Amitabha Foundation

The Amitabha Foundation in the United States was incorporated in 1986 as a Public Benefit corporation and has been recognized as a bona fide non-profit organization since 1988. The mission of the Amitabha Foundation is two-fold: (1) to provide places to worship, practice and receive teachings on the unique religious tradition of Tibetan Buddhism; and (2) to support the preservation of Tibetan culture, and to promote the health, education and economic development of the Tibetan people worldwide.
Safe Childbirth in Rural Tibet
Most women in Tibet give birth at home without access to emergency care or materials and training needed to prevent infection and hemorrhage. We have been working for 10 years in Eastern Tibet to provide a clinic, trained doctors and midwives, and community health educators who teach safe home birth messages, give out clean birthing kits and document birth outcomes. Our project will pay health workers' salaries for 1 year and help install solar electricity and heat in this rural clinic. project reportread updates from the field
