The Ngoenga School, one of the first schools for disabled Tibetan children, was established near Dehradun, India in 2000 at the urging of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. “Ngoenga” meaning extremely happy or joyous. The children are being provided free boarding, education and health care services.The school is under the administration of Central Tibetan Administrative, Department of Health (DoH) which does not have a stable source of funds to meet the expenses of the school. The DoH is, therefore, compelled to solicit sponsorship for the support of the students in the coming years.

Sonam Lhadhun and her twin sister were born in Tawang, India to parents Lobsang Dhargay and Mindu Lhamo. However, soon after the birth of the twins, their father left home and the responsibility of raising two special needs children befell solely on their mother. Sonam’s mother is a farmer and day laborer, so it became increasingly difficult for her to take care of both children and make a living to support her family. Like her twin sister Neema, Sonam also has Sjogren-Larsson Syndrome (SLS), which is a rare, autosomal, recessive disease. Sonam has developed enough strength in her arms to push her own wheelchair. She is currently learning to control and navigate a wheelchair. This will give her a new degree of independent mobility. Any help render for this girl will be highly appreciated.
