Danakosha Trust has sent a clothing donation to a lay school in Dzachukha, Tibet, that has been our aid recipient since a few years. The tribes of Dzachukha are nomadic herders. Environmental conditions are hard but nomads are self-sustaining and have been able to preserve their cultural continuity. Lately the modern influences have made way to this region and are threatening the traditional way of life.
Since the nomads are living in different locations according to the seasonal changes, most of them do not read, and speak only their native dialect. The educational opportunities are limited and thereby we are very pleased to be able to help the girls and boys studying in this lay school. Danakosha Trust sponsored the annual clothing for the children. These photos were taken on the day the children received the clothes and both teachers and children were very happy about the donation.
