The coordinator of the project at YBMC in Dolanji, India for educating Tibetan refugee children writes the following:
“All the children are doing well in the center. Children have just organized a get-together for all the staff and the children on the occasion of Teachers Day and presented many cultural programs.
Recently, four boys and one girl participated in the mathematics relay competition in Mussoorie and the girl took individual third position among the twelve school participants. The girls, who all come from rural areas in Nepal, are doing pretty well in the school.
This year we have purchased new mattresses, bed sheets, pillows and pillow covers for all the children. We have brought one new washing machine and hired one lady for washing the clothes of the small children. Earlier this job was done by the senior children. We have made some changes in the diet of the children and are trying to give more pulses (beans) and fruits to the children. In the month of July, during summer vacation, children had three days get-together, house wise sports and games competition.
We would like to thank all who help us educate and take care of the Bon children in Dolanji!!!”
