Dolpo Bon Society and School

Dolpo bon society is located at Dunai, the district head quarter of Dolpo, Nepal. It was registered in the district administration office in 2003 as a nonprofitable organization. The foremost aim and objective of dolpo bon society is to improve the livelihood of the people living in the rural area of dolpo by providing them with modern education and teaching the children to preserve their culture and tradition. Therefore, the founder president of dolpo bon society, geshe muri nigma kunkya rokaya established dolpo bon school, a primary school in 2007 and started formal education in 2009. Today dolpo bon society has four buildings: a two storey building as boys and girls hostel, additional two storey building for dinning and staff rooms, a one storey building for kitchen and another one storey building with six rooms which serve as classrooms for the children. The school provides free education, foods, clothing and all necessary requirements for schooling. Unfortunately, the school and children do not have any sponsors except tsering dolkar gurung, so from the very beginning rinpoche has been supporting the school with his personal income from teachings, performing rituals, reading astrology in foreign countries and through some donation from his foreign students and friends.

Children and their family background: all the children in this school belong to very poor families. Most of them are between the age of five and sixteen. Some of them either have no parents or must do difficult domestic works. As a result, few children have physical and mental problems. All the parents of the children depend upon small scale of field produce in remote village of dolpo.

After completing primary school, Geshe ensures they receive further education by giving them the following choices: is located close to this school. The boarding school supports the education of a). They can join English boarding school which each child until the completion of their higher secondary school. b). If they are keen to study Bon Philosophical and religious study, Geshe arranges for them to join Triten Norbu Tse monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal or Menri monastery in Dholanji, Shimla, India. c). If they want to continue the lineage of trantric Lama in their respective villages, they have facilities to study traditional Bon rituals, preliminary practices and advance level with the help of Geshe himself and Trantric lama from the villages of Dolpo. Hence, to ensure the present and future of their children, ‘Dolpo Bon Society’ urgently needs financial support and sponsor for them. As we do not have any sponsors, Geshe has been able to provide financial support to a limited number of children. There are still hundreds of poor children in the remote areas of Dolpo who do not go to school and become victims of domestic work. To provide free education opportunities to more children like them, we need more financial supporters.

Future planning for 2019/20 Installation of solar:

Dolpo iS a very cold place and it is very hard to use cold water, especially during the winter season. Children often face with different health problems due to the use of cold water. Another issue is the electricity, although there is electricity, it unreliable to be used in a school. Therefore, if we could install solar, it could be a remedy for winter complications.

Establishment of Library:

It has been felt that only fixed curriculum is not enough to gather ample of knowledge, so if a library is established, students will have more extra knowledge of their choices. Therefore, a library a has become one of the important needs.

Upgrading the Classes:

Now the school comprises of classes till grade five. However, due to the increasing number of students the school infrastructure also must be extended. Hence, we need to upgrade it up to grade eight. Since we already have a onestorey building with six classrooms, we are planning to add one more storey on top of the existing building to add another six classrooms. The assumed budget can be around USD 45000.
