The construction of our new women’s center is complete! We held the opening on the 5th of May to celebrate this special day and the beginning of a grand project to improve the education and empowerment of the women in our community.
The construction of the building was possible thanks to a donation from our volunteer Dave Bruce in loving memory of his late mother Rosemary Vida Bruce. A plate was engraved and mounted to pay tribute to her. His mother devoted her life to spreading compassion and loving kindness and the center will honor her life and memory by supporting the lives and dreams of it’s women members.
The ceremony began with the lighting of a butter lamp after which Dave and the portrait of his mother were presented with a khata in the Buddhist ceremonial tradition.
