Snow Manjushree School
The Snow Manjushree School* was founded in 2014 by Buddhist monk Sonam Gyaltse Ghale (Buddhist name: Lama Dhundup). He started this organisation to give unprivileged children from the remote Himalayan region (Manang District) the chance to receive quality education free of cost. At the moment the Kathmandu-based school is providing a full-board home like environment and education to 108 children in the age of 2-16 years old. Children from nursery to class 5 are being schooled at Snow Manjushree School. Older kids are going to the Rashmi Secondary School in Swoyambhu, Kathmandu. All the children are being offered the standard Nepali curriculum and receive additional classes in Tibetan (their mother tongue) and extra activities offered by international volunteers.
