Situated in the foothills of the Himalayan mountains, CARE supports up to 350 children who have trekked across the mountains to attend the school. This can take up to 10 days, the school is the only place that provides educational and residential facilities for these children.

Local Partners: Himalayan Buddhist Cultural Association, under supervision of Lama Chosphel Zotpa and with the full blessings of his holiness The Dalai Lama

Prior to CARE’s Involvement: The children were housed in a very small building with a lack of basic facilities

CARE’s Impact: CARE helped to fund the construction of a brand new school and hostel building accommodation over 300 children. The school has access to natural water from the mountains, which can  potentially be bottled and sold to the public, creating a sustainable income stream for the schools. The school enables these children to have the chance to move away from the poverty trap and potentially change their.

“The school is very efficiently run and managed, and it was wonderful to witness what a difference the educational facilities were making to the children’s lives.” Gita Hindocha
