She founded the Nuns Welfare Foundation in Nepal to support the education and welfare of Buddhist nuns. Ani has a new foundation in the U.S. and tells us why she decided to become a nun and how that decision shaped her life’s work. She also performs songs in our Jim and Kay Mabie Performance Studio. And on Global Activism, we check back with Sarah Koch, founder of Development in Gardening (DIG). The organization helps improve the nutrition of HIV-affected people by creating community gardens.
