2.0 Monitoring and Evaluation
Nepal is a multi-cultural, diversified with different castes, creed and religions; and thus a beautiful country in the world.
Commonly, Nepal is known as the birthplace of Gautam Buddha, and land of Sagarmatha, the top of the world. Buddhism was originated in Nepal, and later it became widespread all around the world established as the milestone of source of knowledge, happiness, peace, prosperity and enlightenment.
The country like Japan, that has followed the single path called ‘Mahayan Sutra SatdharmaPundarika’ (True religion is like a white lotus flower) has become the world’s prosperous and developed nation, but our country Nepal, epitome of world peace and progress has fallen behind and is compelled to await for other’s help and donation for survival.
One latest condition of Nepal is that, even though Nepal is the origin of Buddhism, but many Nepalese students are forced to travel abroad in search of practical school of Buddhism.
Realizing the importance of traditional and practical Buddhist education, RDCCK is established with the propose of offering all Buddhist courses to produce adept, expert and skilled manpower.
