Nepal: Tibetan Children Education Shelter

Start a Campaign

Update: We praise God that the full amount has come in for this project! 

The ethnic Tibetan people live in very high terrain from 3,000-5,400m (9,800-17,700ft) sea level. These regions are deprived of electricity, clinics, health care education, water mill, telephone, and other necessities. There are no easy roads to reach their villages; one has to walk through the hills and valleys for many days in order to arrive in their villages. These areas are very backward in terms of development for their basic needs.

They are trapped into a cycle of poverty due to long winters. Their income sustains them only 4-6 months generally. Living at subsistence level, parents need the labor of their children, particularly girls, to help feed the family. This means that they cannot always afford to release their children to attend school or college; rather, they prefer to send their children to Buddhist monasteries to be Buddhist monks and nuns. Most children are sent to Buddhist monasteries and some look after yaks and mountain goats to help the family. 

Therefore, one of the greatest needs in the Tibetan mountain community is to assist and elevate hundreds of helpless orphans and poor children in education who are deprived of their necessities. We have been tackling these by trying to provide school supplies, uniforms, shoes, jackets, tuition fees, medical, and emergency assistance. However, there is so much more to do, especially when Tibetan children go for further studies in Kathmandu after grade 10. 

We are planning to make a shelter for the Tibetan mountain children in Kathmandu, because their parents and relatives are not able to continue to help their children in education. Once we make the shelter, they will stay free rent. Right now, there are 6 students with us in our rented house, which is very tough for us to pay monthly. That is why we want to start the shelter in Kathmandu as soon as possible, and we will also offer this facility for Buddhist students as well for the ministry purpose. In this shelter, we can keep at least 12 students, and we will do an evangelism and discipleship program as well. Investing in youth life is the most worthwhile, because they are the next generation of leaders in their own society and churches. 

Please partner with us to educate Tibetan children holistically, so that they are included and valued in the society. You can visit the student care center in the future with teaching and any gifts. 

The total cost of the two-floor iron tin shelter cost is USD 47,575, and $17,000 has already been pledged. We are trusting God for USD 30,575.00. 

Thank you very much for your consideration to be part of this project to evangelize and equip Tibetans for the Lord’s glory!
