new three-phased school building in Seti Devi VDC, Pharping, on the edge of the Kathmandu Valley, which will allow enrollment to increase more than 100 students.
