"Day Boarders" Need Help
All these children are in school now and they are all sponsored as 'day boarders', which means they come to us 7 days a week, from 7 AM until 7 PM. We do this becuase we have no more room to take boarders, yet the only chance these children have for education is SMD. All we ask is that they sleep somewhere else; we do everything else (3 meals a day + snack, clothes, baths, healthcare, haircuts, etc.) because the families can't afford to care for them. We have been stretching the amount of Day students to cover "day boardering" costs but given rising costs, Day Scholar sponsorship doesn't stretch that far these days.

Sangye Dolma is a very serious little girl who tries hard in everything she does. She was sponsored as a Day student, but out of extreme need, has moved to Boarding. She needs a little extra.
