Vista is a non-political, not-for-profit enterprise set up to improve the economic, social and cultural well being of recently urbanised, disadvantaged, Tibetans in Sershul County.

Commercial activities fund the outreach programmes, providing a sustainable income stream that removes reliance on external sources of funding.

It has been established by the Vajra Body, the outreach arm of Ju Mohor Monastery. The Vista program follows from extensive consultation between Amnyi Trulchung Rinpoche (Abbot of Ju Mohor Monastery) and other members of Vista's Board, with the Sershul community, government and local businesses.

Vista's programmes are constructed to respond to local need and demand, subject to the availability of funding and the capacity to implement them. Vista is fortunate in having access to the monks of Ju Mohor Monastery who have the education and skills to provide assistance to Vista as requested and when appropriate. In addition, the Rigdzin Foundation provides help through international fundraising and providing operational expertise where required.
