Pema Y. is a 7 years old girl from Dundunghar village in the Eastern Himalayas (Mön Arunachal). Her underprivileged family has five children. Her parents are poor, and can hardly sustain their children. Pema occasionally goes to a local government school, with very low level of resources and educational means. So her future would be to remain in poverty and under educated. The current exclusion rate of girls is very high in these areas, so educating girls is a priority for development.
Her father does labor work and her mother takes care of children and the household work. The financial condition of the family is very precarious.
The family has five children, one boys and four girls. The boy is in the monastery, and the girls stay at home or attend the small public local village school.
Her parents realize that they can not do more for her, and understand that joining the Tibetan Children’s Home (TCH) hostel and the Nehru Memorial school will be better for the family and for her. She is willing to join as soon as possible.
So there is now an opportunity to board her in the TCH residence and enroll her in the nearby school with adequate means, helping her reach a better future and contribute to the development of the local society, helping also to close the gender gap.
You can be in direct contact with your sponsored child and monitor her progress in the education process.
