More Bon Children Coming for Education

The Yungdrung Bon Monastic Centre (YBMC) in Dolanji, India reports that the number of students that they are supporting is expanding and that there are presently 246 orphan, semi-orphan or very poor Nepalese Bon children being supported by YBMC and attending school at the Tibetan Bon School.  204 are boys and 42 are girls. The children are from Bon families in India, Tibet and Nepal. The Tibetan Bon School now has an 11th grade and a 12th grade will be added this next year.  From the graduates of the Tibetan Bon School, there are now 38 children pursuing higher education studies in Masoori, Varanasi, Chandigar and New Delhi.  To accommodate the expanding number of children, more rooms are being built for older boys.  When they are finished, four boys will live in each room.
