"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

LOCATION AND FACILITIES


Lo-manthang lies in a geographically remote and harsh environment on the top of the world; the only access is by foot or by horses. The people are compelled to migrate down to fend off the severe cold in their region in the winter. Having taken into account time and money wasted in shifting up in summer and down in winter; we have settled down in Lakeside, Pokhara to allow the children to have some continuity in education.

The present facility has separate accommodation for boys and girls in clean and environmentally friendly surroundings with proper love, care, nutrition, medical care and a complete sense of family. Children attend the local government school. This year 15 of our children will attend the Tibetan school (S.O.S). Tuition fees have been kindly provided by the Tibet Relief Fund from the UK (Tsering Passang La).We hope to eventually send all our children to the same school if they receive sufficient sponsorship, as our children need to learn the Tibetan language as well as English. As well as the school syllabus, they are tutored in Tibetan language and culture at home. They are also often taken out to see and experience the outside world. It is important to guide the children through various books, and we have different storybooks to help with this. However, we currently do not have any kind of Library facility. Our resources are limited and so would welcome donations of more books in different subjects to enhance our children's learning. Song and dance are also taught at home.
