A bright future for Nepal's Himalayan Children
Snow Manjushree School
The Snow Manjushree School* was founded in 2014 by Buddhist monk Sonam Gyaltse Ghale (Buddhist name: Lama Dhundup). He started this organisation to give unprivileged children from the remote Himalayan
region (Manang District) the chance to receive quality education free of cost.
At the moment the Kathmandu-based school is providing a full-board home like environment and education to 108 children in the age of 2-16 years old. Children from nursery to class 5 are being schooled at Snow Manjushree School. Older kids are going to the Rashmi Secondary School in Swoyambhu, Kathmandu. All the children are being offered the standard Nepali curriculum and receive additional classes in Tibetan (their mother tongue) and extra activities offered by international volunteers.
The aim is to educate the children in such a way that they can build a better standard of living for themselves and eventually to empower their own Himalayan communities.
Now the children are going to external schools, but Sonam wants to establish an own boarding school especially for those unpriviliged Himalayan Kids. Here he wants to offer a comprehensive 10-year curriculum that will cover modern science and technology, humanities, languages and arts, as well as a steady training in Buddhist teachings and yoga.
*Gangkar is Tibetan for snow. So in some references you will see Gangkar Manjushree instead of Snow Manjushree.
How I Can Support?
Sponsor New Classroom Construction
At first, children that joined the project used to live in a flat in Kathmandu, but after the earthquake of 2015 it was crucial to find a new home for the kids and the actual school was built.sponsor now
