Nga Gyur Shed Dup Children’s Home
With the blessings of Buddha and the support from the generous public, we were able to build the first phase of the NGSDCL in 2008 at Azi Dugshul Village in the Bai Yu County, namely Nga Gyur Shed Dup Children’s’ Home (NSCH).
NSCH is a charitable entity to provide home, food and education for the abandoned, homeless and deprived children, to let them know that they are not alone; to foster their ability; to cherish what they have and pacify their fear, so that they grow up to lead a normal life and to be a responsible citizen.
NSCH provides a unique opportunity for underprivileged and orphaned children to be sheltered and educated at an attached school, to be loved and cared for in a family-like environment.
The objectives of NSCH are:
- To provide food and housing in a secure and nurturing home environment.
- To provide quality education that emphasizes on ethical and spiritual development and academic achievement.
- To prevent them from engaging in anti-social activities and promote ethical values, human potential and sense of responsibility towards society and environment.
- To educate the children and community about health concerns and offer adequate medical care.
Currently there are 50 children receiving care and monastic education in NSCH. The curriculum includes traditional Buddhist studies as well as language classes in Tibetan, Chinese and English, mathematics and art. After five years of basic education, all the children that have reached the suitable age and passed through the graduation examination, will leave their alma mater and step into the society, begins a new journey of life.
We will recommend the children that decided to become ordained monks that specialize in Buddhism to further their study at the Larung School of Buddhism, or to go to the city to make a living and broaden their horizons and we will introduce them to the factories. Regardless the children's decisions, we will be always supporting and sincerely wishing them well.
