Arizona Friends of Tibet is a non-profit organization for people who believe Tibetans are entitled to the basic human rights outlined in the charter of the United Nations.  We support the non-violent efforts of the Dalai Lama to regain dignity and religious freedom for the Tibetan people, and to preserve the unique and endangered culture of Tibet and its ancient Buddhist traditions.  In order to do this we raise funds in order to support health care and educational projects within Tibet.

Bodrigpunda Thuntsok was established in Kathmandu, Nepal in 2008 as a program for Tibetan youth.  "Bod-Rig Punda," which means "Tibetan Brotherhood," seeks to divert the energy and anger of Tibetan youth forward in a peaceful manner.  We want the fire of youth to light up the darkness created by desperation and wipe out the misery of Tibetans, but not to burn and hurt those who are around us in our struggle.  Our primary objectives are to: create a conducive environment for a Buddhist education; encourage youth to participate in traditional cultural programs; organize campaigns for the development of Tibetan culture and tradition; highlight the common problems that exist in the Tibetan community; provide scholarships for excellent Tibetan students and to uplift the quality of education by introducing the latest teaching techniques.

The Jangsa Animal Saving Trust was established as a non-profit charitable trust to cover the expenses relating to the establishment and maintenance of the Buddhist practice of Tsethar.  The Trust was established after a personal experience where Lama Kunzang Dorjee came into contact with five bulls who had come to seek refuge in the monastery where he lived.  After escaping the slaughterhouse, these bulls came directly to Lama Kunzang Dorjee's monastery to seek refuge and refused to leave.
