During the years of Tibetan exile in India, monks and lay people have been scattered all over India, Ladakh, Sikkim, Butan and Nepal. In order to preserve both life and Culture, the TST has aimed some of its efforts at raising sponsorship for individual children and young people. It has been traditional for one of the children from a family to attend a monastery or nunnery. In the past it was the only way Tibetans would receive any education.
We still have an additional children and young adults who are in need of some support. Would you be able to make a donation so we can support them?
With your help we can sponsor children and young people from a nunnery in Ladakh and two monasteries in the northern India. Many of these young people have been orphaned or their parents are too poor or ill to be able to feed them. Examples of our support to lay Tibetans are: 3 sisters of a monk whose parents have passed away, two children of a cook on low wages and a young woman studying to become a nurse.
We would ask anyone who is willing and able to help by contributing £10 or £15 a month, to support our young people. This money would be sent quarterly to the beneficiaries which would go towards food, clothing (all three of our institutions are high up in the Himalayas and need warm clothing!) plus stationery for their educational needs. The money we send goes such a long way and probably represents at least 10 times the purchase power it has in the west!
