Volunteers

The schemes’ coordinator in Adelaide is Carole Armstrong. She carries out all the day to day work, including communicating with new sponsors, managing the financial side of the scheme, preparing the auditing requirements, writing the yearly newsletter, sending of yearly receipts and communicating with all inquiries from sponsors.

Carole is in regular consultation with Venerable Khensur Rinpoche and his assistant Venerable Tenzin Dhargye, who both live in Adelaide. Between them they communicate with the scheme’s co-ordinator at Sera Je Monastery, Geshe Ngawang Zopa. Some technical assistance is also provided by Paul Morgan, who developed the spreadsheet used to manage the scheme’s finances and has also provided other assistance at times. Anthony Sweeney has developed the data base, which houses all the photos of the monks, their details and sponsor details.
