Dharmarijika Orphans Study By Candlelight

This is the story of the Dharmarajika Monastery in Dhaka, Bangladesh. It was formed in the 1960s by a respected Buddhist Venerable. During the Bangladesh War of Liberation which killed over 3 million people, the Buddhist Venerable setup an orphanage for children who lost parents during the war.

Since then, the orphanage has turned into a hostel for both children without parents and those from poor families. No children are adopted – rather the Dharmarajika Orphanage serves as a dormitory giving kids a place to stay, food to eat, and a free education. Those staying in the hostel are allowed to continue to be residents if they want to pursue higher education after graduation.

The monastery is trying to sustain this hostel through several income generating initiatives. They also charge tuition for their school for families in the surrounding community who are able to afford it. But, unfortunately, it’s never enough to do everything and there are often shortfalls. This is where the YouTube community was able to step in.

The Uncultured Project project is not a charity or organization. It’s just something I do as an individual with the support of the YouTube Community.

This was funded by donations to: http://uncultured.com/donations
