Sponsoring of children at risk of exclusion from the Himalayas of India for their schooling

All the children included in our campaign 2022-2023 have been properly schooled thanks to generous sponsors.

1. Sponsored children

Children come from villages of Arunachal Pradesh, usually from large families with low level of resources.

The children are hosted in the Tibetan Children’s Home (TCH), welfare society with which the Foundation has an agreement, and go to a nearby school.

The Tibetan Children’s Home hostel hosts girls and boys from families in a very precarious situation in the Himalayas. It has already taken a significant number of them out of poverty. With the education received they have been able to occupy a decent position in their society. For years some of the monks of the Foundation have collaborated in the selection and support of the hosted children.

The children are cared for, supported and tutored in the hostel. They attend one of the two nearby schools, the Tibetan Nehru Memorial Foundation School, a public Tibetan language school, and another private English language school.

Children in the sponsorship process will join this hostel, which has long experience and is fully operational at a low cost with local staff.

Agradecimiento de la Tibetan Children’s Home
The children of the Tibetan Children's Home thank our Foundation and wish its director Sonam success in his journey to Mön-Arunachal in the Himalayas to bring and help more girls and boys of the villages in their schooling

Ultimately, all of humanity is one, it is a whole, and this small planet is our only home. If we want to protect this home of ours, each of us needs to cultivate and practice universal compassion.
