The school has an excellent reputation in the area, and there are now 200 students who wish to enrol in the school. The importance of education for these children cannot be overstated. There are high rates of illiteracy amongst the local population and people here live in extreme poverty. Education provides possibilities and opportunities where there are otherwise very little such opportunities. Education may, for instance, lead to Tibetans starting their own business, becoming doctors and engineers and helping others in the community, clearly something positive for the local community.
What we need
NTF is currently seeking assistance from an English-speaking teacher who might be able to work with the students, as well as financial assistance to both urgently rebuild the school and for ongoing operating costs in order to maintain its current high standards.
