Nepali Children need Schooling and Housing


This project will help Nepali Bon children and youth, who are orphans or poor, by providing housing, food and primary through post- secondary education. A minority group, many Bon children live in poverty and have no access to education. The Bon Center in northern India houses, feeds and provides education to hundreds of Bon children and youth, giving them an opportunity for a better life.

The Bon are a minority ethnic group that mainly live in rural Nepal. There less than one-third of the children attend school because of insecurity and lack of schools. The Tibetan Bon community in Dolanji, India, provides educational and hostel facilities for Nepali Bon children that have been sent from Nepal by their parents for schooling. There are many other children on the waiting list.


This project will enable Bon Center to provide hostel facilities and schooling for 25 Nepali girls and boys for one year. These children cannot get a good education, in the poor communities where they live. Traveling far from home is the only option for many Bon families. The Bon Center is trusted and well known so families feel comfortable about sending their children to the center.

Long-Term Impact

Education will improve the lives and standard of living of these children and give them more opportunity than they would have had if they remained uneducated. They will have the chance to live a better life and provide for their families. Many of the students go on to higher education including technical schools or university and get good jobs and so can provide for their families back in Nepal.
