In 2011, a Buddhist trekking group rested for one night in the remote valley of Limi, Nepal while heading to the sacred mount Kailash in Tibet. Fortunately, a member of the group could speak the local Tibetan dialect and was able to bridge a conversation between the Limi people and the travelers. They were anxious to tell their story.
The travelers learned of the three small stone schools in the region had been left empty and without support shortly after they were built by the government a few years back. The school was on the verge of closing within weeks. The closing of these schools meant that parents would have to send their children to Kathmandu or New Delhi for work or education; most likely never to return again.
These Buddhist travelers happened stopped into the CITTA Hospital on their return home. They explained the conditions of the communities and asked if we could support the schools. We more than happy to assist this amazing culture in need of support.
CITTA pledged to support these three schools annually, a promise made possible by the generous donors like you.
