Grants Available in Tibet! - For their schools....


We receive a lot of donations earmarked for education - more than $19,000 in 2002 and 2003 alone.  We put these funds to work by making small grants ($500-$2000) to schools to purchase items essential for the health and education of the children in their charge. Many of these schools are government-operated, but the local governments operating them simply do not have the cash to provide more than basic buildings, teacher salaries, and books.  Leadership is key; when our Foundation finds a good, trustworthy headmaster, we work with him or her to identify the items most needed, where a little bit of money can make a huge difference in the lives of children.
