Let’s get them to school

In October we set ourselves an ambitious goal: Get 500 Tibetan nomad girls to school by the end of the year.

 

By December 31, we were able to secure places for 304 girls at school.

 

Your help, support and enthusiasm for this campaign have been very strong and are proof that you also feel the urgent need to give young Tibetan women the opportunity to grow up studying and to become “advocates of peace and development” in their families and in their communities

 

We are determined to achieve our goal and that is why we have decided to postpone the closing date of the campaignThere are still 196 girls in our schools in Amdo who need your support to continue their studies. It is essential at this time of great difficulty for Tibet to enable nomadic girls to study in schools that maintain their culture and their traditions.

 

The new deadline is Losar, the Tibetan New Year, which starts on February 11.

 

Let’s get them all to school!

Begin a long-distance support now 

3)    donate for the Golok school 
The school built by ASIA back in 2004 responds to the need to assure the girls their right to study. Before the school was built, this area had a rate of female illiteracy that reached a peak of 75% – there was no scholastic institute that could be attended by girls. The very harsh weather conditions: the cold, the strong rains, the grip of snow (winter temperatures reach 40 degrees below zero) and the ever growing demand for enrolment led to the inevitable need of an intervention by ASIA. The project involves the construction of a new canteen and a kitchen, new dormitories and the renovation of the already existing buildings for a total of over 2 000 square metres of school property to be renovated or built. The most urgent works include the construction of a new cafeteria and new kitchens that require 122 thousand euro.
