Nepalese Children need Schooling and Housing

Nepalese Children need Schooling and Housing

There are 106 boys and 60 girls at the Bon Center, numbers do fluctuate during the year. The students enjoy a variety of taught subjects and activities as well as sports. One class activity they are encouraged to do is to be thoughtful and reflective of their experiences.

Here are the comments of one student, “I always try to be content and remember we have been given enough for our needs and not to be greedy. Good habits help stop negativity. We learn many things at the center as well as how to be a good person and to help others. I am trying my best.”

Students at the Bon Center are encouraged to care for their bodies and to develop mindfulness skills. The students all perform yoga every morning as part of their daily routine at the center and school.

They are encouraged to play board games such as chess and draughts to promote mental flexibility and challenge. Physical games are also part of the day with sports such as running, soccer, basketball and kick boxing.

Lachen said,” I love football the best. I follow the teams in Brazil, South Africa and Germany. I always try my hardest at football and want to be a footballer when I grow up.” 

Thank you for your support.

Currently there are 166 students at the Bon Center, 106 boys, 60 girls. The students  are given the opportunity to write essays about any topic they like. These were published in a booklet. Here is one student’s views:

“All human beings are the same no matter differences in culture, social background, life style. There may be differences in our faith, color, creed, religion but we should remember we are all the same.  We must stop discriminating against people who seem different and befriend everyone. Someone said, “Internal peace is an essential step for achieving peace in the world”. So how do we do that? – realize that mankind is all one. The essence of all religion is to understand our common ground.”

The Bon Center believes in a holistic learning environment where all aspects of living are addressed, academic, physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and life skills learning. Youth learn and grow into well rounded, thoughtful, caring individuals who are comfortable engaging with the world of difference they will meet in their adult life.

Thank you for your support.

The Bon Center cares for 230 students who come from communities in Tibet, Nepal and India. Most come from villages where people are poor, illiterate and there are no educational resources. The students remain closely connected to their home lives and are taught to appreciate all people no matter their backgrounds.

Here are some thoughts from one student,” Most of the Bon children come from poor and remote villages. I do not think I am unlucky to be born to a poor family. Poor people are very sincere, faithful and honest. They live simple lives but with high thinking. They are kind and loyal to each other. They think about other people’s troubles and try to help. They are looking for ways to develop the village to improve things for all. So, if we are born poor it is not unlucky but to die poor in spirit and living is our error.

Thank you for your support.

We are very grateful for your interest in the Bon people and their hopes for education for their young people. Students arrive at the center from remote places in Tibet, India, Bhutan and Nepal where education is difficult to obtain. Students recently received new uniforms. During the winter vacation the girls were taught English by one of their teachers.

Here is the story of one young boy:“Here is my experience from Class 1 to 7. When I was in my village with my parents I used to go to school and learned our language for 2 years. I was 5 years old. Then there was a break of 2 years due to family problems. I rejoined the same school for 1 more year and passed Class 3.

My brother then sent me to the Bon Center for further education. I am the first child in our family who has got a formal education in school. I came to the center because there is no school in my village where a poor child can get a good, modern education like I am getting at the Bon Center. The center is my second home, my second family. From the day I arrived someone came up to me and asked my name and from then on he has taken care of me like a big brother. That is what it is like here.”

Thank you for your support
