The school in Ngoenga was built in 2000 with personal funds from the Dalai Lama. It currently takes in about 60 serously handicapped Tibetan children between 6 and 18 years of age with severe physical or mental disabilities for whom individual and dedicated physiotherapy is provided.
The children need constant medical treatment, 24 hours/day assistance and specially trained teachers.
The aim is to provide basic education, wherever possible, and in any case assist them with daily sessions of speech therapy and physiotherapy.
Maintenance is extremely costly and the Tibetan Government in exile cannot meet all the expenses.
They have asked for our help, especially for the purchase of medicines and a partial renovation of the hostel/school.
