Lobzangs first school day in Leh, November 2011
The 21.11.2011 is a very special day for Lobzang - after having received the news that nilam decided to finance his studies at a school in Ladakh’s capital Leh, Lobzang immediately set off with his father for a 5days walk on the "Frozen River" ( Cheddar) to get there. When they arrived, his path led straight to the Mahabodhi School which enjoys a good reputation far beyond the borders of Ladakh. Mr. Deepak (the principal) assured to Lobzangs father and to us me that he and the other teachers would take good care of the boy. He informed us also that due to some "gaps" in Lobzangs abilities, he had to repeat the 8th class. Until now, we could not speak personally with Lobzang yet, but as we have heard from Mr. Deepak, the boy is doing fine and that he is very excited that his personal dream of going to school in Leh now has begun like an adventure! We are all truly happy and relieved that everything went on so well!
For Lobzang to one day get his degree that would allow him to become a teacher one day (as he wishes) will take another estimated 3 years of staying and studying at Mahabodhi school. Therefore we are happy about any support that can help us to raise enough money for his education. If you have any questions about the project or might want to share your ideas and thoughts about Lobzangs dream, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to hear from you!
In addition to that, I might say that Lobzang loves Mail – so if you would like to write a letter to him, please contact us and we will be happy to provide his address for you. Thank you very much and best wishes - Thuk Che Che and Tashi Delek!
