North of Luang Prabang town near the banks of the Mekong the Sangha’s Buddhist Academy site occupies 9 hectares of former rice fields and forest.
Already home to a large population of secondary school students, the Sangha’s ambitious plans for the Academy reach in the future to the founding of a Tertiary Education facility.
Much of the construction of the Academy buildings, supported by the Buddhist Heritage Project, has been carried out by the monks and novices with support from the local community. Major support for work at the Academy has been provided by the London based Badur Foundation and private donors both local and international.
