When we arrived at Phungmoche all the monks and its students were line up with Katas (a white or yellow good luck scarf) to give us all a worm welcome. His Holliness Lama Ngawang Jimba led the monks and students that greeted us. For two days we worked constructing the incinerator and building a new toilet facility for the monastery (the money for the toilet facility was donated by the HallBeza family). The weather during this time was not very good but the university students were really keen to work and even when it pored they kept going!

Besides the incinerator and toilet project the students had class work and research to conduct; they’re enrolled in an International Community Development subject in which they worked on one of four projects requested by the Junbesi community. These projects included a reforestation project and nursery, waste facility development, green house design and a toilet facility design/build project for the Junbesi Secondary School. These university students met with the Head Master of Phungmoche Monastery and Buddhist School, the lead carpenter working on the incinerator and various other community members of Junbesi and the surrounding villages; the students learned a lot and it was a great trip.
