- How the School Began
In 2003, there were many children in Tsharka, but there was no school
If they could get the materials, they would build the school themselves. If they could have teachers and books, their children could learn to read and write.
The Bon Lama of Tsharka, Lama Tashi, told them another woman had also agreed to help Tsharka build a school: Leona Mason. In August 2003, Leona arrived with a large tent and teaching materials and ran a school in the tent for the rest of the season.
