Dongche school

In 1993 we arrived in Dongche, a poor village of farmers, in a moonscape surrounded by mountains and characterized by an arid climate. 


In 1997 we built the Dongche School, which today welcomes around 200 children. The school consists of 12 classrooms (from garden school to 6th grade), accommodations, kitchens, canteen, toilets, and a storage room.

The structure also includes a cultural center and a library with more than 4000 volumes in Tibetan, Chinese and English.

Throughout the years, the school has become a model for the whole Prefecture. Most of the students live in it, as the long distances make it impossible to go to school on a daily base.

Since 2002, the long distance sponsorship project has given all the students coming from very poor families the opportunity to have access to the same education of the other children.

At the moment, the long distance sponsored children through our project are students that, like the others, have the opportunity to acquire the necessary instruments to enter modern society while strengthening their cultural identity.

Many children need both our and your help. Make your Long Distance Sponsorship>>

As the school’s headmaster says: “If the Dongche school was not built, these children would have forgotten their language’’.

This project is based on individual support: the supporter distance sponsors a child, with whom he/she can create a real and personal relationship through correspondence and travel to the place where the child or monk lives.

In 1997 we built the Dongche School

Provided books in the Tibetan language, English and Chinese, and furnished a library open to both children and teachers

Provided each child with their everyday needs, such as school materials, food, basic medical care and clothes.

An increasing number of children at Dongche school need us. Do you want to help us?

Together, we must continue providing:

  • Food
  • Heating
  • Medical care
  • School materials
  • Clothes


The children living in Dongche school need our help. Choose  your long-distance sponsorship now!

It only takes 80 cents a day to cover the basic needs of a child, if you think about it… It is less than the cost of a cup of coffee.
