Kung Fu Nun, The Drukpa Order - Himalayan Buddhism
Jigme Wangchuk is 19 years old and from Pemagatshel, Bhutan. She has always enjoyed finding ways to help others, and the nuns’ humanitarian work inspired her to join the ranks of the Kung Fu Nuns of the Drukpa Order. She works with the nuns to ensure the safety of Himalayan water supplies, assist families displaced after the Nepal earthquake, and raise awareness about human trafficking, including on a 5,000-kilometer bicycle trek through the Himalayas to meet with local communities. Jigme Wangchuk is now a Kung Fu trainer and recently helped lead a large self-defense workshop for women in Ladakh, India.
