Challenge

The Bon are a minority Tibetan ethnic group that fled to India when the Chinese invaded Tibet in 1959. In 1968, the Bon established a community in Dolanji, India on donated land. Today, 75 Tibetan Bon families (including 300 children) are settled there. The community has an orphanage, children's hostel, school (to the 9th class), health center and community farm. Students wishing to continue their studies need scholarships to attend school outside of the community.

Solution

CHI has helped the leaders of the Bon community write grants to improve their water, sanitary, health, education and living condition. CHI has also provided funds to purchase a milk cow and improve water and living conditions.

Long-Term Impact

CHI is working with Bon leaders to make secondary education possible for the community's children through scholarships. This project will allow 10 children to attend school for one year.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
