Everybody who works at Kunsang Yeshe is a volunteer, there are no paid positions. As well as those in the identifiable roles below, there are so many who step forward and lend a hand with cooking, cleaning, gardening, making chai, setting up for events and packing them away – whatever is required, the list goes on and on.
Oceans of thanks to every one of our precious volunteers,
without you the Centre quite simply could not operate.
