Can you imagine being seven years old and spending the Christmas winter holiday hundreds of miles from your family?
Like many Tibetan children living in India, Dechen escaped from Tibet at a very young age. Her parents wanted her to have a good education and learn Tibetan.
The trauma of leaving her parents for a strange country deeply affected Dechen. She didn’t speak for a long time.
This winter, Dechen will have to stay at school. To make the journey back to her family in Tibet is just too dangerous to risk. She will feel very alone and isolated hundreds of miles from home.
Your gift today can make this winter a joyful and happy time for Dechen.
Instead of feeling left behind, Dechen could be looking forward to dance and music classes, a winter picnic and fun outings in the local area with her friends. But the school doesn’t have enough funds to cover these activities.
Will you give today and make this happen?
£26 could pay for fun winter outings for Dechen
£52 could help fund a winter picnic for Dechen and her friends
£78 could fund “joyful learning” classes for Dechen and her classmates
Thank you for your compassion and care for Tibetans like Dechen. Your gift will make a real difference for Dechen and her friends through this year’s winter holiday.
If we can raise enough for the winter activities for all the children who have to stay at school over winter, far from their families, then your gift will be used where most urgently needed to help other Tibetans.
