Since 1987, Sakyadhita has worked to remind the Buddhist women of the world of their potential to correct social problems and create a world of peace and happiness for all living beings. We strongly believe in the value of awakening the world's 300 million Buddhist women to work for peace and social justice. Our work has been focused in Asia, especially among the poorest women. Sakyadhita's working principle has been to assist those in greatest need: women and children. We are convinced that educating women in disadvantaged segments of Buddhist society will act as a powerful catalyst for long lasting and far-reaching change. Bringing our work to Taiwan, a prosperous Buddhist society with a strong tradition of social welfare, was extremely meaningful. Now we need to expand this enlightenment transformation to every corner of the world.
