KarmaBlast

Girl’s School in Tibet

 

Our new project is an all-girl’s school in Tibet.  Property for the project is secured.  The school has overwhelming support from the community and Village Elders voted to approve the project unanimously.  108 girls have been selected to attend.

The monastic community, which also operates a boys’ school nearby will oversee construction and management of the new facility.

$500,000 will cover the cost of construction including dormitories, kitchen and cafeteria, a large school house and various outbuildings for lavatories and laundry facilities, teacher’s salaries, school supplies, books, desks, beds and small in-room stoves, school uniforms, and ensure sustainability for 3 years.
