Moanoghar, February 22, 2009
Moanoghar was founded in 1974 in Rangapani, Rangmati Hill Tracts by a group of socially engaged Buddhist monks and laypersons, to provide shelter and education to children in distress and misery, victims from the construction of the Kaptai hydro-electric dam in 1960s and the liberation war in 1971. It continues to provide shelter, foods, clothes, general and vocational education and primary health care to about 600 indigenous poor, orphan and destitute children of CHT. Its message of tolerance, compassion and mutual understanding reflects the traditions and heritage of the CHT and its indigenous people.
