Provide one year's schooling in Dolanji, India for 25 Nepalese Bon children.
The Bon are a minority ethnic group that live in mainly rural Nepal. Less than one-third of the children go to school because of insecurity and lack of schools. The Tibetan Bon community in Dolanji, India, is providing educational and hostel facilities for hundreds of Nepalese Bon children that have been sent by their parents in Nepal for schooling. Many other children are on the waiting list.
The Yungdrung Bon Monastic Center (YBMC) will provide hostel facilities and schooling for 25 Nepalese girls and boys for one year.
Education will improve the life and standard of living of these children and will give them a base for an improved life.
They come filled with fear and with such sad eyes. With the help of the other children and the love of the YBMC staff, within a day there is light in their faces and joy in their eyes. - Toc Dunlap, Executive Director, Creating Hope International
