"Help us in helping the helpless !!" Authentic Tibetan culture survives only in exile in a few places like Mustang which has had long historical and cultural ties with Tibet. For as long as space endures and for as long as living beings remain, until then may I too abide to dispel the misery of the world.

- His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama

Dawa Sangmo

Dawa Sangmo is from Tsoshar (near China border) Lomanthang. Her father left her mother with three children. Her mother has to earn for the family and her grandmother too. Unfortunately their small farmland was swept away. Her mother goes outside to work in the field of others and her grandmother looks after the children and does household chores. As our home is aimed for such children of Mustang. Some local people introduced Dawa Sangmo to us. She comes from the mountains with the community to Pokhara. She was suffering badly from malnutrition, and had nothing besides the clothes she wore. We asked her her name and she told us '6 years'. She was then taken to take bath and we examined her. Her entire body was covered in huge fleabites. Her body was so tiny and 3 years old clothes fitted her.

Now she is going to school at nursery level. Beside study she has keen interest in song and dance. You can see her singing all the time.
