"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

Sponsorship


The HCCH is a charitable organization. Right now, the home is being run under the support from our individual sponsor ship, general donations. We are running of the 6th years in the stage of providing and shaping our buds under care with the opportunities to develop their skill to the fullest. And to ensure a secure future, we seek sponsors from our generous friends without which this would not be possible. Please donate what you can or sponsor a child. You can become an individual child sponsor.

We are continually trying to find sponsorships of any kind, be it individual children sponsorships or tuition fee sponsorships for our children as it would lighten the load on our budget and allow us to put more of our resources to other areas of importance such as food and nutrition.

As of 2009, individual sponsorships for children cost US$565 a year. Before the child enters college, this money goes to the food, clothing, tuition fees, and the general use of HCCH. After Class 12, when the child is eligible for university, this money will go solely towards paying for the child's college tuition fees. For those children who are interested in other fields that require a different kind of professional training such as mechanical work, the money will go to paying for those courses after they finish Class 12. Tuition fee sponsorships for children who are currently not attending Tibetan school are available at US$165 a year. The US$165 a year sponsorship covers only the tuition fees of sending the children to school.

General Donations


General donations of any amount go into a general fund to assist with providing extra health care, house rent, buying household things etc. We would greatly appreciate any type of support, be it in the form of donation of specific items, monetary donation, or half/quarter year sponsorship by you or a group of your friends. You can also help us in purchasing books, musical instruments, bunk beds, blankets etc. for the Himalayan Children's Care Home.

6. Vocational Training

The vocational training is extremely useful for elder children. Such training would of course involve computer skills training, trekking guide, dance and singing training for those who are interested. However, we also envisage training along the lines of learning traditional skills of weaving, making traditional Tibetan handicrafts, Buddhist drawing, and traditional Tibetan dancing. This would help keep the children in touch with their Tibetan culture.
