Provide one year's schooling in Dolanji, India for 25 Nepalese Bon children.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
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.
How will this project solve this problem?
The Yungdrung Bon Monastic Center (YBMC) will provide hostel facilities and schooling for 25 Nepalese girls and boys for one year.
Potential Long Term Impact
Education will improve the life and standard of living of these children and will give them a base for an improved life.
