  • We’ve found that the older the child, the harder it is for us to find a sponsor.
  • We currently have more girls at the school than boys, but often, the majority of the kids who need sponsors are boys (we’ve been able to find more supporters for girls).
  • Overall, Thrangu Rinpoche has always equally educated girls and boys, nuns and monks, as Buddhism is about mind, which has no gender.
  • We have two ‘Special’ classes  for new students who are a little over-aged and missing the Tibetan or Nepali language. Our ‘Special’ class teachers speak all three languages: Tibetan, English and Nepali.
