This microproject will provide food, clothing, books and supplies to a poor Bon student studying at a Tibetan Bon refugee center in Dolanji, India. Giving this student an education will change the course of their life forever.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The Tibetan Bon monastery in Dholanji takes in orphans and students from very poor families and provides them with food and shelter so that they can attend the Tibetan Bon refugee school. This scholarship will provide an education for one student.
How will this project solve this problem?
This microproject will provide the funds needed for room and food for one poor Bon student for a year.
Potential Long Term Impact
Education will improve the opportunities of these young people and the standard of living for the entire community. Some Tibetan students who have benefited from past scholarship programs have returned to their homes to work as leaders, teachers and health workers.

In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
