“My mother can only weave. He can’t read, write or do math. But I will learn it and when I grow up I will become a businessman. Plus, school is fun. I like going there very much.”
Sonam 7 years old, Sumdho Nomad Village, Ladakh
Every child should have the right to education. Nomadic children like Sonam, however, live high in the Himalayas and it is impossible for them to go to school, especially in winter. That is why we support the school directly with them.
The winter nomadic school “Winter Tuition” is small, mobile, warm and has great teachers. In it, little nomads learn to read, write and count and thus get a chance to break generations of poverty.
Let’s give them a choice!
How does it work?
In cooperation with the Swiss foundation Amma-la, we support winter education for almost 160 children aged 6-16. The school is divided into several classes, according to age and level of education. They learn together in small, easy-to-assemble wooden houses with plastic roofs and small stoves inside. The children have stationery, textbooks and notebooks, food and hot tea. Support also covers teachers’ salaries.
Education is the foundation! Do you see it the same way? Support the education of little nomads.
