There are an increasing number of full-time and part-time staff in the Kechara organisation as more and more people see the value in Dharma work. There are around 120 people who are currently working in the organisation at present.

Each department of Kechara is run by its own group of core people, who are board of directors, official committee members, full-time or part-time staff and volunteers.

Board of Directors

Introduced in the year 2006 as the Liaisons Council, and renamed in 2013 as the Board of Directors, this is the governing body that oversees the operations and management of the Kechara organisation. This concept stems from the monastic institution of the great Gaden Monastery, where it was adopted hundreds of years ago and endures until today.

In KECHARA, the Board of Directors are elected to office for a term of two years, and are committed to assist H.E. Tsem Rinpoche in spreading the Buddhadharma far and wide. This includes creating the environment for the most challenging and rewarding training – the mind training through Lama Tsongkapa’s teachings for all who come in contact with the KECHARA organisation.
