FAQ Lo-Manthang

Can I volunteer through the school association in Nepal?

This is not possible in Dolpo and Mustang, as a daily permit fee of 50 dollars is charged by the state. In addition, the permit is only issued for a limited period of time. However, lessons at the boys’ convent school are held in Kathmandu in winter. Here you can apply.

Can I retreat to a monastery via the school club?

Unfortunately, this is not possible in Dolpo and Mustang, as a daily permit fee of 50 dollars is charged by the state. In addition, the permit is only issued for a limited period of time.

Which trekking provider can the school association recommend?

Anyone who travels to Dolpo or Mustang with the trekking provider Wanderlust www.wl-reisen.ch supports our projects.

Which local trekking agency (for individual trekkers) can the school association recommend?

The school association cannot make a specific recommendation. Personally, however, the board members usually travel with Mustang Adventure Trek.

Can I actively work for the Lo-Manthang school association in Switzerland?

The association is always looking for volunteers for different events. We are happy to put you on our list of volunteers. Please contact us without obligation via our contact form.

Can I support the association with donations of goods?

Due to the high transport costs and import regulations, we procure the necessary material on site. This also generates work for the population in Nepal.

How are the projects supervised and controlled?

The executive board regularly travels to Nepal and monitors the agreed measures on the spot. The travel expenses are privately borne by the board members. This way we can guarantee that over 95% of your donation will be used in Nepal.

Can donations be deducted from taxes?

Donations from Switzerland and EU countries can be deducted for tax purposes. Payments from EU countries are made through Foundation 100. The school association Lo-Manthang receives 100% of the donations received.
