2023 Updates and Gratitude

When the students complete elementary school, they can elect to attend the Indian Government School (they are bussed) from the Dorje Zong School) or they can move to Dharamsala, a community of Tibetans where the Dalai Lama resides, and attend Dolma Ling University. When entering there they begin a 16 year program in Buddhist Philosophy. This leads to the prestigious degree of Geshema (PhD). We have 8 young women in their 3rd year. 

The Great Push to build a larger school and help educate additional girls in Zanskar has exceeded our original expectations. 

What this means is the original school served nine (9) girls and we had planned to build a larger schoolhouse and serve thirty-two girls (32). Additionally we wanted the school to be built of a quality that would enable residence for the entire year, including windows to brighten up the insides and increase usability. Remember that the original school was two rooms and no windows, and was inadequate for the winter in this remote region. 

Our initial support for the school was incredible. In two years we were able to build a new school that is now occupied year round. The enrollment is now fifty (50) girls and additional teachers have been hired as well. The local people have been helpful in the construction of the school and we are extremely grateful.

Our expectations have been exceeded and it is gratifying to know that these young women will take their education and teach their children. Others will now have the opportunity to go onward to higher learning. The value of education is priceless! 

All of this was made possible by you, our generous donors. Your generosities have furthered young women’s education and helped preserve Tibetan Culture and Language.
As we close out our year we at Deep Roots Himalayan Foundation ask again for your support.
