Tibet 2011 – Schools

The parents of children adopted through the Association are almost all illiterate, and even at the beginning of our activities in Tibet, 13 years ago, the percentage of children who attended school in the villages was very low.
Thanks to funds raised by the Association new schools were built in both Singma and Nepu villages. The school of Nye, which educates up to class six, receives important donations every year from the Association, and the families of the children who attend school receive the school supplies and financial assistance necessary for their education.

Today, the vast majority of children are able to attend school, at least until class six. However, the number of children attending high school is also increasing every year and some students have even reached the great goal of going to university.
Once again this year there was a ceremony for the distribution of aid and school supplies to about 500 students from Nye School – many of whom live in the school, because their villages are too far away reach daily – together with those of Nepu and Singma schools. All the teachers and representatives of the local authorities were present at Nye School for the distribution.
