- What you can do
The teachers who have come back to their village to instruct the next generation provide excellent role models for the village children.
We need your help to pay the salaries of the teachers for the school and to maintain the school for the benefit of the students. Salaries in Nepal are relatively low: $2,000 pays the salary of one teacher for one year.
Even a small donation will help keep the school running. An individual student sponsorship is $120 per year, only $10 per month. This amount helps pay for the costs of the child’s education.
Specific items for which we are seeking funds:
- Support for proper installation and education on maintaining a pit toilet
- Teaching supplies
- Books in English, Tibetan and Nepali
- Internet access
- Teachers’ living quarters: beds, bedding, dining table and chairs
- Fence surrounding the school property
We also have an Endowment Fund. A contribution to the Endowment Fund will be invested and only the annual interest from that contribution will be used towards school operating expenses. A gift to the Endowment Fund will give perpetually into the future.
