Grant amount: £1,737
Most of the young monks at Pal Ewam Namgyal Monastic School come from very remote and inaccessible areas of Nepal. Set up in response to a lack of available schooling in those areas, the school’s main aim is to provide students with a well- rounded education, as well as Buddhist studies.
During the summer the school is based in the high, and predominately barren, area of Mustang.
In the winter, to avoid its extreme weather, the 68 students come down to Pokhara.
With running costs being very high, this year we sent a grant to cover salaries for eight teachers, which the school could not otherwise meet.
