In the summer of 2004, we decided to build a schoolhouse for children from local families and orphans in the nomadic region of eastern Tibet. A year later we had constructed a temporary school made of cinder blocks and inexpensive materials to house the more than 35 students who were sent by their parents for an education. By the spring of 2006, we broke ground for the construction of Losal Ling Primary School or The Oasis for Clear Learning.
As of this August, we are proud to announce that the construction of Losal Ling is now complete! There are presently over 100 students living there and studying full-time. The school has the capacity to educate up to 300 students, and is becoming a major center for learning in this remote area of Tibet.
To learn more about or support the operating of our schools, see the Education Projects page.
