Sponsorship for a child in Tibet is $380 a year per person for food, shelter, health care and education. Due to conditions affecting the orphanages in Tibet, we are unable to provide a profile for an individual child but please know that your sponsorship will be able to provide healthy meals, basic necessities and education to support caring their children.
KAP established the Dorje and Sanji Charity Home (Orphanage) named after the two founders in Tibet in September 2004. This Home has 25 orphans and is located in the Waka Township, on the bank of two major rivers and in the center of five counties of Derong, Chatring, Batang and Dechen and Gyalthang on the border of two Chinese provinces of Sichuan and Yunnan. Orphans are recruited and selected from these five counties. These orphans study in the local primary school, live in the school hostel and eat with the local students. Your support is needed for food, shelter, health care and education of these children.
Sengchem Drukmo Girl’s Home and School, Golok is located in a very remote area officially recognized as being one of the poorest counties in Tibet. The Home has made a special effort to serve underprivileged girls whose families cannot afford the most basic necessities, or are homeless, or whose parents are suffering from physical or mental illness and cannot care for their child. Currently 50 girls live at the Home and attend a nearby elementary school. The Home’s reputation has spread and as a result 150 girls are on the waiting list to be admitted. Conditions at the Home are very dire—support is needed for basic necessities, including fuel to heat the rooms. Your sponsorship will make a very big difference in the life of a young Tibetan girl.
