Emma Slade is an ordained Buddhist nun, yoga and meditation teacher, and authour. She is based in Whitstable, Kent, but spends several months per year in Bhutan where she set up and runs her charity, Opening Your Heart to Bhutan.
Opening Your Heart To Bhutan is a UK-based charity which brings children with special needs joy and the opportunity to build meaningful lives within their communities.
Through simple, practical acts of compassion, the charity provides access to medical care, disability aids and basic amenities in the isolated rural East of Bhutan. It also empowers disabled young people by helping them access education and training. No-one is paid to run the charity - costs are kept at bare minimum to maximise funds going directly to those most in need.
