Challenge

Literacy for women in the Tibetan Autonomous Region was estimated to be 57% in 2000 (2007/2008 UNDP China Human Development Report). Most Tibetans in the Kanze area are farmers and nomads, living far from the town so many children need to board. The government gives some funding, but it is not even enough to pay for the food. There is nothing for bedding, clothing, books or medical care so that many children, particularly orphans and those with only one parent, simply can’t afford to attend.

Solution

ROKPA provides funding towards food, books & stationary, healthcare, bedding and school fees for these girls who are either orphans, from single parent or destitute families through their time at this primary school.

Long-Term Impact

By providing these girls with an education, we are helping them escape from a cycle of poverty. It will bring about social change, as they in turn will be more likely to ensure that their children are educated and make it the cultural norm.
