Nunnery Construction Estimates Reduced.
Thanks to success in Phase I of construction, the total expected costs for the nunnery project have been reduced significantly! We now estimate that the project will cost $1.7 million dollars instead of the original estimate of $2.2 million. The project originally budgeted for contingencies that might have required the higher cost, but we can safely say that these contingencies will not arise. Fund raising for the project has been adjusted accordingly.
Thanks to our generous donors, the project has raised $914,000 as of March. With the help of our sanghas we hope to raise the remaining $786,000 this year.
