Providing opportunity to Bon Children

By Elizabeth A Appleyard | Program Administrator

Many of the Bon students at the Children’s Welfare Center (CWC) at Yungdrung Bon Monastic Centre (YBMC) in Dolanji, India are from Nepal.  All of these students are very poor and many are orphans or have lost one parent. They would have no chance to attend school in their native villages.

Fortunately, they were granted the opportunity to attend the CWC, where they are provided housing and a quality education.  Here is a story of one student who attended the CWC for many years.  He learned English while attending school: 

I was born in a small village Nepal.  My father is a farmer and  could not afford to send me to school until I turned 7. I went to school without shoes on my feet and had no school supplies like pencils or notebooks. I was lucky to be able to transfer to the school at the Bon Center. I have made friends and play sports and study many subjects and  learn about life and how to help others. Educaton is vital to modern life. I must keep learning and share what I learn to help others.  

Thank you for your support and interest in the education of Bon youth.
