Match our Challenge Grant! A generous donor has promised matching funds of up to $10,000 for the Children’s Educational Fund specifically designated for children in Rumtek, Sikkim, India. In order to obtain the full matching grant, we need to raise an additional $8,725. Your donation today will help us reach our goal.
The Bodhi Seeds Children’s Educational Fund sponsors school fees for children in the Himalayan region. The donor has designated $10,000 to sponsor the education of children living in the lay community of Rumtek, who ordinarily would only have access to a rudimentary education. In order to achieve their full potential, the children need to be provided with books and attend better schools, where fees range from $400 - $800 per year.
100% of your donation goes to the school fees, and will be doubled by the matching grant.
Rumtek Monastery holds a special place in our hearts, and the Tibetan lay community in the surrounding town has many families who have a shortage of resources and struggle to pay school fees.
You can change a child’s life by supporting this fund today.
Your donation will help disadvantaged students in this rural area develop literacy, and help them reach their potential by attending a school with better infrastructure and curriculum.
If you are interested in sponsoring a specific child, whether in Rumtek or another Himalayan region, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will give you the name and photo of the child you are sponsoring.
To help us obtain our matching grant before October 31, please donate here today. Please specify that you would like your donation to go toward the “Children’s Educational Fund.”
