Challenge

Tibetan children from nomadic areas have limited access to local educational facilities and end up in government boarding schools far away from their homes and families.

Solution

The Pureland Project's village schools help maintain Tibetan nomadic culture. Our students are able to study close to their families and the earth - absorbing the precious traditional knowledge while complying with government policy.

Long-Term Impact

We support our youth to become successful, creative, thriving nomads, or whatever they want to be. Many of our graduates take vows upon completing school, becoming monks and nuns, others go on to become teachers and doctors.
