Seramey Thoesam School was founded in 1976 under the guidance of the re-established Sera-Mey Monastery. The school provides full-time, free education for children from destitute families, orphans and newly arrived refugees from Tibet. In the early days the small group of pupils took their lessons outside under the shade of the trees. There are now more than 300 pupils, aged from 5 to 17 years, who receive a modern education using Tibetan language in addition to Hindi, to prepare them for life as a layperson or as a fully ordained monk. The school receives no government funding and struggles to provide even the basic essentials for the boys. The aim or purpose of its establishment is to educate our young novice with the facilities of modern education. We specially care those who came from Tibet for monastic education and destitute who lives in this monastery. We appeal for your help anyway you can.
