Nunnery School


Currently, 14 girls attend the Nunnery School in Tsarang. The school is run as a boarding school and provides the girls with an in-depth training in Buddhist religion in addition to basic school education. This resumes old traditions; in Mustang there have always been nunneries which have made education possible for girls. Today, the older schoolgirls perform prayer ceremonies, so-called pujas, in the households of the population and are highly appreciated for this.

After completing the seven years of schooling, the girls can decide whether they want to go to secondary school or return to their families. Six former students are currently attending Sakya College in India. Our school association facilitates them the return to their homeland during the summer holidays by covering the travel costs. Every year, the school association takes care of the meals of the schoolgirls, including the remuneration of the housemother. In addition, irregular expenses such as a wooden floor or new computers for computer science classes are supported. This enables a constant everyday at the boarding school. We are always pleased about project sponsorships for the Nunnery School. At the request of the school management and the school committee, no sponsorships tied to children are awarded.
